New Book Investigates Global E-learning Trends

“Cases on Globalized and Culturally Appropriate E-Learning: Challenges and Solutions” offers unique insights on how online learning can be adapted to the needs of learners in other countries and cultures. In an era of rapid globalization, business organizations and universities are expanding their reach into learning environments that are often foreign to them.

Dr. Andrea Edmundson, author/editor, has undertaken the challenging task of integrating the knowledge and experiences of two groups — corporate educators and academics — into this book. While their approaches to providing culturally appropriate e-learning may seem averse, in truth, each benefits from the experiences of the other.

Since 2007, globalized organizations and educational institutions have been documenting when and why cultural analysis is required and how cultural adaptation is accomplished. E-learning is a cultural artifact — embedded with the values, nuances and preferences of its designers. However, using courses designed by one culture in another creates unique challenges. If your goal is to generate equitable learning outcomes for your targeted audiences (students, employees, etc.) in multinational, multicultural environments, then this book serves as the ultimate guide.
