By integrating Web technologies, instruction can go beyond the walls of the classroom. The purpose of this paper is 1) to introduce three case studies of technology-enhanced globalization, and 2) to investigate factors in designing and implementing global instruction. The study found there are five factors in technology-enhanced global instruction: Context, Flexibility, Device, Authenticity, and Technical Support. Context consists of two sub divisions: instructional design and participation, whereas Flexibility consists of time and space. These factors need to be taken into account when designing technology-enhanced global instruction.
