Conference Wiki Examples

Tony Karrer

Someone asked me for an example of a conference using a Wiki both for organizers during planning, evaluating proposed sessions, etc. Likely the Wiki would be much better for something larger. and for attendees with session pages, participant lists, that kind of stuff.

Wikis - Public vs. Controlled - Why There's No eLearning Wiki

Tony Karrer

received an email asking me if I knew of any Wikis that provided information on eLearning concepts. there's not really a place where you can find a Wiki that covers eLearning concepts. However, Wikipedia has some issues (as does any public Wiki) as a place for defining these terms. Update Sept. Does that make sense? Sheesh.

Doc Searls

Purpose-centric activities don’t do away with the idea that Web sites are things that people and organizations own and control. What are we to make of Sidewiki ? Is it, as Phil Windley says , a way to build the purpose-centric Web ? Or is it, as Mike Arrington suggests , the latest way to “deface&# websites? Next is Web 2.0.

Wiki Traffic - What Gets Visited on Wikipedia

Tony Karrer

This also suggests something about using Wikis for content that we create. While our workers/learners/users will likely use the content sometimes in the reference look-up, it is likely that they will find the content because of it being appropriately indexed both locally (by the Wiki) and within the intranet/extranet/web search engines.

How Wikipedia Works and Wikis in the Enterprise - HBS

Tony Karrer

At the bottom of the article, the author interviews Andrew about the use of Wikis in the enterprise. But an encyclopedia is only one of the things you can build with wiki technology.

Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Tony Karrer

For Wiki-like capabilities, it likely is fine for an LMS to provide these and for learning organizations to use them. So no problem if their Wiki is tied to the LMS. These are going to be real challenges for learning organizations and trainers moving forward. Janet juxtaposes the recent inclusion of eLearning 2.0
