Abstract: SAPO campus is an institutionally supported platform of web-based services aimed for use in educational contexts. This platform, resulting from a research partnership between the University of Aveiro (Portugal) and SAPO, an information and technology Portuguese company, aims to promote collaboration and sharing between its users and the development of students' personal learning environments primarily through the interaction with the broader learning community. Starting with a structural review of some theoretical constructs, our aim is to contribute for the reflection and the discussion about the importance of collaboration, motivation and knowledge sharing in promoting creativity and learning opportunities, specifically in the context of the SAPO campus platform.

Keywords: collaborative learning; creativity; PLEs; personal learning environments; SAPO campus; motivation; virtual communities; collaboration; technology-enhanced learning; social networks; knowledge sharing; web-based services; e-learning; electronic learning.
