Eleven students, enrolled in advanced instructional design courses at two universities, engaged in collaborative online discussions and video-conferences for the purposes of extending and enriching course activities and assignments. To determine the impact of our approach, we examined students' perceptions of learning, measures of higher-order learning, as well as perceptions of community. Similar to previous studies, results support the hypothesis that perceptions of community and perceived learning are related. However, evidence of a relationship between perceptions of community and higher-order learning was not found, suggesting that these relationships may be more complex and difficult to discern.
