Abstract

In order to determine what factors might lead to increased participation and effectiveness in voluntary online staff development, a case study was conducted. The results revealed a problem known as “churn.” That is, the majority of users went to the site only once or twice and then only for a short amount of time. The major barrier cited by staff was lack of time. This article examines approaches to overcomes involved for both users and developers of online learning activities.
