    1. 1. Creating Community with Web 2.0 Tools  
    2. 2. Objectives <ul><li>Participants will… </li></ul><ul><li>Understand how they can benefit from communities and groups </li></ul><ul><li>Learn to use Web 2.0 tools to build a sense of community </li></ul><ul><li>Discuss ways to provide value to staff, faculty, students, and alumni </li></ul>
    3. 3. What is a community? <ul><li>According to Wikipedia: </li></ul><ul><li>In biological terms, a community is a group of interacting organisms sharing a populated environment. In human communities, intent, belief, resources, preferences, needs, risks, and a number of other conditions may be present and common, affecting the identity of the participants and their degree of cohesiveness. </li></ul><ul><li>The word &quot;community&quot; is derived from the Old French communité which is derived from the Latin communitas ( cum , &quot;with/together&quot; + munus , &quot;gift&quot;), a broad term for fellowship or organized society. </li></ul>
    4. 4. In sociology, the concept of community has led to significant debate, and sociologists are yet to reach agreement on a definition of the term. There were ninety-four discrete definitions of the term by the mid-1950’s.
    5. 5. Traditionally a &quot;community&quot; has been defined as a group of interacting people living in a common location. The word is often used to refer to a group that is organized around common values and is attributed with social cohesion within a shared geographical location, generally in social units larger than a household.
    6. 6. Since the advent of the Internet, the concept of community no longer has geographical limitations, as people can now virtually gather in an online community and share common interests regardless of physical location. Edvance360 proposes that the sense of community is now based on value provided and shared.
    7. 7. Social Networks/Online Communities
    8. 8. How to Create Community: <ul><li>Provide VALUE </li></ul><ul><li>Be where people already are </li></ul><ul><li>Stay RELEVANT to member’s lives </li></ul><ul><li>Provide members with way to contribute </li></ul><ul><li>Make it EASY and CONVENIENT! </li></ul>
    9. 10. <ul><li>“ I think a ‘thank you’ and a ‘congratulations’ is in order, to the faculty and administrators of the school for bringing us Edvance360. I, like everyone, had my doubts about a new LMS, but what an easy to navigate system Edvance360 is! Not only does it give us access to important school resources like lessons and grades, but there's a bit of social media thrown in for good measure making it a site I want to access rather than just need to access. Gone are the days of labs in which chatter-box students would talk loudly and incessantly, making me wonder ‘Couldn't I study this better from home?’ Well yes, thank you, now I can.” </li></ul><ul><li> Vladimir Cassel, a student at Digital Media Arts College </li></ul>
