Abstract

From the authors’ perspective, technology is both a tool and a developing factor which can foster cul-ture and learning development. This chapter focuses on the inter-relations that interleave education, technology, content accessibility and intercultural issues. With an introduction and related background, language learning is used as an example further to ex-plain these issues. This chapter then discusses authoring and content development for eLearning appli-cations (including authoring tools, virtual communities and forums) and examines technology and ac-cessibility issues in this context. The current state of eLearning is introduced along with a description of different tools and approaches. The chapter concludes with an overview of eLearning and the mar-ketplace.
