The KLIOS virtual community is meant as a social network aiming to provide a way for researchers to create and populate their online profiles and share their work with others.
It can be viewed as two distinctive and interacting networks. The first one is a network of persons, including authors, potential collaborators and final users of learning objects (students,teachers, others researchers, the general public, etc.). The second is a network of published learning resources. Registered individuals can interact with each other via their personal blogs, declare friends and create their own interest groups.
The learning resources themselves create an equivalent social network with interactions with other learning resources as well as with persons.
