illustrates practical experience in development of an online community
and connection of several communities into one. Since 1996 a group
of authors from Slavonski Brod has been developing the resource
network called "SBOnLine".
of our work are visible in web portals of Brodsko-posavska county
and a network of complementary online resources, from the radio
station, newspapers, schools, to city and county official web
was communication of people originating from this area by using
the Internet (located in Croatia or around the world).
At the beginning,
the communication with people originating from Brod consisted
of directory services, web publication and news/information broadcasting.
Later, other services emerged: mailing lists, boards, chat and
similar. Through the development of multi-user online tools for
content publishing, the community became interactive. Today, there
is an increasing number of authors and associates from all around
the world participating in the content production.
with similar projects from Slavonia, like "Pozega online"
"Osijek online" during 2001, a community of online communities
called "Putokazi ravnice" was born. Modules of the online
community are using integrated online resources, thus enabling
the remote cooperation of the individuals and teams from all communities.
