Motivation Model in Community-Built System

  • Przemysław Różewski
  • Emma Kusztina


Every person can be characterized by motivation. Therefore, a collective motivation model of users of an information system can be applied for increasing its overall efficiency and productivity. In this chapter, the motivation model for an environment of community-built system is proposed. The model’s objective is to maintain control of social and economic systems. All of the psychological, cognitive, and social aspects of the community-built system have been incorporated into the model. Having introduced an analysis of the networked nature of knowledge, an ontological model for knowledge representation in community-built system is formulated. Following that, the main features of a computer-supported collaboration process are discussed to establish the environment of a community-built system. The motivation model is located within the environment and leverages the qualities of the ontological model.
