    In recent years, there has been a rise in interest in receiving an education online. Learning that may be done outside of the traditional classroom setting, such as via the use of the internet, has gained significance as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As more and more education is made available online, it is imperative that educators find ways to create online environments that not only instill a sense of belonging but also make learning an enjoyable experience for all students. This requires consideration of how to encourage a diverse range of cultural perspectives inside an online learning environment. Learning may be significantly improved via the use of virtual environments by encouraging a diverse range of cultural expressions. On the contrary, it could be challenging to discover effective methods that can be used to enhance cultural variety in non-traditional educational settings. Competence in teaching that is culturally sensitive is essential for educators. Educators are better equipped and given the authority to innovate when they have a solid understanding of the aims of culturally responsive education. This ensures that their online classrooms are accepting of students from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.
