This study describes the phenomenon of ba within a computer-mediated communications environment, a lived experience shared by the participants through the join.me application. Data were gathered from online meetings with study participants while they were engaged in the process of developing professional development courses specific to their various areas of expertise. Study results indicated that the essence of experience could be reduced to four themes: equalized power structures, affirmed mutual expertise, learner guided mediation, and negotiated concerns.
