Educators increasingly live more frenzied professional and personal lives. Yet, the demands to stay connected, collaborate, and learn continue to exert pressure on us. Participation on professional forums provide educators with possibilities to arrange their time and remain intellectually and professionally active. Attendees of this session will be given a working knowledge and skill set for joining and participating in AACE conferences. As educators become more active in on-line learning communities the may be faced with the opportunity to moderate a learning community. We will also offer comparisons to WebCT and WebBoard educational boards as referents to AACE professional boards. This presentation will provide skill and knowledge for novices who desire to participate in on-line communities. Leaders and moderators will be provided with an understanding of techniques and responsibilities of their role as a facilitator for on-line communities.
