Creating a "Connected" Community? Teachers' Use of an Electronic Discussion Group.
Selwyn, Neil
Teachers College Record, v102 n4 p750-78 Aug 2000
Investigated British teachers' use of an online discussion group over 2 years. Results indicate that, although the online forum was widely used as both an information and empathetic exchange resource, many claims of establishing collectively- focused virtual communities of teachers remain exaggerated, as the forum was limited by various caveats associated with computer mediated communications groups in general.
