  30. Jane’s 10 tips for setting up an Online Learning Community?<br />Provide a personal rather than a generic welcome<br />Identify the value an individual will bring to the community – particularly from “outsiders”.<br />Provide tips and guidelines for the community – keep “rules” to a minimum – consider community-generated rules. Be clear about its purpose.<br />Allow self-moderation of community – don’t always be the one to express concern – but “respect” views.<br />In the early days, provide regular postings: questions rather than statements work best. Demonstrate good practice. <br />Encourage sharing of links, resources, ideas, experiences etc.<br />As the community becomes self-sustaining, reduce your presence <br />Remember the 90-9-1 rule ; encourage participation but don’t under-estimate the value of “lurking”<br />Don’t try and force “social”<br />Don’t use social activity metrics as a measure of learning.<br />
