The Ontological Group Profiling for Virtual Communities of Practice Framework

Zeti Darleena Eri, Rusli Abdullah, Marzanah A. Jabar, and Masrah Azrifah A. Murad
Abstract—This paperpresents a study that seeks to investigate the current state of Virtual Communities of Practice (VCoP). It aims to provide a strategy to manage research communities’ group profiling using ontology in the field of Knowledge Management (KM). Within the research communities of academics researchers, they consist of groups of individuals that have their own competencies and experiences. Managing these groups of people is not an easy task since most of the profiles are kept both static and individually. Many software development projects ignore the fact that people can be in the form of groups that share practices, such as CoP, with participation and interaction playing an active role in generating group profiles. The objective of the paper is to define and validate the ontoGPVCoP framework. Finally, the framework that the study proposes will be used as both a guidance and example of a potential similar development in any institution of higher learning in Malaysia.

Index Terms—Group profiling, VCoP, ontology, KM strategy, research communities.
