|Abstract:||Online educational communities provide spaces for teachers to find resources, create instructional activities, and share these activities with others. Engagement with such online communities can be affected by how participants were initially recruited and supported. But what happens when these support and dissemination are removed? This study investigates the evolution of user behaviors after dissemination activities are completed. The results suggest that once dissemination activities ended, users' consumer behaviors continued while their contributor behaviors decreased.|
