dc.description.abstractFinding appropriate tools and platforms to maintain and manage their activities is a major challenge for communities of practice (CoPs). We reviewed in this research several platforms used by CoPs from several backgrounds (IT, education, social activities, etc.) in order to identify common tools that might help in proposing guidelines for dedicated CoPs' platforms. We classified the reviewed platforms into four main categories: basic tools (forums), simple platforms (content management systems), community-oriented platforms (portals) and proprietary platforms (Youmedia, iwlearn). Indeed, we identified four main limitations of the reviewed platforms namely: single authentication to the platform, common repository of resources and global search, notification and performing activities. Consequently, we discussed and justified adopting a pivot technology for implementing CoPs' platform (widget technology). Additionally, we justified the necessity in providing interoperability of embedded tools for performing activities. Finally, a proposed logical structure of the dedicated platform for CoPs was discussed then justified. © 2017 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.en_US
