PLEI Connect: Creating an Online Community of Practice

It seems almost paradoxical, but online communities require a lot of offline work. Although they exist in virtual space, digital communities are created and maintained through the hard real-world work of people like Brenda Rose, project manager for PLEI Connect, an interactive online public legal education (PLE) website. Rose works at Courthouse Libraries BC, one of four partners along with PovNet, Éducaloi, and CLEO , who have made PLEI (pronounced ‘plea’) Connect a reality.
