"A community of practice (CoP) is, according to cognitive anthropologists Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger, a group of people who share an interest, a craft, and/or a profession.

Over the last year or so, the term communities of practice has entered the social media buzzword lexicon along with virtual collaboration, engagement, platforms, and Enterprise 2.0. Senior leaders want to establish them, new employees are being told to join them, and middle managers are being told to support them, but what, exactly are they?" Steve Radick

"Experiential learning using open source is fraught with opportunities for disaster.

Open source is unfamiliar ground for professors. Not the software, which is well-known at this point. But professors aren't accustomed to open development. They treat open source projects like busy work or an easy way to assign homework. Participating in FOSS projects takes work and time, maybe even six months, which is a big commitment for someone who wants to use it in a one-semester course. A student being sent in to a project without involvement from a professor is a recipe for failure."
