Abstract
Access extension and quality improvement in education is an issue that must be addressed immediately. The government makes every endeavor to do its best, but the results are not optimal because it faced several obstacles, such as geographical, social economic and local government revenue differences. One solution that has been developed is a website named online teacher community which can facilitate the process of sharing information on the instruction. This research aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of online teacher community website. The results showed that online teacher community website could act as a medium of learning for sharing information among the teachers and become an effective medium of learning for the students. This medium could build communication link among teachers not only in one district/city, but also across districts/cities and even across the provinces. In addition, the medium could be used as a medium for school' self-evaluation so the schools could compare themselves with other schools in the quality of the instruction. Such mechanisms are expected to be able to encourage the extension of access and quality improvement in education.
