This paper discusses some of the theoretical and practical issues of extending computer mediated learning environ ments across cultural borders. While it will be of interest to any instructor whose courses entail a cultural dimension, the following discussion speaks to an audience who is familiar with the technical and educational implications of incorporating the use of computer mediated communication systems in course work. Its overall purpose is to convey to the reader the benefits of incorporating a computer mediated cross-cultural learning environment into a course whose content and objectives are conducive to such an activity. The criteria for successful applications are presented and issues relating to training and design are discussed.
