“Volunteers from all over the world are helping organizations that serve communities in developing countries — but without leaving their own communities. These online volunteers translate documents, write articles, research data, build web sites, mentor young people, design logos, and engage in many other projects to benefit organizations serving people in the developing world.”
And I would add all the issues related to e-Learning
- Pedagogical design
- Pedagogical coordination
- Content authorship
- Academic management
and everything related to technical backofficing.
All in all, e-volunteering will always, in my opinion, be related to knowledge management and knowledge-related tasks.
