This paper describes a system that matches learning network users with complementary content expertise. It works through the formation of so called ad hoc, transient communities. They are communities that (1) exist for a limited period of time, (2) specifically to fulfill the goal of knowledge sharing. This system supports the social embedding of learners in the Learning Network and stimulates learners to socially interact by sharing knowledge.
