The incorporation and use of the Internet in classrooms is often viewed as an overwhelming task. One approach is to build virtual knowledge communities where faculty can both contribute, and receive mentoring and help. This virtual knowledge community, to play out the analogy, can contain subdivisions (e.g., Science, Literature, etc.) with each subdivision containing "houses" (e.g., Biology, Poetry, etc.). Individual faculty can participate in the "house" with which they are most closely associated and still benefit from other "houses" in their subdivision. Members of a subdivision can also collaborate across the community. This paper provides an overview of the virtual community building process. Both intra and inter-disciplinary collaboration potential are highlighted.
