A typical student attending the Colleges is an Emerati whose English-language skills can't be taken for granted. Prior to coming to college, all schooling was in Muslim schools. In all likelihood, the student is weathy and drives either a BMW or a LandCruiser. He'll be studying engineering, computer science, or management. The distance learner will be coming online after work.
Can anyone share some stories or point to resources about tailoring online learning environments to non-U.S. cultures?
