The CoAKTinG project aims to advance the state of the art in ollaborative mediated spaces for the Semantic Grid. This paper presents an overview of the hypertext and knowledge based tools which have been deployed to augment existing ollaborative environments, and the ontology which is used to exchange structure, promote enhanced process racking, and aid navigation of resources before, after, and while a collaboration occurs. While the primary ocus of the project has been supporting e-Science, this paper also explores the similarities and pplication of CoAKTinG technologies as part of a human-centred design approach to e-Learning.
