Valorisation of Community Information Systems

Thesis type
  • Master
Status Open
The valorisation of social capital is the increase in the value of social capital assets through the application of value-forming labour in community information systems. Examples of such valorisation is the increase of job offers through the contributions to an open-source software repository like github or the increase of friendship requests on social networking sites through the completion of a user profile. Community Information Systems are information systems for professional communities of practice that are using Web platforms to organize their work and their learning processes. In this thesis we research existing scientific and practical approaches valorisation of information systems in organizational and non-organizational contexts. Based on this analysis we conceptualize a valorisation framework for community information systems. The realization is based on an open-source peer-to-peer community system called las2peer ( as RESTFul Web services. The application area is the valorisation of collaborative working and learning environments. The master student should have very good programming skills and interests in business management topics.
