Abstract

Over the last years there has been a hype about Web 2.0, a term that symbolizes a different way of using the web. The web has become a writable/rewritable environment where everybody can easily make his/her voice heard. To a certain extent e-learning has followed the web’s fate. In fact, today, we refer to e-learning 2.0 in order to express an idea of change in the ways the web is used in learning and distance education. This article analyses whether a community inspired to e-learning 2.0 can work out well for learning purposes with permanent education perspectives. The described community represents an attempt to adapt a professional virtual community to the standards of a new way of using the web. The study was carried out in order to understand whether this type of projects are actually sustainable, whether such a community can sustain itself and whether the experience can be transferred to other professional fields. The experience takes place in an academic postgraduate context of teachers interested in learning technologies.
