Networking and cooperation

A Wiki is about networking and an excellent tool to promote cooperation among people.

  • Thematic networks are established very easy between pages and websites related to the issue of concern. People cooperating temporarily on an issue or project of common interest together, like for instance in the well known Wikipedia.
  • People networks are easily formed whilst working on the issue of common concern using this communication tool, like e.g. within the Comenius:Programme.
