Managing online learning communities


Thanks to Alex Morrice for sharing this video via Twitter. It’s important to us generally as people who champion digital collaboration, online learning and communication inside our organisations but also to us as SPSDG. Fantasic stuff about connectedness, learning together, social learning communities. That communities die because they don’t have purpose and passion, online communities are transient and community management is a skill!

It also introduces a new term to describe people who poopoo social media: CAVES- colleagues against virtually everything- while reminding us that working online and using social media are not for everyone and that must be respected.

Well worth a watch or listen if you’re managing any kind of online community or trying to build activity in an online community. Excellent points and tips.
