Brief Description of the Collaboratory :


The Community Knowledge Collaboratory seems to be a prototype for a site that seeks to enhance "community knowledge through global collaboration". The site mainly provides information and resources pertaining to access to information issues and the role ICTs play in developing nations. The main bulk of the information is found in the case studies and best practices links.

The collaboratory also provides tools to enable like-minded individuals to communicate and share knowledge with each other.
