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?

Being clear on collaboration

Clark Quinn

Twice recently, I’ve been confronted with systems that claim to be collaboration platforms. And I think distributed collaboration is one of the most powerful options we have for accelerating our innovation. Now, true collaboration is powerful. By collaboration in this sense I mean working together to create a shared representation. It’s not new, it’s been the basis of wikis (e.g.

Open Business – From Document-Centric to People-Centric Collaboration

Luis Suarez

Just for a minute, and while you keep elaborating further up on that thought, let me tell you what would happen: people-centric computing (Or collaboration around and amongst people, for that matter). Thus what are you waiting for to put together that blog post or that other wiki page? .

The Future of Collaboration Lies in Human Resources AND Management’s Hands

Luis Suarez

“ Here we are, 2014 and still wondering what the future of collaboration is — as if we didn’t know already. Despite all efforts to trump it or get rid of it altogether in favour of other noble concepts like cooperation , the hard truth is that collaboration has always been here. It’s because all along, knowledge workers have been encouraged to compete with one another versus helping, caring or collaborating with one another.

eLearning Tools - Wikis, Blogs and More

Tony Karrer

Found via Donald Clark - Business Week article - The Wiki Workplace that discusses use of Wikis and Blogs and particularly their use. Many thousands of Geeks are using a growing suite of collaboration technologies to brainstorm new products and services, manage projects, swap service tips, and socialize with their peers. Geek Squad is a case in point.

Identifying a collaboration platform

Harold Jarche

Step Two, or a concurrent step, would be to look at how to enhance collaboration. First of all, collaborative work tools must be simple to be effective. A collaboration platform that is over-engineered would be counterproductive. The key aspect of a collaboration platform is that should make work more transparent and rewards sharing. Connect the LMS to a collaborative work platform. Migrate learning to a collaboration platform and minimize use of the LMS.

However, this McKinsey Report on Using technology to improve workforce collaboration actually held my attention.

In Why Businesses Don’t Collaborate , Stewart Mader and Scott Abel ask 523 workers about their information sharing habits. In reading through the responses and sample comments, it becomes obvious that there are two technologies that limit workplace collaboration - e-mail & meetings. Most of us who work with social media already know that e-mail can be replaced by more appropriate tools such as wikis, instant messaging, blogs or micro-blogs for a number of tasks.

How Wikipedia Works and Wikis in the Enterprise - HBS

Tony Karrer

At the bottom of the article, the author interviews Andrew about the use of Wikis in the enterprise. But an encyclopedia is only one of the things you can build with wiki technology. In my experience, Wikis often start (and sometimes end) as an easier-to-use replacement for simple web publishing (an intranet that's easy-to-edit). The new way is to use a Wiki and just click the edit button. The article later discusses: Silverthorne: Have you used wikis yourself?
