If used effectively, computer supported learning environments (CSLE's) can be extremely useful communication and learning tools for both teachers and students. A template of an online community for the Lester B. Pearson School Boards computer supported learning environment, the Portal was created based on researched models. Secondary teachers at Riverdale High School in Pierrefonds, Quebec, were trained on the benefits and usages of the template so that they could integrate the design in their own curriculum. Teachers' attitudes and perceptions were examined prior to and after the training session. The template was tested out for a school year and suggestions for improvement of the design and training materials were documented. One of the teachers from the workshop was provided with follow-up training sessions where her perceptions, attitudes and feedback were examined. The researcher also actively participated in testing the template throughout the year in hopes of improving future template models and implementation strategies of the training itself
