Review: SharePoint Conference 2011

Dan Pontefract

I recently had the opportunity to attend and speak at SharePoint Conference 2011 in Anaheim, California along with roughly 8,000 other attendees. This was the first SharePoint conference since the Fall of 2009. SharePoint 15?

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.

SharePoint Templates for Academic Departments

One of my Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010 was “Lots of SharePoint”. I received the following inquiry in between the time I finished writing my predictions and when it went live: I found your post, SharePoint Examples , regarding finding others using SP in training organizations. I actually don’t know where to find templates that might go behind the kinds of use cases that I discuss in Using SharePoint or that is described above.

SharePoint Fear and Loathing by Learning Professionals

Tony Karrer

I was surprised by the fear and loathing expressed around SharePoint yesterday at LearnTrends 2009. SharePoint 2010 looks to be a much better product. Certainly we’ll be doing more sessions like SharePoint in Corporate Learning - Free Micro Virtual Conference (see SharePoint Session Descriptions ). And I’ll continue to collect examples of how organizations are Using SharePoint. You are a consultant who works on SharePoint workplace learning implementations.

Digital Asset Management – LCMS, ECM and SharePoint

Tony Karrer

Oh, and let's not forget that a lot of companies are Using Sharepoint for the exact purpose of organizing the efforts and assets of learning development. Maybe it's because I have not run into these situations, but my impression is that there's not that much need for digital asset management solutions around eLearning and that you are probably already served by your LCMS, enterprise content management, or SharePoint if it is an issue.

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. In Digital Asset Management – LCMS, ECM and SharePoint , I talk to how ECM (Enterprise Content Management) solutions might be a better fit for parts of this. But I’ve seen organizations cobble together solutions using SharePoint more than I’ve seen LCMS solutions.

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

Dan Pontefract

Micro-blogging is starting to become a very effective way in which organizations can mitigate some of the aforementioned points. My main point is that micro-blogging will become a way in which we can flatten the organization.

Socialcast and social learning

Harold Jarche

We’ve been using Socialcast for a while now and for large organizations that have multiple silos of information in repositories like Sharepoint, it’s a pretty good platform. Socialcast also has a blog and some of the posts and infographics have been exceptionally good.

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.

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.

Technology really bores me

Euen Semple

What is the point in buying the latest shiny thing or lumbering yourselves with Sharepoint if no one writes anything interesting? Too many people who use the words but who never blog, never tweet, never think aloud and in public. This may sound like an unlikely thing for me to say but it is true. Don't get me wrong, I love my Macs and my iPhone and do believe that they have enabled me to do things that otherwise I wouldn't have. But that is the point.

Immigrants couldn''t imagine so many people, buildings so large. They wondered what the machine was in the wall that changed people. It was like magic. We look at technology and we glorify it. But we shouldn''t; it''s just another tool. We highlight the technology, but it should be invisible.
