I found another important pdf of cultural analysis for e-learning for china by Tim Friesner and Mike Hart. It discusses e-Learning for China based upon the experiences of a free content website. Under cultural framework it discusses language, religion. Aesthetics, Law and Politics, Technology and Material Culture, Social Organization, Education, Values and Attitudes. And more importantly it identifies challenges for free e-Learning (page 86).I think cultural frame work is very much necessary to any country to understand their own challenges.
Thank you for sharing the article by Freisner and Hart (2004). The authors provide an excellent summary of the challenges China - a country whose economy is soaring and where "education is a highly regarded commodity" (p. 86) - will face in implementing free e-learning.
