Abstract: This paper addresses the challenge of enhancing social interaction through value-added connections among online community members engaged in knowledge exchange. We report on our exploration of three types of connection dynamics: (1) features enabling network members to visualize and browse through relationship networks, (2) intelligent agents and (3) innovative game dynamics aimed at stimulating the identification and establishment of value-adding connections between users and knowledge assets, individuals, groups, and communities. We describe here how such dynamics could be embedded in lifelong competence development networks.
