Description

An online university facilitates the interaction of faculty and the relationship they develop with each other in virtual Communities of Practice (vCoP). One of the unique features of vCoP is that not all participants have to be actively contributing but nevertheless, all participants can benefit from the accumulated knowledge and experience. However, due to the un-moderated nature of vCoP, it isn’t guaranteed that only valid and credible information is being shared.
