With the on-going "Learning Culture Survey", we aim to foster the implementation of culture-sensitive education. The motivation of this study is based on the need of a better understanding of the reasons for intercultural conflicts in education. These issues are particularly pertinent to international learning scenarios, such as in urban education, or Internet-based e-Learning. The results of this research are geared towards a development of activities that prevent students from losing their initial learning motivation. With our standardized questionnaire, we collected and analysed data from Germany, Ghana, and South Korea. In such a comparative culture-related analysis, the population is usually considered as a whole, regardless of the respondents' socio-cultural differences and assuming a single representative value per item. In this paper, we first analyse and discuss the results of our questionnaire section "Gender Issues". Afterwards, we analyse the overall questionnaire data to focus on the extent to which female and male students' answers differed. Finally, we engage in a discussion to what degree these differences impact the design of e-Learning scenarios. [For full proceedings, see ED557189.]
