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.

Tom Vander Wall Nails My Sharepoint Experience | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

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.

Tom Vander Wall Nails My Sharepoint Experience

Nancy White

For a number of years I have cringed every time one of my clients tells me that have or are planning to deploy Microsoft SharePoint as a collaborative platform. My focus is on what people DO with these tools, and very often I’ve seen people struggle with SharePoint.

More Reflections on SharePoint and Picking Technology

Nancy White

Our ministry’s IT department over the past few years developed one major collaboration application (consultation tool to develop consolidated Swiss statements for UN), based on MS Sharepoint. Each community “ready to go with a click&# but siloed in the very design of the software.

Microsoft Expression Web Designer

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I downloaded and tested the Expression Web Designer software. Pages are designed using CSS and standard HTML elements. Access to Microsoft controls and database services (ASP) and Sharepoint services is also enabled. Somebody working the server backend (databases, etc) can very easily set up this product to allow non-technical people to design complex websites. It is a very large download - 224 megabytes, plus the.Net framework.

Design 100

Small actions to create meaning

Dave Snowden

I probably stoked the fires a little by repeating a tweet of similar vintage namely: SAFe is to Agile what Six Sigma is to Innovation and Sharepoint is to Knowledge Management. A naive belief that it is possible to design a large scale human system in a context free way.

Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tony Karrer

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. 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?

Ask not for whom the Reaper comes

KCUK09 - conference blog 2

Dave Snowden

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. Sharepoint came in for a fair amount of criticism which doesn't surprise me, its far too structured for KM.

Dan Pontefract: Open Thinking

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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., Talking directly with designers so people can see the impact of change requests.

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’, …]. Also enterprise wide portal tools like Sharepoint.

She learned how to be an effective participant and this helped propel her to become a designer. Prediction #5 => Lots of SharePoint This prediction is somewhat simple to make: Many organizations have SharePoint installed and IT will install more of it.

Your social wishlist

Jay Cross

Front-running companies are installing social networks like Chatter, Jive, Connections, Socialcast, Yammer, Socialtext, Sharepoint, Ideo, and HootSuite like there’s no tomorrow. Google designs its apps for mobile before porting them to PCs.

Familiarity breeds usefulness

Dave Snowden

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 draws ideas from design thinking, network optimization, brain science, user experience design, learning theory, organizational development, social business, technology, collaboration, web 2.0 Example: sharepoint. Higher ground.

Virtual Worlds: Affordances and Learning

Clark Quinn

Tony also presented, in particular, some principles about designing learning for virtual worlds (see slide 17 here ). Interestingly, they aren’t specific to virtual worlds, and mirror the principles for designing engaging learning experiences that come from the alignment of educational practice and engaging experiences I talk about in my book. Two days ago I attended the 3D Teaching, Learning, & Collaboration conference, organized by Tony O’Driscoll.

New Organizers and New Designs Now, I'm not saying that there's anything new about holding an online conference. Once you go to an online conference it suddenly allows all sorts of new conferences, new organizers and new designs to flourish.

Posting office and administrative content (such as concept of operation documents, requirements lists, software design de-bugging matrices, and meeting minutes) to Intellipedia is helpful, but it fails to reach the core function of the IC. The IC is not designed for efficiency.

I Know It When I See It

Andy McAfee

It could possible be mentioned explicitly the importance of the architecture and design of Web 2.0 Simon Carswell February 9, 2009 at 3:56 am I think one of the problems with of Sharepoint is that it attempts both to be a structured, workflow type system at the same time as a Web 2.0 For example, one the first comments by Mr. Carswell is that Sharepoint is excluded because it imposes structure.
