  2. 2. It’s all about humanware. Connect to the learners in meaningful ways, but give them space to make their own connections within the group.
  3. 3. It’s all about Online Presence. Be there for your learners and with them. In an online environment, it is essential that the members of a Community have the feeling of belonging, of being part of a group. http://www.flickr.com/photos/wgreller/260560153/
  4. 4. It’s all about Personalization. Cater for your students’ needs, learning goals, passions, interests. http://www.flickr.com/photos/desiitaly/2108944012/
  5. 5. It’s all about the Facilitator’s Managerial Skills. Prepare the lesson, give timely feedback, encourage knowledge construction, learn the tech tricks. Put the pieces together, connect the dots to make a “whole-sense” to learners.

  7. 7. It’s all about engagement. Surprise learners. Make them want to be there with you and the group in the virtual environment. Be there for them. Inspire them. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tetsumo/3802078924/
