Session E105 4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
From Researchers to Ringleaders
David Dillard, Temple University

The Internet's rapid, two-way communication has facilitated direct communication with experts in ways not dreamed of before the computer became part of information retrieval. Discussion groups are an important example of the communication capabilities of the Internet because good discussion groups attract the membership of experts and specialists in their fields. They read the group's messages to keep up with what is being said by other members of the discussion group, but also make valuable comments and offer useful advice to others in the discussion group. The panel's own experiences with the Diversity University Collaboratory, an electronic mailing list, and the Educational CyberPlayGround, an Internet portal, illustrate this revolution of online-research opportunities.

When you need Guidance, Information, Direction, or Opinions ask a RingLeader on our playground they are here to help you. RingLeaders do the difficult instantly, but the impossible might take a few minutes cause they're always playing around. RingLeaders are the Experts and part of the ECP Skills Directory. A prerequisite of any Knowledge Management system should have Knowledge Development as it's base and as your focus. Keeping skills up to date is a major challenge, and knowledge management is an activity relating to the knowledge which as already been developed. Bless our RingLeaders :-)
