So, we briefly detailed ways to "incent" participation last time. Getting people to participate is hard enough but what about getting the RIGHT people to participate?
Here is the challenge. Lots of things cause a community to fail or never really grow to begin with. Credibility is the key and correct content is your reputation.
A community that provides the WRONG answers to the questions posted will fizzle more quickly than can be imagined.
Harnessing the power of a true Learning 2.0 community requires not only getting bodies in the door, but it's getting the right people involved to answer the questions they should answer.
This just isn't easy to do.
I'll be brining a guest blogger in next time to explore ways to avoid this, but for now, lets get some conversation going.
So the challenge is this, how do I get the right people answering the questions my employees/students/community members are posting?
