Abstract

This project, which performed research on web based academic resources, revolved around the focus question "how does one utilize web-based communication media in order to facilitate the self-perpetuating exchange of knowledge in the academic engineering community?". It examined the social implications of self-sustaining web-based resources, and found that any new web resource needs to fill a previously vacant niche in order to gather the user-base required to be self-sustaining.
