This presentation will describe three projects and the process of building a community from the catalystOhio Technology Committee (cTC). These projects are Online Learning, training of faculty in using and integrating Palm Handheld Computers in their teaching, and a Technology Mentor Project. Best practices and lessons learned from this community can help educators and policy makers in their decision-making and development of effective communities of practice.
