Abstract

Current information and communication technologies allow more international connections. To succeed in the 21st century global society, students should develop their inter-cultural knowledge and the skills that will enable them to appropriately interact and work with people from different cultures. The rapid growth of online learning has created a need to study online environments which foster inter-cultural learning communities. This study explored how different cultures influence students' communication styles and strategies, collaboration and interaction, and social constructivist pedagogy to promote online collaboration. The study findings will help educators design effective online instruction for an inter-cultural learning community.
