The purpose of this paper is to urge the inclusion of the factor of cultural variation in e-learning by presenting related evidence of cultural variation and to further provide guidelines for designing culture-sensitive e-learning tools, environments, and programs. From extensive literature review, we have found that people from different cultural backgrounds think and behave differently. A cultural variation of e-learning model is therefore developed and presented. Suggestions of ways to deal with language-triggered cultural variation effects in e-learning and responses to e-learning triggered by sociocultural effects are offered.
