This study integrated collaborative problem-based learning with blended learning to explore the emerging process and function of online learning communities among preservice teachers. Thirty-two preservice teachers participated in an 18-week instruction program. Analyses of online group discussions and portfolios found that (a) the integrated approach facilitated the preservice teachers’ formation of online learning communities; (b) the preservice teachers’ online learning communities emerged via four stages: motivation and acquaintance, socialization and identity, information exchange and consensus, and finally, tacit understanding and development; and (c) six factors influenced the development of the preservice teachers’ online learning communities.
