Blended Mutlicultural Learning

Greetings from the second day of the 2014 IEEE International Conference on Computer Science and Education (ICCSE 2014) in Vancouver.  Yuko Kato from Jin-ai University on "Intercultural Training in a Blended Learning Environment in Japanese Higher Education". Japan's mono-cultural society makes it difficult for students to learn about cultural diversity and this paper looks at the use of e-learning to address this using a Moodle based course.

This is similar to the issue I discussed yesterday in "Chinese and Australian Students Learning to Work Together Online". Perhaps Australian and Japanese students can share online classes via Moodle.
