"E-teacher community competition” (abbreviated as ETCC) had been held by the Educational Bureau of Hualien County (abbreviated as EBHC) consecutively for three years since 2008. EBHC, located in the eastern part of Taiwan, plays important roles in promoting school teachers' professional development. ETCC ran for 13 weeks from February to May. EBHC invited five experts to set up and revise rules, regulations, and grading criteria to guide the e-teacher teams to design, develop and implement a theme-based course. Each e-teacher team saved and presented the processes and their final products over a unique web-site assigned. The e-teacher team kept all final products in a website that can be accessed by all school teachers in Hualien. In 2010, EBHC held a post-ETCC workshop and invited the winning teams of ETCC to share their experiences and made suggestions for future improvement. This paper analyzed how the EBHC helped to initiate the e-teacher community to be a primitive learning organization. We suggested some strategies to see if the e-teacher community can be further transformed to be an authentic learning organization.
