John Dewey, in Democracy and Education (1911/1966), proposed that democracy is more than a form of government; it is a conjoint communicated experience. If education is substituted for the word democracy the concept transforms into, education is more than a structure for learning; it is a conjoint communicated experience. This paper explores creating a student centered online learning community which creates a conjoint communicated experience. After 4 years of teaching an online course the author shares his strategies and the process of transitioning from a teacher-based environment to a student based environment. Statistical analysis of course data supports the conclusions of the case study.
