BBC NEWS | Technology | Pull down the walled gardens - 0 views

  • Unlike the global internet, which enables virtually the entire world to connect, social networks have created very large, localised communities with far more limited international interaction.
    • Violeta Cautin
       
      So social networking sites are creating big scale barries ... never thought of that, but makes a lot of sense.

      It seems that these localised communities can be seen as online communities. Can they? What do you think?

    Indeed they are. Facebook is legendary for allowing a lot of users to enter information into Facebook, but not to be able to take it out again. At the same time there's a problem as google can't search Facebook. It will be interesting however, to see how the new Facebook Connect will work out, which is an attempt from Facebook to open up their walled garden - see http://bit.ly/ZKgwj

    @Joao: yes, I definitely think that local communities can be seen as online communities. In fact, according to Wikipedia, here online communities are described as: "Virtual communities depend upon social interaction and exchange between users online. This emphasizes the reciprocity element of the unwritten social contract between community members. Web 2.0 is essentially characterized by virtual communities such as Flickr, Facebook, and Del.icio.us. A similar trend is starting to emerge within businesses where online or virtual communities are taking hold. These communities can be organizational, regional or topical depending on the business." "Organizational, regional or topical" - I think we can add technical to this list. Btw. it seems like wiki use the terms "online" and "virtual" interchangeably. PS. Can anyone teach me how to make comments on Diigo? Why don´t comments automatically follow each other from oldest to newest? Mine seems to all be stuck together no matter what I do.

    Peter, have you installed the Diigo toolbar? If you haven't, do it. With the Diigo toolbar you can make comments, highlight, bookmark sites, add sticky notes, etc.

  • One behaviour in online groups that has been extensively studied is that of the non-participating members, termed the ‘lurkers’ - Etienne Wenger[2] calls them Legitimate Peripheral Participants. Lurkers are widely known to be among the majority of defined members and they have been found to make up over 90% of most online groups. They are perhaps the most important members in view of their potential to contribute to online groups.
    • Illya Arnet
       
      Are lurkers also part of the community or are they standers-by? IF they become part of the ocmmunity only after participating, after what amount of activity would they then be considered part of the community? If they ARE part of the community, what distinguishes them from mere interested on-lookers?
  • online learning communities are grown, not built online learning communities need leaders personal narrative is vital to online learning communities.
  • all you need is love control the environment, not the group lead by example let lurkers lurk

  • The green nodes have a few connections -- usually with prior acquaintances.
  • The core members will stay and build the community. Unfortunately they are in the minority. The core nodes are usually less than 20%
  • To build a vibrant and growing OLC, you need to support natural human behavior, not work against it.

  • The core are analyzable and knowable -- they can be mapped, measured, and molded

Blogs and Community - launching a new paradigm for online community? at The Knowledge Tree - 0 views

  • So my caution to all of us is to never ever mistake the platform for the community. It is what people do with each other using the tools that matters.
    • Violeta Cautin
       
      the community is us
  • The key indicator for us is that community is present when individual and collective identity begins to be expressed; when we care about who said what, not just the what; when relationship is part of the dynamic and links are no longer the only currency of exchange (Packwood 2005).
  • Because most blog communities are not bounded by a technological wall and have very permeable boundaries, they can grow far beyond the ability of a single individual to keep track of his or her network.

My hopes and concerns regarding FOC08 « Phefland's Blog on FOC08 - 0 views

  • I find this fascinating. What is it about the online communities that makes them different than the offline communities? Why is is that companies have so many problems in their communication with online communities? These are some of the aspects I am interested in researching throughout this course…
    • Violeta Cautin
       
      Not much of a fan of the enterprise world, and not really happy to let companies now how online communities behave. I imagine funding will be there, and I think it would be interesting to know the answers to those questions.

Facilitating online communities « Illya's EVO blogfolio - 0 views

  • I’ve been a part of an extremely nurturing online community, one filled with role models, many probably out of intuition rather than theory. So I do believe that some may have a certain talent for it, just as some have a talent for teaching, coaching etc.

Effective Online Facilitation - 0 views

  • Online teaching is moving from an emphasis on web content to a more interactive structure that recognises the social and interactive elements of knowledge construction, and to pedagogical approaches that enable student-centred (e.g. problem-based, inquiry-based, discovery, and authentic learning) which are found to be extremely effective for online learning
  • Effective online facilitation should engage, guide and motivate learners, and provide a safe and conducive environment for learning and communication exchange for all learners regardless of their prior experience and predisposition or otherwise towards online learning technologies.
  • it requires special skills by the facilitator to progress conversations from trivial surface level discussion and social exchange to deeper level engagement

    Looks like what we have in FOC08! I think many people were attracted by others. THis was my case, I was informed by a friend in one of my communities and mentioned it to others in another, the result being several more faces (or blogs) added to the course.

Facilitating Online Communities: Community & Technology - 0 views

  • I'm a tech-lover myself, and absolutely revel in this kind of technological exploration and comparison, but I've found it's helpful to hold these conversations within a separate thread so they don't dominate the more community-oriented conversation, which they otherwise tend to do.

      Experience is speaking
  • I didn't push back, bit I'm not at all sure I agreed with Bron. Imagine a bunch of art students arriving at a class. They need oil paints, canvas, sharpened brushes, pencils, thinners etc.

      He's got a point but Amy didn't say that we should deny talking about technological issues, she just said we should separate the channels.
