Abstract

We are currently building a content authoring system, and we present in this paper some preliminary ideas based on which the system is being developed. The proposed system takes advantages of key aspects that made online content platforms succeed (such as Wikipedia). These aspects, such as immediacy of positive outcome, are then combined with social motivators and social organization enablers via a digital social networking framework. The resulting environment enables, encourages and rewards authoring of higher quality content in academic institutions.
