This paper introduces the notion of a Community of Learners as a teaching and learning model that addresses the education needs of contemporary society. This model can be used to inform the design of online learning environments, and this is illustrated in the HENRE online environment. HENRE, like most online learning environments, has been designed to support learning in institutionally organised groups, however many of the learning needs of contemporary society may be effectively met through more spontaneous learning communities which emerge through an aggregation of people with shared interests and goals. A technology to support such communities could be developed from the existing HENRE learning environment.
