  • 14. Open Vs Closed
    • Open communities:
      • Leverage the power of the network
      • Need more monitoring and moderation
    • Closed communities:
      • Difficult to grow
      • Less need for monitoring and moderation
  • 15. Choose the Technology
    • Run off your own server:
      • Vbulletin, phpBB, Invision Power Board
    • Hosted communities:
      • Ning, Wikispaces, Google Groups
  • 16. Running your own server
    • Expensive
    • Need to have dedicated server management team (24/7/365)
    • May need more than one server
    • More customisable
  • 17. Hosted service
    • Ning, Wikispaces, Google Groups
    • Lots of different types of service
    • Ning seems to be best for building communities
    • No need for server management (or any knowledge of servers at all!)
    • Not so customisable
    • Ownership?
  • 18. Managing a community
    • Online communities are composed of real people!
    • Need to foster a sense of community spirit with rules for what is an isn’t acceptable
    • Keep to the forum rules (no exceptions)
    • Recruit moderators from within the community
    • Moderators should be calm, rational people!
  • 19. Example Problems
    • Users arguing with each other
    • Moderators disagreeing about a course of action
    • Copyrighted material posted
    • Libellous material posted
    • Key is consistency and hard work
  • 20. Growth / Promotion
    • Open communities grow faster
    • Search engines need to be able to index
    • Advertising helps kick-start things
    • Welcome new members
    • Recruit moderators early
  • 21. Potential for Online Communities
    • Answer questions from other users
    • Contribute to MCQ bank
    • Contribute Videos or other learning objects
    • Rate, tag and comment on learning objects
  • 22. Trends
    • Hosted Services
    • Mash-ups
    • Integration (e.g log-in)
