Schome community stats
This page provides a summary of the state of the schome community at different points in time.
For current stats on WikiWorks check out:
Part of the remit of the Aspire Pilot project was to develop a network of people interested in building visions of schome (ie the schome community). Criteria for evaluating the success of this endeavour (ie the health of the schome community) included:
- the number of people who are part of the community
- their level of activity/engagment
- the quality of interaction
The schome community interacts in a number of different ways, including:
- face to face and/or via video conference
- by phone, skype or netmeeting
- by email
- through WikiWorks (both viewing, creating and editing pages)
- through the schome community forum
- through other means, such as Second Life
This summary focusses primarily on items 4 and 5 above (ie WikiWorks and the schome community forum).
