Barbour, M. K., Wenmoth, D., & Davis, N. (2012, November). Sustainability and maturity of K-12 online learning organizations in New Zealand. A paper presented at the annual convention of the Association for Educational Communication and Technology, Louisville, KY.
This session describes a study into the development of K-12 online learning in New Zealand, specifically the obstacles e-learning clusters face to achieve sustainability and maturity through the lens of the Learning Communities Online Handbook. Using a variety of data collection methods, the researcher identified three common barriers and four examples of networked schools. Based on these findings, it is recommended e-learning clusters encourage greater collaboration between clusters and greater consistency of activities.
