#DL10 High Impact Learning Communities Pt 4

This particular section is more hands-on / thought time. Creating your own strategy.
My initial thoughts on what I want to do (at least the partials) is at the link below

Wendy's Learning Community Plan

I will probably update the link later as we get more groups submit their ideas or when I find a better link.

--------------------------------------
Bonus with launch - you have a new toy folks want to play with.
Growth - the hardest.

Technologies most likely to be adopted when conveniently placed.

You can design a learning community with the understanding that there will be peaks and valleys in participation. Depends on the type of community.

Also - how do you define success?

------------------------------------
For maintaining engagement, some ideas include opportunities to meet with special executives, special training opportunities, events and games within the community.

Seed questions.

Encourage immediate contributions from the new folks.
- What was the one tip you found most useful when learning.....

--------------------------------
Sustain
- super-users can schedule, moderate, approve/deny content, etc
- you ultimately want the value of the community to be intrinsic to the community
- Chair / gardener - and maybe have it change every year
- Make sure that you are innovating to continue to make sharing etc easier.
- Keep funneling new members

-----------------------------------

You control the rate at which people learn.
And none of this is impossible.
