Overcoming challenges faced by differences in time zone, available technology, and culture. Using technology educators can create a culture of inclusion in online course environments no matter how wide spread the student population may be. Creative use of existing technology can help. Another key element to success is communication with learners. Online learners are resourceful and creative. They will reach toward the instructor and the institution if a multicultural environment is on the other side of the digital divide to in their course rooms. Educators can help learners achieve incredibly positive outcomes in the face of challenging circumstances by incorporating international perspectives.
