Abstract

Online learning has become a new paradigm in education, but very few research-based studies have addressed the cultural aspects of online learning. By using interviewers and observations, this study intends to examine the perceptions of Asian students of taking online courses in the United States. The specific questions explored in this study are: (1) How do Asian students shift their learning styles from physical classrooms to online learning environments? (2) What are Asian students' opinions of online courses? (3) How do Asian students interact in online learning environments? (4) How do the instructional dimensions of online courses accommodate the needs of Asian students?
