Many of us who run e-communities have paths which cross frequently across the blogosphere, twitterverse; on Facebook, in Nings on LinkedIn, however, we very rarely get the opportunity to sit down face-to-face
and say "Hey, xyz works really well in my community but you know, I tried abc - - which I saw mnopq do well, but oddly enough it didn't for us..
Oh you did fgh instead?
That's a great concept..."
As part of my preparation for the presentation/swap-shop I'll be giving at Harrogate in April, this new series on my blog will be exploring various factors inherent in working within online communities:
# Types of Online platforms
# Privacy issues
# Mission statements, objectives & purpose
# Group rules and maintaining protocol
# Group identity
# Individual identity
# Life cycles of Groups
# Collaboration, invention and working together
# Differences in working with learners vs educators
# Tribes and money
Please come along and add your 2c, nickels, dimes and half-dollars - in short, do share your wisdom!
Thanks muchly in advance :-))
