This paper presents the results of the longitudinal and cross-sectional analysis of the interaction patterns of participants in a series of voluntary monthly online discussions during the first eight months of an alumni "lifelong learning" program. Interaction patterns of participants were analyzed to determine how participants' activity changed over time. The results of the study provide pictures of individual interactions and group participation in ongoing discussions that can help planners of online discussions to anticipate how the groups might grow and change over time, and to develop facilitation practices that encourage participation.
