Hlapanis, Giorgos; Dimitracopoulou, Angelique
Technology, Pedagogy and Education, v16 n2 p133-151 Jul 2007
A distance learning educational program for in-service teachers from disperse islands was implemented in Greece. The program was designed to create and sustain a learning community within which learning would be achieved in both a formal manner (by implementing electronically supported courses) and an informal manner (through interaction and collaboration). During the implementation of the program, a case study was produced which focused on the analysis of the learning community that was created. In this paper analysis results are presented indicating how the learning community was created and how it evolved. In order to thoroughly analyze the learning community, appropriate tools and methods of analysis were used and are presented. These tools were also used for self-regulation. The outcomes of this program demonstrated some positive results. (Contains 4 figures.)
