Virtual World helps overcome spatial limitations and allows users from various cultures to get together in the same virtual space. For this reason, cultural impact issues have arisen in several fields. Using the information processing and cultural adaptive theories as a framework, the researcher conducted a comprehensive literature review pertaining to the cultural impact on Virtual Human Resource Development (VHRD) learning platform. The purpose of this study is to explore the culture impact of creating a VHRD learning platform in the virtual world. This study also proposes a conceptual model of information processing that includes the cultural impact of a VHRD. The results of this study offer researchers and training program designers a better understanding of the cultural impact of VHRD learning platforms.
