Use of Wikis as Compared to Other Tools

Tony Karrer

For an upcoming panel session that will be looking at where eLearning is going, I was trying to get a ballpark sense of how much eLearning is being done with various tools as an indicator of where we stand in terms of adoption of eLearning 1.0, One thing I would say is that I would expect that we'll see adoption of Wiki tools a lot more - but many of the uses will be more as a replacement of web page creation than as a eLearning 2.0

If these negative trends continue and a new “joint” business model is not adopted wholesale, the promise that sparked IRTPA is in danger of being unrealized. This is modified MediaWiki software and shown in the edit history mode.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Existing Adoption At the very start I asked the audience for examples of where they were currently using these tools as part of learning solutions. I discussed the fact that there was a common Adoption Pattern that went from personal adoption to work groups to organization. So while the session focused on organizational adoption, it likely was the case that you should look for targeted adoption opportunities.
