Patterns of online communities from Indigitous

Below is a video recording of the Session.

About the Session:

On September 23, Bret Staudt Willet will show various patterns associated with online communities, including user engagement (why we shouldn’t call silent users “lurkers”), affinity spaces (why this might be a more helpful framework than “communities”), and growth (why dandelions might be the most awesome plants ever).  Bret will also describe the approach InterVarsity has decided to take toward ministry in digital spaces and will share stories of what they’re learning about gaming ministry.

About Bret:
