Online Learning Communities
What is an online learning community?
An online learning community is a common place on the Internet that addresses the learning needs of its members through proactive and collaborative partnerships...people communicate via textual discussion (synchronous or asynchronous), audio, video, or other Internet-supported devices.
iEARN (International Education and Resource Network) is the world’s largest non-profit global network that enables teachers and youth to use the Internet and other technologies to collaborate on projects that enhance learning and make a difference in the world. http://iearn.org/
