Online courses serving international students present a number of distinct challenges. Instructors must address significant cultural differences, cope with the language barrier, and educate students about unfamiliar disciplinary standards. This presentation will demonstrate common technologies that are helpful in dealing with these challenges and discuss recent scholarship regarding other methods and tools that address the unique needs of the international online student. Attendees will also be invited to participate in a discussion of these issues.
