Abstract

During its 26th year (2011), Universitas Terbuka graduated its one millionth student; three-fourths of these alumni are teachers, mostly domiciled in remote areas of Indonesia where the supporting infrastructure for information and communication technologies is limited. This condition has restricted their access to quality educational resources. The development of an online forum
for teachers aims to respond to this need, encouraging and facilitating the sharing and exchange of teaching experiences and expertise across the country, and serving as a repository for content in various media. Since its inception in 2010, over 50,000 viewers have visited the forum, and more than 1,000 are active members. A survey was conducted to explore and gain insight into the utilisation and management of the forum. Interviews amongst selected samples reveal that the forum serves more as an institutional content provider than as a medium for user-generated content.
