Abstract

Current information and communication technologies allow for many and varied cross-cultural connections. To succeed in the 21st century global society, students should develop the knowledge and 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 cross-cultural learning communities. Our study explored how cultural perceptions may influence students’ online communication and collaboration behaviors. Based on a social constructivist pedagogy and the study’s findings, we propose a series of guidelines intended to help educators design effective online learning experiences and instruction for a cross-cultural learning community.
