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 Social Learning Experience

Tony Karrer

I had a great conversation last week that sparked an early stage idea for what I think would be a wonderful way for learning and development organizations to leverage SharePoint better. for Marketing – Social Learning Experience The concept is probably easiest to understand by considering what HP did around their course on Web 2.0 You can find more on this by going to the LearnTrends – SharePoint in Corporate Learning Recordings.

On organisational change

Dave Snowden

All of which brings me to the promised theme of this blog, namely how to take the ecological rebalancing ideas of the rewilding movement and apply them to organisational design, with a smidgeon of anthro-complexity thrown in for good measure. Sin in organisational design.

Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tony Karrer

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. 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.

What’s Your Learning Tool Stack?

Clark Quinn

And lately, I’ve been hearing the question about “what’s your <x> stack” [x|x=’design’, ‘development’, …]. So, of course, I created a diagram. Or, of course, the ones others use in your org. Also enterprise wide portal tools like Sharepoint. I woke up this morning thinking about the tools we use at various levels. Yeah, my life is exciting ;).

working smarter case study

Harold Jarche

The university transitioned from designing processes for formal learning to increasing support for informal learning by: Establishing a learning & performance innovation team. From pushing training and courses, to workers pulling learning as required. Enable people in work teams and communities of practice to narrate their work, using existing tools such as Sharepoint, blogs, wikis, and discussion forums.

The experience is really fragmented, from the LMS to (hundreds and hundreds of) Sharepoint sites, social media, and then external. We want to pull ll our content off our LMS, Sharepoint sites, etc., We made a shift from the typical Instructional Designer to 'Learning Experience Designers', who bring different skillsets - novelists, videographers, musicians, etc., Well, Degreed, of course.

Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010

And the first experiences as you tried to move your Authorware, IconAuthor or Toolbook course to run using their new web delivery solution? You will produce a lot more as web/wiki pages instead of course pages. And when you produce courses, in a lot of cases you’ll stick with what the authoring tools give you out of the box. If you want to optimize total learner hours, then you make long courses aimed at lots of employees. Of course, I do.

Open Source eLearning Tools

Of course, I’d recommend skimming through eLearning Learning to find the latest and greatest.

I was just asked about trends in open source for eLearning and particularly open source eLearning tools.

Does your company use an open source Enterprise Content Management Solution, or perhaps Sharepoint or Documentum?)

3 days @ Lake Como, thinking about exaptation

Dave Snowden

Of course this is an Italian conference, so while the agenda is packed from early morning no one expects us to work in the afternoon, and of course the menu is a feature of the event. Darwin in his day talked about traits appear to be imperfectly designed, in effect they are jury-rigged from available material. A half way house between the over structured use of Sharepoint and the total free flow of social computing.

Familiarity breeds usefulness

Dave Snowden

Of course technology embodies human knowledge, but that embodiment by its nature stabilises knowledge at a point in time, it limits innovation shifting the balance from exploration to exploitation. Sharepoint is a good example of this, a competent file storage system it is over structured for human collaboration, instead of augmenting human capability it constrains that capability.

Working smarter

Jay Cross

Working smarter draws ideas from design thinking, network optimization, brain science, user experience design, learning theory, organizational development, social business, technology, collaboration, web 2.0 Of course, I also read the posts of Jane Hart, Harold Jarche, Clark Quinn, and Charles Jennings; we five are always building upon one another’s thinking. Example: sharepoint. Higher ground. I don’t talk much about training or learning any more.

Trends in Learning

Tony Karrer

There's no course on what I do every day. Many organizations are using SharePoint to implement these kinds of solutions. Someone was just asking me about the big trends in learning and the implications of those trends on corporate learning and development. I initially said - "Look at my blog," but when I looked, I realized it might be a bit harder than I thought to pull out the central themes.

Go straight to the finish line

Instead, learning is built into each project though a unique L&D workshop engagement model: Content is produced by experts on the project (facilitated by a learning consultant), published on the project SharePoint server, and the delivery medium decided by whether the content is conceptual or skills-focused.&#. E-learning today appears to be mostly about delivering assessments and designs, testing, personalization, scenarios, and tutorials.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

It was designed to be a small to medium size group discussion, but because the room was large it was very challenging to do that successfully. And, of course, part of the scattering is that people in different kinds of organizations are going to have different needs.

Business of Learning

Tony Karrer

Particularly, I'm interested in the question of: While training as a publisher of courses and courseware faces an increasingly challenging market, what other things can learning businesses successfully sell to internal or external customers? It reminds me a bit of the arguments about the loss of quality as you lose our instructional design and go to cheaper forms of delivery. Are you more or less interested today in taking a course on something? Don't I just use SharePoint?

Of course, few if any organizations are actually going to do this, and based on my conversations with Gary I don’t think this is what he’s advocating. All this, of course, was in addition to the ‘normal’ work of the company. is somehow connected with “using the Portal&# or “SharePoint&# and less about fundamentally shifting the way things work around the place.

A major part of modern instructional design is actually workscape design. Workscape designers, like landscape designers, start with the existing environment. By contrast, instructional designers are accustomed to building new programs from the ground up, like architects who begin by chopping down trees and leveling contours so they can plan from a blank sheet of paper.
