In this panel presentation, we will examine some web-based media (images, videos, animations, games) used in Open Educational Resources for learning and discuss how those materials would be received by learners from different cultures. The panel leader will display a piece of media, the panel will then raise issues related to how people from different cultures would interpret the media (primarily based on nationality [panel will represent Brazil, US, China, Taiwan, Puerto Rico and ESOL students in the US], but will also discuss religion, gender, disability, SES, and race). We would then open it to the audience and how they view the piece of media. We will then go on to the next media element. Attendees will benefit from the participation and will be more informed about design particularly as it relates to issues of localization and globalization.
