This chapter examines the socio-cultural contexts of Asian/Pacific islanders in a Western Pacific island to identify key components for culturally responsive online course development. A model for constructing an online learning environment is proposed using McLoughlin and Oliver’s (2000) principles as design frameworks for designing a culturally inclusive instructional design that will support Asian/Pacific islanders’ learning in blended courses.
