George Roberts :: Blog :: What is needed for a community to function

November 22, 2008

ELESIG is a community of researchers that started with a small group of universities, which grew out of eLearning Pathfinding. Elesig has identified a number of functions that distributed (online) group/community members need to fulfill. I adapted these from Rhona Sharpe's presentation to Brookes eL@B on 20/11/2008. The slides may be forthcoming.
Online Community functions:
  • Welcome new members
  • Share resources
  • Discuss work in online environments
  • Facilitate online discussions
  • Present work at online events
  • Provide feedback on work and presentations
  • Host online events (webinars)
  • Summarise discussions
  • Collaborate on papers for publication
  • Help with access to facilities
  • Lead online group
  • Join core team
