This portfolio seeks to explore how multinational organizations can create self-paced online learning for adults that localizes the information to provide meaningful learning no matter the adult learner’s cultural background—utilizing academic journals and online resources specifically centered around andragogy, constructivism, globalization, localization, and best practices for computer-based training. This portfolio seeks to provides instructional designers with definitive examples of how to create meaningful and effective self-paced online learning for adult learners that may have English as a second language, as well as provides training materials that can be used to develop a better understanding of using localization, andragogy and globalization skills to create online learning.
