Yesterday a little bird told me that KM conference and event heavyweight Ark Group is shutting down its Asian operations. And last week I attended KMAP 2006 in Hong Kong, organised by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (disclosure: I teach for them) the City University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Knowledge Management Society.

Technology: the Dgroups success story

Joitske Hulsebosch

It made me think again about the success of Dgroups "the starting point for fostering groups and communities in international development " and how hard it is to pinpoint the critical success factors and hence to replicate this success. I guess this may be true for most groups.

Communities, Networks and Groups

Jenny Connected

But perhaps of interest to those who follow discussions about the differences between groups and network s in relation to connectivism, will be the introductory section (pages 9-13) where the authors discuss their understanding of the terms ‘community’ and ‘network’ – how these are similar, different, overlap. A new article by Etienne Wenger, Beverley Trayner and Martin de Laat has just been linked to on Etienne’s Facebook page. Wenger, E., Trayner, B. & & de Laat, M. 2011).

Patience as a new cultural dimension?

Joitske Hulsebosch

Which is different from the way I mostly look at some of these tools, as supporting (small) groups in their communication and learning efforts. Because of the longer attachment to one domain and with a (growing) group, we are able create more exchanges which build on each other

Practical example: the value of the Poverty Analysis Community for the World Bank

Communities of practice: grounded experiences

I think groups that have a lot of joint projects may move faster towards a community of practice with common practices, for me a sign of a 'strong' CoP. So we we get into the discussion of what is a group and what is a community of practice.
