Whatsup group builds up more possibility for teacher activity group which makes distance become less problematic. However, some issues need to be taken into consideration:1.irrelevant and off-topic discussion 2.data-heavy files 3.lack of depth in discussion taking place


WhatsApp groups are a very organic way of creating remote communities. As you describe, the issue of irrelevant messages that disrupt the purpose of this ‘online’ community can impact engagement. I loved the video you created to illustrate the impact of these irrelevant messages. It was friendly, even funny, but the message was very clear. Great!


Nice to see Amy and dear Radhika! It took me down the memory lane where I, among the other trainee TAG Coordinators have watched the video and discussed about it. Beautiful memories!
