The professional development of teachers is an important and necessary process in successful school teaching and learning. While there are varied approaches to professional development there is a widespread view that many have been problematic. The internet is recognised as having the potential to provide more effective professional development outcomes. This paper describes a framework for describing professional development websites and provides a classification of professional development websites based on community participation and problem ownership.
