15 Communities of Practice (CoP) are: groups of people who share a concern, a set of problems, or a passion about a topic, and who deepen their knowledge and expertise in this area by interacting on an on-going basis (Wenger, McDermott, & Snyder, 2002, p.4). Virtual Communities of Practice (VCoP), without excluding F2F rely primarily on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to connect their members What is a Virtual Community?
