In this episode, Susan and Dan enjoy discussing culturally accessible e-learning with Andrea Edmundson, PhD, CPLP from eworldlearning.com. Dan recently met Andrea at an ASTD event.
Andrea's business is all about reminding us that learning needs to be accessible to everyone, regardless of culture. Some of the factors to consider include context, language, and instructional strategies, in addition to graphics and colors.
Andrea refers to the Cultural Adaptation Process (CAP) Model. You can read more about it and consider case studies through an ASTD Infoline publication.

Three that Susan found especially helpful are:
The LT Green Room is a podcast for Renewal, Retooling and Conversations about Learning. It is co-hosted by Susan Manning and Dan Balzer and its show topics are often drawn from members of LearningTimes.org, a free online community of education and training professionals from across the globe. The LT Green Room gives listeners (and ourselves) an opportunity to reflect on what they're doing behind the scene that results in an effective learning experience.
