Abstract

Etienne Wenger’s notion of a community of practice has received much attention in academic research. It has been recently applied to the emerging analysis of distance learning programs. Whether specifically labeling student collaboration a community of practice or more broadly defining it as a collaborative learning community, educators are looking at ways to synthesize and integrate this model with theories concerning the utilization of asynchronous communication to create effective distance learning experiences. This study directly correlates this framework to the success of current distance education practices.
