Abstract: Learning in a so called Learning Network is particularly attractive to self-directed learners, who themselves decide on their learning programme as well as on the timing, pace and place of their studies. However, such learners may easily become isolated, which is detrimental to their studies. Furthermore, supporting them with their studies rapidly lead to staff overload. This paper discusses of ad hoc, transient communities as a means of tackling both problems. It is argued that such communities are well poised to enhance the sociability of a Learning Network and increase learning effectiveness.
