Hello. Sorry to bother you again but only four members answered the questionnaires, as this corpus is not enough for my research, could you please just answer those questions bellow?

* What does “online community” mean to you? And, what does it mean to you to belong to one?
* What unique experiences can an online community provide in order to help you learn better, in comparison to other formats of professional learning, such as face-to-face workshops, seminars, accredited courses etc?
* What other factors might affect (both stimulate and constrain) the way you interact online (in contrast to face-to-face contact)?
* As a reader, what do you experience when reading email texts or forum messages through a computer screen rather than through a face-to-face situation? (e.g., hearing voices, seeing words, etc.)
* What crucial factors do you think will determine whether or not an online community is sustainable?
* Would you consider your online community a sustainable one (e.g., ongoing for a period of time)? If so, in what ways? If not, why not?
* Have you changed personally and/or professionally as a result of your participation in your online community? If so, what are the changes and what factors do you think caused you to change? If not so, please speculate as to why not?
* What kind of CMC dialogues can you recall taking place which had a significant impact on the community, and your own learning. Which others had/have the least impact?
* Thinking of your own online participation, have you done anything with a view to specifically supporting other colleagues? If so, what was it? If not, why not?
* Please list some of the most relevant positive aspects and negative aspects of your community CMC.
* Use a word or a phrase to describe your online community.
* Would you let Raquel de Castro speak to you again for some follow-up dialogue? (No/Yes - please write your Skype ID)

Thank you so very much!
Best, Raquel
