Abstract

886,052 international students were enrolled in U.S. higher education institutions last year (Witherell & Clayton, 2014). As web-based instruction becomes more popular in higher education, instructors are being encouraged to put their courses online. Many universities offer online courses in their catalogs and numerous students, including international students register to these courses. To maintain satisfactory programs in these inter-cultural education environments, critical issues concerning learning experiences of international students must be understood by educators. This paper discusses critical issues that affect the learning experiences of international students and argues that instructional approaches with comprehensive learner analysis could result in better learner experiences for international students enrolled in online courses.
