NMSU College of Extended Learning has integrated the concepts of learning ecosystems, connectivism, and bioteams to establish a framework for integrating course management systems, Web 2.0 tools, and social networks with new learning skills and contexts. The ecosystem model connects pedagogy and practice to tools, enhancing new learning communities. Strategies for implementing, fostering and assessing communities will be shared.
