Abstract

A primary determinant of the success of an online distance learning program is its ability to develop a sense of community among its online participants. As a participant in the Pepperdine University Educational Technology Doctoral Program, we have firsthand knowledge and experience of the impact deliberate creation of community has on learning outcomes. A vehicle for the cultivation of this community can be found in principles of knowledge management.
