Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is two fold. First it reports on the research associated with the development and implementation of prototype versions of an online classroom simulation. It looks at how the use of these simulations helped to develop a community of practice among pre-service teacher users. Second, it reports on how a team of researchers, an instructional designer, programmers and graphic artists worked within a community of practice as the simulation software was created.
