Organizational Structure for Mass Collaboration and Learning

Abstract : The rapid emergence of collaborative communities supported by Internet has led to unprecedented waves of novelty in the ways people create and share knowledge. In this framework, the notion of mass collaboration has opened new windows of opportunity for collective learning. Mass collaborative learning is a new paradigm, through which large numbers of people engage in collaborative initiatives to learn from each other and alter the nature of formal education. Even though mass collaboration opens up an apparently limitless field for promoting social inclusion in effective learning, not all aspects, features, and characteristics of this phenomenon such as the organizational structures are quite clear at present. Therefore, this study is conducted to review the organizational structures of 14 real examples of mass collaboration. Through the analysis of the most suitable features of those structures we expect to be able to propose a general organizational structure for mass collaborative learning purpose. It is expected that such organizational structure could help developing a better insight into this field of study.
