At EENet, people frequently ask us what it takes to build a virtual community of practice (VCoP) where members are actively engaged.

More and more organizations and initiatives are investing time and resources in developing VCoPs to enhance communication and collaboration among relevant stakeholders. Yet, few people know how to make them function actively and effectively.

For this reason, we set out to explore academic literature that would help us identify the factors that both constrain and encourage active participation in VCoPs. Our analysis revealed eight (8) factors to think about when creating new VCoPs or improving existing ones.
