Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tony Karrer

I’m involved in several discussions around how to use Wikis as part of learning solutions. So, of course, I went to eLearning Learning and I looked at Wiki , Collaborative Learning with Wikis , Wikis and eLearning 2.0 , Wikis Corporate eLearning , Social Learning with Wikis , Wiki Security and a few others. Here’s some of what I found: Why a Wiki? I wanted to collect a few resources around this topic for use in these discussions.

Wiki 161

Tony Karrer

In this post, Dave unfortunately lumps together blogs, wikis, mashups, rss feed together (probably because eLearning 2.0 However, I think the answer about adoption rates is going to be quite different for these things with Wikis and Mashups being adopted at a very high rate. RSS and Blogs have much slower adoption. We will dump Dreamweaver and RoboInfo in favor of Wikis.

Tools Used

Clark Quinn

Interestingly RSS readership for "weekly" only adds up to 41%. There's clearly a gap here around the use of RSS readers. Twitter adoption is higher than I would have thought. Some things that jumped out at me: Clearly Education is ahead of Corporate adoption, otherwise the numbers are fairly well aligned. Then to compare with adoption by people in Government. Government is much more like Education in adoption than Corporations.

On the Indieweb

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Instead, at the beginning of blogging, another model was adopted by the (then) startup blog companies, and these were more in the model of personal diary entries. I'm going to take Daniel Goldsmith's excellent post Praxis and the Indieweb as a point of departure for this post.

We went live with Jam in late summer of 2013, and thus far I’d say we are relatively satisfied with what it can do, and where we’re at as an organization in terms of adoption and usage.

Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

Geoffrey Moore’s analogy of “ crossing the chasm ” is that any new technology is quickly adopted by innovators and early adopters, but there is a chasm to cross in order to get the more pragmatic majority to adopt the new technology. My consulting work is mostly bridging the chasm: I am an early adopter myself, and use this experience to work with the early pragmatic majority.
