Abstract

With the advent of e-Learning and technology, the classroom is no longer comprised of students from the local community, but rather a potentially heterogeneous group of learners from around the world. Diversity is a way of life in the global e-Learning classroom. Therefore, it is essential that the facilitator address global needs, upfront, in the needs assessment, or the entire instructional design could be diluted. This article focuses on designers and facilitators being attuned to learner needs, as a first step in the needs assessment, related to cultural implications in the global context.
