Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, July 8, 2014 8:16 PM

Love this "e-learning" post because it reads just like what I would write to describe how to create sustainable online community:

  1. Clear definition of expectations and purpose
  2. Providing clear instructions to students (or web visitors) in a group (or tribe)
  3. Emphasis on keeping groups (or tibes or personas) small
  4. Close monitoring and support to be provided by instructors
  5. Defining etiquette guidelines for proper participation
  6. Devising activities relevant to the topic

Lol, change "students" to "site visitors" or "customers" and I could have written this post for content marketing or online merchants. Great post and shows we are all online teachers now.
