Building cnline community

We all understand that building a virtual community is the most
important part of all our Internet activities. I tried it myself
without any readings first. Then I took a short online course at the
ZDU. It gave me some new ideas.
Having gone through that exercise a number of times, I believe that I
came up (?) with some ideas that drive a Virtual Community potential.
When I plan a new online community activity, first I try to estimate
the following:

1. Size of potential community (students, parents, teachers, all
together)
2. Relative value of being on-line (realistic number if minutes
daily,
weekly, monthly)
3. Value of being a community (getting information, online support,
and so on)
4. Functionality of a community (anything that will serve the needs
of
users representing a specific interests of the community such as
college
acceptance policies, grading system,
educational goals)
..Please add your ideas to this list....
