In this empirical study, we investigate the role of national cultural dimensions as distal antecedents of the use intensity of e-tutorials, which constitute the digital component within a blended learning course. Profiting from the context of a dispositional learning analytics application, we investigate cognitive processing strategies and metacognitive regulation strategies, motivation and engagement variables, and learning emotions as proximal antecedents of tool use and tool performance. We find that cultural diversity explains a substantial part of the variation in learning dispositions and tool use. The design of personalized learning paths will, therefore, profit from including national cultural dimensions as a relevant design factor.
