Abstract

With the extensive expansion of IT in the learning, business and home environments it is becoming apparent that there is considerable opportunity for increasing collaborative interaction if a framework is developed to coordinate the activities of the individuals across the different sectors. As a possible way of achieving this objective we present the online Community of Practice (CoP) developed and presently being trialled at the Institute for Work Based Learning (IWBL), Middlesex University. In this paper, we describe our approach for developing and utilising of this Community of Practice. Through case studies we will give two ways in which it is being currently applied. We will define what we have presently achieved and go on to outline future developments.
