Research has found the creation of communities of learners is a valid technique in scaffolding student learning in online environments. This paper details a study of community building in a graduate education course. Utilizing communities of learners as a medium for educational context, students were provided with opportunities for shared enterprise, multiple and flexible methods for communication and interaction, and rapid feedback from the instructor. Data were collected in surveys, polls, and observations of online interaction. Additional information was gained from weekly emails to group communications officers. Strategies for group formation and community building are discussed. Results suggest initial face-to-face meetings should be centered on concentrated efforts facilitating interpersonal communication and team building. These efforts should include time to share personal interests as well as maximizing student interaction for the best possible fit for both work and play.
