As an international student in Germany, the author is part of a large community: more students than ever decide to study abroad. However, learning orientation and cultural adaptation issues are unavoidably associated with study abroad. An important option to address the problems is e-learning.
The present study verifies the German and Chinese students? cultural standards, teaching/learning cultures, and preferences for e-learning systems documented in the literature. In addition, it develops a causal model integrating cultural standards with cognitive and affective components in preferences to enable e-learning systems to adapt to a specific teaching/learning culture.
