Abstract

Emerging approaches to developing rich learning environments combine multimedia, computer mediated communication, and a host of interactive strategies to connect people in varied and robust ways. But traditional understandings of learning environments and interaction usually stop short of the kind of engagement that will allow learning communities to form. This paper examines theoretical and practical issues around promoting the growth of virtual learning communities. It considers issues surrounding virtual learning communities that can emerge using communication technologies in formal and informal learning environments.
