This paper analyses an online community of master's students taking acourse in ICT and organisational learning. One assignment for the students was to initiate and facilitate an educational design for organisational learning called Proactive Review in the organisations where they were employed. The study explores the interplay between the students' learning activities at work and in their master study. By using an online discussion forum on Google groups, they created new ways of initiating and reflecting on learning. We used netnography to select qualitative postings from the online community. Our findings include implications for changing communications from the spoken word to the written word, which lacks spontaneity but supports equality among students in regard to "being heard". Our contribution tore search shows how students changed practices of organisational learning in their organisations of employment.
