What makes a particular technology for teaching, learning, or knowledge development "fit" a social or organizational context—such as a workplace, school, or university?

I think you have to look at the members of the organization first and determine their needs and ability to access information online. Based on the groups ability you may have to design a system that is basic and accessible for those with little technical skills.

As a future learning designer, I believe there are several technologies that should be considered for developing social/organizational context. For example if a community is educational based then a technology like a Learning Management System (LMS) maybe considered. If the group is corporate based then a Content Management System (CMS) maybe appropriate. Close attention should be paid when looks at the group, to best determine technological needs.
