model has been proposed showing the moderating role of culture between the relationship of influencing factors and student elearning
satisfaction.Cultural differences change the perspectives of individuals’, keeping in view; the Hofstede’s cultural
dimensions; power-distance, uncertainty avoidance, and individualism theoretical linkages are justified with the influencing
factors namely Human Factor, Course Factor and Technological Factor using literature. Administration should consider the
factors that have been pointed out in this study, for successful implementation of EL education system in different cultures. The
proposed model can be justified by applying empirical research on the variables in different cultures. Individuals in different
