Abstract: This paper addresses the challenge of enhancing social interaction through value-adding connections among the online members of Learning Networks. We report on our exploration of three types of connection dynamics: (1) features enabling network member to visualize and browse through relationship networks, (2) intelligent agents and (3) game dynamics aimed at stimulating the identification and establishment of value-adding connections between people and other people, groups, knowledge assets or relevant community dynamics. We describe here how such dynamics could be embedded in Lifelong Competence Development Networks.
