Toward an Explanation of the Effect of an Individuals' Culture on Learning Outcomes in a Distance Education Environment
There has been much research done on the subject of distance learning; also the same can be applied to the studies of culture and its effect on how people work in groups. However, very little research has been done regarding culture's effects on the outcomes of distance learning. The goal of this research is to show whether cultural traits (individualistic-collectivistic) have an impact ( directly or indirectly) on learning outcomes (satisfaction, perceived learning and objective performance) in a distance education environment. Also, this research will look at the difference between the inherent culture and the sub-culture, which characterizes the community of the class.
