Online Communities – The search

27 Aug

Hmm, how does one start looking for online communities?

Well, I thought, if it’s going to take up a substantial amount of my waking hours to participate in online communities, then they have to be highly relevant, interesting, beneficial and ‘chilled’. By ‘chilled’ I mean informal, a community that doesn’t require a ‘legal contract’ to join or commit to.

I’ve come across quite a few in my online travels, and every now and then I have a look, ‘lurk around’, and sometimes even participate.

Here’s a list of some of those communities, according to the Twitter hashtags (Why Twitter? I like the feeling of flying like a free bird when I’m online :-))

Here’re my most frequently-visited list of #hashtags:

Mostly to do with learning, in general:

#edtech

#edchat

#elearning

#edchatnz

#ozedchat

 

Mostly to do with virtual worlds:

#secondlife

#vwwg

#vlenz

#virtualworlds

 

Mostly to do with computing & technology:
