Learning Communities – Social Learning Opportunities

Social Learning Experience

All students can learn from one another.  I am interested in understanding ways to bring students together to create a community of learning when the course size online will likely exceed 1,000 students. The learners will likely have varying levels of knowledge, skill, and ability. The average age of the learner is 37.9.

Although I don’t currently work with such large student cohorts – my students are under 100 in any given group – I find social media (facebook) very valuable for informal social learning. You want to prompt students to share common challenges, additional information, tricks and tips. I’m keen to learn what the others say.
