Communities in Cyberspace

Came across the draft article of introduction to the book, Communities in Cyberspace by Peter Kollock and Marc Smith of University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). It gives a good overview of the implications of online interactions in building virtual communities in light of four key concepts: (1) identity, (2) social order and control, (3) community structure and dynamics, and (4) collective action. This final article appeared in the book "Communities in Cyberspace" (1999, London:Routledge).

  1. Hi Maita, I would just like to inquire if you provide consultancy services with regards to SCORM. I understand that you have a lot of experience regarding SCORM. If you are interested, please email me at
    jepylu_at_gmail_dot_com.

  2. Hi, Jeff.

    Thank you for you for visiting my blog and your e-mail.

    I don’t provide consultancy services for SCORM, sorry. I am more of an
    online community facilitator and researcher.

    However, if you are interested, would you like me to open up your inquiry to
    my PeLs group members, a number of who are into SCORM consultancy?
