Wiki Course Authoring

Tony Karrer

In my Ten Predictions for eLearning for 2008 , I said - Wiki + SCORM + Add-ins will become more common for easy authoring. Not sure if he saw my post, but I was just reminded by Tim Seager from Xerceo about their Prescribe tool that provides: Full Wiki, RSS functionality that is SCORM conformant for tracking and managing competencies. It's horribly cryptic, you can't tell what's happening and it defeats the whole point that I see in using a Wiki for authoring.

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?

Dissertation Wiki

Tony Karrer

She also made one comment that was very interesting: To the consternation of my rather conservative university, I am submitting the dissertation in the form of a wiki (although - strictly speaking - is it really a wiki if I don't open it up to the community to co-author, which of course I can't do in this instance). First, I can't imagine trying to do a dissertation wiki. So, if they provide comments via the Wiki doesn't that make a lot of sense.

Creating the Connectivist Course

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

One was the beginning of open online courses. We had both seen them in operation in the past, and had most recently been influenced by Alec Couros’s online graduate course and David Wiley’s wiki-based course. What made these courses important was that they invoked the idea of including outsiders into university courses in some way. The course was no longer bounded by the institution. But beyond that, the course was non-traditional.

Moodle Course Conversion

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Moodle is an open source course management system with a wide following. Moodle (the “M&# is for modular) has sprouted extensions and capabilities you’d expect in a constructivist environment such as forums, chats, and wikis to supplement traditional course management features.

Wikis - Public vs. Controlled - Why There's No eLearning Wiki

Tony Karrer

I received an email asking me if I knew of any Wikis that provided information on eLearning concepts. there's not really a place where you can find a Wiki that covers eLearning concepts. However, Wikipedia has some issues (as does any public Wiki) as a place for defining these terms. This is done on Wikipedia for some topics, e.g., List of Wiki Software. In a controlled environment, Wikis are a fantastic tool. Update Sept.

Wiki Traffic - What Gets Visited on Wikipedia

Tony Karrer

This also suggests something about using Wikis for content that we create. While our workers/learners/users will likely use the content sometimes in the reference look-up, it is likely that they will find the content because of it being appropriately indexed both locally (by the Wiki) and within the intranet/extranet/web search engines. Of course, many organizations have issues with good intranet search. Interesting article - What is Popular on Wikipedia and Why?

Pimp My Course

Tony Karrer

In a comment on Podcasting has No Inherent Pedagogical Value - which has some interesting comments in it around technology and value - I was pointed to an interesting article in the Chronicle - Pimp My Course and Stephen Downes summary of some of the responses. It changed the dynamic somewhat, but, of course, it's still lecture. Now I would definitely be using a Wiki for my class notes and syllabi - it's just easier.

Beyond the course

Clark Quinn

Without going into all the thinking (it’s elaborated more in several places, including this white paper ; PDF), the point is that supporting people in performance includes not just courses, but content and job aids, and connections to people. The social network provides the rest of the support around the courses which really only serve the situation where a major skill-shift change is needed.

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?

Course and Courseware Fading - The Future of eLearning

Tony Karrer

Two very good recent posts by Jay Cross and Brent Schlenker discuss the Death of Courses. Courses and Courseware are not really dead and will never die out completely. I believe that many courses will begin to include different kinds of interation. But, there will still be courses at the end of the day. By far, the easiest first step is to Put down that authoring tool and pick up a Wiki Why a Wiki?
