5323 - Exemplar community presentation

Online PE

I was so lucky to have a great group with which to create the exemplar community presentation. Bonnie and Cheryl both are such creative and intelligent people - I was luck to have them for partners! Bonnie had already done some work with the online PE concept. Since all three of us are yoga practitioners...we decided to investigate online yoga communities.

Interesting, during our planning stages, we ended up using Breeze meeting. It worked so well! I had used Breeze meeting before this for office hours, but never as a meeting place to plan and discuss. I found that it facilitated our planning discussions very well. In our debate over synchronous versus asynchronous discussions, I'm still of the opinion that asynchronous is better for indepth, theoretical/philosophical discussions - while synchronous is better for specific planning/task oriented discussions.
