INTRODUCTION

In order to increase the value of my action research and enhance the participation of the directees, Here in cycle two, I focus on some basic guidelines and opportunities to practice the online tool during the second face-to-face experience.


CYCLE TWO QUESTION

Would the participants increase their spiritual commitment if they increased their online participation through the use of UpToUs?


ACTION

Wikispace, Google Doc and UpToUs are all new tools that were recommended to me throughout the action research course at Pepperdine.  These tools are practical and easy to handle.  Since I have become familiar with Wikispace and Google Doc, I want to continue learning and expand my competency in using UpToUs with my directees for eGroup-SpiritualDirection.


Prior to the second face-to-face session, which we had February 25-27, 2011, I created a new website, UpToUs, for participants to use with a Youtube tutorial. (Please see the Appendix II) 












I created opportunities during the session for participants to contribute suggestions for improving the structure of eGroup-SpiritualDirection.  For example, we made a change regarding online posting of entries: Participants wanted to exchange email once a week as a way to maintain and develop the relationship with each other.  They also committed to writing a blog entry each week sharing how God is present in each of their lives through dreams or discernment.
