In order to realize specific goals on informal learning, knowledge management and professional identity reform and development, more and more people, groups and organizations are looking to develop Internet-mediated communities of practice (IMCoP). Harnessing the perceived values of communities across educational or business context requires well-designed settings and great efforts on cultivation to achieve a sustainable level of functionality, communality, collaboration and knowledge sharing. Our work aims at categorizing specific critical elements of the IMCoP via meta-analysis and synthesis of related literature focusing on structural characteristics, motivators, success factors and barriers.
