edu1world.org was conceived as a professional collaboration network for higher education technology practitioners and providers, administrative professionals, vendors, associations, and faculty who are interested in and who work with technology. The edu1world.org site is made up of virtual communities of practice where members from around the world connect, collaborate, communicate, and access the information they need to succeed.
Powered by HiveSocial social business software from Enterprise Hive, edu1world launched in 2008.
Interest in edu1world was instantaneous, and within a few years, the edu1world community was joined by many other communities including Ellucian, which formed a community called The Commons, an online community to help open discussion and collaboration by connecting customers and employees around the world.
As a Software-as-a-Service, edu1world.org is continually monitored and upgraded to newer versions with more functionality. edu1world offers blogs, wikis, news, research, and a career center where members can post jobs and their resumes.
edu1world now has more than 30,000 members and is a collection of growing communities where members can connect, collaborate, share and access the information they need in order to improve individual performance and effectiveness in their work.
