Beginning with the origins, Oycib means in Mayan language "the place of honey" and is an infrastructure for collaboration and digital research, based in the theories about e-Research and collective intelligence.

With Oycib infrastructure, we propose a model for the analysis of the digital practices and collaboration profiles for the development of social learning, the context awareness and finally the collective intelligence.

The infrastructure design and the profiles proposed here, are based on historical studies about social organization glyphs in Mayan culture made by Montgomery (2002) and Calvin (2012).

Initially we worked with four profiles, but we can find others depending of the context online/offline and the characteristics of the organization. Thus it's important to mention that each profile is found based on the e-Xploración model and are the qualitative and quantitative interpretation of the collaborative practices. In this way, we propose methods based on Social Network Analysis for the learning and knowledge management. Thus, the network in Oycib is called "Kaab" (sky or network in Mayan Lenguage). In the "Kaab" we present the visualization of the subjects and objects, such as persons, forums, blogs, files, groups and all the interactions among them. Additionally, each profile and their interactions is presented.

... you can interact with "Kaab" here.
