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. You can find more on this by going to the LearnTrends – SharePoint in Corporate Learning Recordings.

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.

Ask not for whom the Reaper comes

And here you come, dragging your new stakeholder relationship and your sparkling new EPSS behind you, or your cheap-as-heck Web services portal, or your SharePoint, or your WordPress site. Workplace learning means much more than courses and management systems.

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.

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.

The experience is really fragmented, from the LMS to (hundreds and hundreds of) Sharepoint sites, social media, and then external.

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. Of course, I do.

Familiarity breeds usefulness

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.

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

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. It wasn't designed for that , its a new application; an example of exaptation.

Go straight to the finish line

Jay Cross

E-learning today appears to be mostly about delivering assessments and designs, testing, personalization, scenarios, and tutorials. Should we lament that the habits identified in this study are not much different in 2009 than they were in 1989 (although, of course, enabled by technology)?

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.

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? 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.
