The design and distribution of cross-border higher education courses via global computer networks is a rapidly growing phenomenon (Davis 1998). This paper describes a recent international Web-based course and presents research that focuses on the challenge of international, cross-cultural graduate course design in education. Using quantitative and qualitative methods of inquiry, successes and failures of the effort to address cross-cultural concerns are reported. This inquiry builds on existing literature. It informs the work of teachers, researchers, course designers and program developers seeking to expand instructional horizons through international academic collaboration.
