Abstract

This paper reviews the literature regarding cultural considerations in online education. With the expansion of Internet and computer technologies, online education is becoming a new means as well as a new paradigm in our current education. In this paper, online education is defined as one form of distance education which uses computer-mediated communication to achieve the learning objectives in an educational organization. The literature has indicated the importance of cultural factors in online education, but more research is needed on this topic. This paper specifically reviews the effects of culture in online learning environments, and the ways to accommodate these effects in online education. The theoretical framework in investigating this field is also discussed in this paper. In the end, this paper proposals some suggestions, as well as some questions for future studies related to cultural considerations in online education.
