The study explores the readiness and acceptance in using the cloud-based community as a platform for continuous professional development (CPD) among teachers of remote areas from thirteen regencies in Central Kalimantan. The survey involves one hundred fifty teachers of English and Social Science who joined the Teachers’ Certification Program 2017, organized by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia in collaboration with the University of Malang (UM) and the University of Palangka Raya (UPR).This group of teachers respond to the questionnaire consisting ten items as a reflection of the readiness and acceptance in using Web-Community for developing CPD. Descriptive analysis with the percentage was done to reveal the level of readiness and acceptance in using web-community among this group. The results reveal, despite the fact that the low and the lack of internet access in isolated areas is the significant point causes the cloud-based communication runs unwell, however all respondents are receptive towards Web-community. In addition, the web applications they use most frequently to communicate for developing CPD are WhatsApp, Facebook, and E-mail. This indicates that the teachers of English and Social Science of remote areas of Central Kalimantan are ready to develop the CPD using the cloud-based communication.
