SharePoint is many things, but it misses the critical element of social media which is networked connection between people and ideas, easy discoverability, makes visible and allows people to act on weak ties, and support for other network-like interactions rather than closed group performance.

Tom Vander Wall Nails My Sharepoint Experience

For a number of years I have cringed every time one of my clients tells me that have or are planning to deploy Microsoft SharePoint as a collaborative platform. My focus is on what people DO with these tools, and very often I’ve seen people struggle with SharePoint.

Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS) for Managing Course Assets

Tony Karrer

They have Articulate courses, classroom courses, SharePoint sites, etc. And they currently manage all of this using what I’ve seen at a lot of companies: network drives, naming conventions, some SharePoint. They also handle asset management, but I really have not been seeing the kind of large scale adoption of LCMS products for that purpose. But I’ve seen organizations cobble together solutions using SharePoint more than I’ve seen LCMS solutions.

Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tony Karrer

I’m involved in several discussions around how to use Wikis as part of learning solutions. I wanted to collect a few resources around this topic for use in these discussions. 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?

He also said that adoption of social media in urban areas was now extremely high and “running out of hours and people.”. Beyond Sharepoint…lies the next wave of social opportunity.

A Review of SAP Jam

Dan Pontefract

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. Bi-lateral communication/connectivity between SharePoint and Jam.

Social Learning Tools Should Not be Separate from Enterprise 2.0

Tony Karrer

This could be: SharePoint, Yammer, Confluence, etc. If an organization has SharePoint and InGenius, my preference would be that social interaction occurs in SharePoint. InGenius should integrate into SharePoint. Adoption - What's the PU?

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

What are the most important methods to adopt in addition to the tools? But I'm worried, because while I just got through writing about my concern in Using SharePoint that learning organizations seemed to be making the same mistake of Not Preparing Workers for Web 2.0. Setting up a SharePoint for a community or work team is very different from teaching them about Personal Learning. Slow and steady - adopt practices and tools in a slow, steady, measured way.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

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.

eLearning Portal Integration

Tony Karrer

My gut says these tools are going to be separate from the LMS, e.g., SharePoint. For example, SumTotal Systems recently announced SumTotal Stream that provides integration with particular tools: Microsoft Outlook: SumTotal's integration allows access to Talent Development tasks within the widely adopted Microsoft Outlook email client. I've had a similar discussion several times over the past few months.

I Know It When I See It

Andy McAfee

We are conditioned to launch, deploy, integrate… We are conditioned to value software or any other tool by putting it in the perspective of our company and then we try to “see&# how our teams would deal with it, adopt it, how it would help further optimize business processes, how the reporting would do for the leadership team and so forth. For example, one the first comments by Mr. Carswell is that Sharepoint is excluded because it imposes structure.

LMS and Social Learning

Tony Karrer

And I don't think that many of us expect our LMS vendor to provide the solution that organizations will adopt more broadly. SharePoint and LMS seems to be a more common discussion: SharePoint and the LMS - Time to Converge?

Wiki Owner

Tony Karrer

From Masie's recent social learning survey it appears that there is a lot of adoption by learning professionals. Sharepoint) 57% Peer Coaching/Teaching 52% Media sharing (images, videos) 48% Collaborative Spaces - Wikis 47% Blogs 45% Learning Systems for Social Learning (LMS/LCMS) 42% Social Networks 41% Employee Profiles 33% Content Ratings and Reviews 13% Twitter and Mobile Content 12% So I'm not 100% sure I get the disconnect.

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.

Familiarity breeds usefulness

Dave Snowden

Not only that the replacement was less adequate in many a case than the human social equivalent, but that its sustained adoption would remove that social capability to our loss. When I adopted the term sense-making to describe out work I did two things.

Standalone LMS is Still Dead (rebutting & agreeing w/ Dave Wilkins)

Dan Pontefract

Maybe that is, for example, Learn.com, Saba, SharePoint 2010, or mainstays like SAP and Oracle. On one hand, Dave opines that the learning vertical is way behind in accepting, let alone adopting the formal-informal-social learning model.

Ten Predictions for eLearning 2008

Tony Karrer

While large scale adoption will be slow, specific solutions aimed at particular audience needs will be more common. This will increase adoption of Web 2.0 While the iPhone and other mobile devices continue to proliferate and while the amount of web access via mobile devices will continue to grow rapidly (now approaching 20%), mobile learning solutions will continue to find adoption in scattered, specific examples.

Learned about Learning in 2009

Tony Karrer

I will say that adopting TweetDeck on both my desktop and my iPhone has made it a much better tool for me. During the year, I’ve had fantastic conversations through LearnTrends around SharePoint , Examples and Tour of Different Kinds of eLearning , Social Learning , and the Business of Learning. It’s always fun at the end of the year to go back and take a look at what you’ve been working on, what you’ve learned during the year. I’ve been doing this the past few years.
