Abstract

This poster session presents preliminary findings from a case study that explores how different online models and environments affect the design and implementation of an international, university-level, distance education course. In the context of a U.S. -Taiwan collaboration that uses videoconferencing and Web 2.0 technologies, we examine the factors that influence the instructor's adoption of new technologies in relation to the cross-cultural factors. We also examine the various types of interactions that occur as a result of the online modes and the contexts of course. The findings will provide a portrait of factors and relationships that affect the development and implementation of the course and will inform a research framework for international distance education.
