Abstract

With the learning potential afforded by Web 2.0 tools, learning can now transcend time and space, linking individuals in vast groups of networked participants. Learning through networked communities is the new paradigm of online learning, called e-learning 2.0. Learners’ cultural perceptions and experiences influence their online collaboration and communication behavior. When learning communities transcend nations and cultures, this potential influence must be taken into considerations in the design of online courses for cross-cultural collaborative online learning. The purpose of the paper is to present the design of a cross-cultural e-learning 2.0 environment, which fosters a learning community and facilitates collaborative learning.
