I am a recent joiner of the OLC and really buy into the idea. It is something that I was thinking about myself for a while and something that would be valuable in my work and networks. To have spaces that do what is/was intended with the open learning commons would be great.
Since I joined I noticed that the network is not very active right now and I have been wondering why that is. There seems to have been a little more momentum once upon a time but it seems that the commoning in the OLC spaces has slowed a little. Based on some mattermost conversations there seem to be others that have observed a similar tendency.
I am asking myself the question: do the digital spaces set up for OLC work for the people involved?
IF they DO: what are the main inhibitors to OLC becoming a community of more active contributors?
IF they DON’T: why is the current tech setup not encouraging more active community contribution?
This thread is intended to raise tool issues. Please feel free to start other topics/threads if you think the community vibrancy status has nothing to do with the tools.
I will be sharing this topic in the mattermost space and ask for contributions there.
Again, I am keen to see this working, not keen on leading but very keen to have spaces for active discussions that I can invite people from my networks into for joint exploration and commoning.
Your thoughts are much appreciated.
