Abstract: Multicultural students are now participating in eLearning environments at increasing rates annually. Facilitating expectations of multicultural eLearning experiences through content and design is an area of inquiry that also continues to expand (Edmundson, 2007). Little research supports contemporary eLearning developmental designs. Design practices are generally based on graphic art principles and are designed for perceived aesthetics. Sheridan (2001) has reported culturally bound designing principles may send unwanted messages to multicultural users. This is a presentation derived of a qualitative research study in manuscript (Debiase, 2008a). This study sought to understand how multicultural students perceive colors in eLearning environments. Results indicate cultural differences between multicultural participants and some common color preference trends. Suggestions for developing eLearning frameworks are presented.
