With the growth of trans-national education online, more learners are experiencing learning environments characterised by cultural diversity. This timely book presents a view of recent thinking and practice related to globalised virtual learning environments, and suggests new ways of understanding the meanings that are created when learners, teachers, and institutions set out to create learning communities online. In doing so it will help to construct a new idea, that of the learning culture, which will be of particular relevance to researchers and practitioners in the rapidly expanding field of global online education.
