Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint. SharePoint is so flexible and the documentation for it is so big and diverse, that a big part of my goals have been to understand the different ways that training organizations are using SharePoint. In my post SharePoint Examples there are some great examples in the comments. In this post, I wanted to capture some of the patterns of use of SharePoint that seem to be emerging.

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.

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.

2.0 is a philosophy, not a technology

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Informal SharePoint. Social SharePoint 2010, eRoom/Documentum. Social Wikis. Social Blogs (written/ video). Social Micro-blogging. Internet Time Alliance spent a couple of days last week putting the 2.0 into a tedious proposal for a large, forward-facing multinational corporation. Among our recommendations were: Informal Live webcasts. Informal Recorded webinars.

The Smart Worker : shares what s/he learns

Dave Snowden

I'm also at a conference in Aberdeen for the next few days so expect a flurry of blogs if the content is interesting. The highlight of day two for me (ignoring my keynote on which I am not qualified to make a judgement) was this wonderful statement about a Sharepoint implementation from a speaker who will, for the sake of his career remain nameless : It matches the aspirations of our chief executive who doesn't want people messing about with face book.

Micro-Blogging is Good for Leadership, Good for Your Culture

The Standalone LMS is Dead

Dan Pontefract

This past week, I attended the SharePoint 2009 conference in Las Vegas. I’ll provide some feedback on that particular release in another blog posting (read Bill Simser for now) but what the conference itself got me thinking about was that, thankfully, the standalone LMS is definitely going to become redundant. Coaches, mentors, online buddies need to coexist within the wiki’s, blogs, discussion forums, webcam meetings, online presence, etc.

Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010

Tony Karrer

I actually think this is some of the most valuable stuff on my blog, and I believe that most knowledge workers are not really taking advantage of this at the level they should. You will produce a lot more as web/wiki pages instead of course pages.

Social Learning Tools Should Not be Separate from Enterprise 2.0

Tony Karrer

This could be: SharePoint, Yammer, Confluence, etc. I agree with John that rolling out an empty Wiki or other enterprise 2.0 If an organization has SharePoint and InGenius, my preference would be that social interaction occurs in SharePoint.

Social Networking: The Benefits Outweigh the Constraints

Nigel Paine

There are more and more pieces of software that let you build, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and wikis inside your intranet. s SharePoint has been spectacularly successful in delivering enterprise control but loose, flexible apps and freedom for individual employees to choose where to go, if they have permission. The BBC has developed Moo, which is an intranet application, that encourages staff to share (any media, any time), blog and inspire.

One of the earliest guilds was the open source community which developed many of the communication tools and processes used by Knowledge Artisans today: distributed work (CSCW); results-oriented work (your code speaks for you); RSS, blogs, wikis, flattened hierarchies, etc.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

The information in this series has been something I've been presenting, writing, blogging about and more recently doing workshops around. 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.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

The most popular technologies used are instant messaging (74%), wikis and team workspaces (67%), and blogs (51%). And I'm certainly seeing a lot of SharePoint. A prime example are blogs. Blogging is somewhat a personal/network version of discussion groups.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. Question 1 - What are the most likely ways / places your organization might or does use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking or Collaboration Tools?

eLearning Portal Integration

My gut says these tools are going to be separate from the LMS, e.g., SharePoint. For web pages, wiki pages, PDFs, Word Docs and other standard content that's easy.

LMS and Social Learning

We’ve recently seen LMSs shift to include more functionality, such as wikis, blogs, social networking, etc. If I want a great blogging platform, I’m going to download WordPress (it’s free and has a huge support community).

What will change in 2010?

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Take blogs, for example. Blogs were geeky lists of pointers and commentary. Then the public embraced blogs. There are more than 100 million blogs. Who needs to be confined by the likes of SharePoint when you can easily see how everything is related?

Extending elearning?

Clark Quinn

A contact asked me what I saw as the link between Sharepoint and elearning, and I started to give my standard answer about portals fitting in with the whole performance ecosystem. Last I played with Sharepoint, it seemed like a portal solution; a place to deposit files. However, I decided to update myself on Sharepoint features, and went to look at Microsoft’s page.

Both sides now

Jay Cross

Employees can upload or create documents, spreadsheets, wikis, and blogs, then invite co-workers and partners to access, edit, and download content. It’s not uncommon to find companies using SharePoint and third-party SaaS products.

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. There can’t be separate or disparate blogs, wikis, content repositories, video servers, etc. Organizations already have content platforms (Documentum, SharePoint, etc.),

Once more, across that chasm

In 2005 I wrote that these technologies were ready to cross the chasm: Blogs (with some difficulties ) & RSS. and that these probably wouldn’t get across, yet: Wikis (partially because of the name).
