An online learning community (OLC) is a web-based learning environment with the latest digital technologies, where interconnected learning participants communicate, construct their knowledge collaboratively and share their personal experiences (Palloff & Pratt, 1999; Preece, 2000; Richardson, 2006).
OLCs have immense learning potential and bring additional benefits of flexibility and ability to track the learner’s participation and behavior. They can be used to train learners, spread across the globe, effectively.
