Co-operation for Networks

Harold Jarche, Weblog, Jun 01, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Harold Jarche finds support for my proposal that 'cooperation' rather than 'collaboration' is more appropriate for descriptions of network-based practice. "Jerome Delacroix provides another confirmatory post on "co-operation" as the suitable term for what we do in networks [in French]. Jerome explains why his site is called Cooperatique and not Collaboratique - collaboration happens around some kind of plan or structure, while co-operation presumes the freedom of individuals to join and participate." And some people remember that this is not my first pass at this issue: "The question is not whether we can get students to collaborate online - the question is whether we should."
