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. A wiki that served as a repository for the resources they collected. See Learning Community, Peers and Outside Experts for more description of possible design elements.

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? I wanted to collect a few resources around this topic for use in these discussions.

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. Our IT department therefore concludes that MS Sharepoint is the basis on which to build SDC’s collaboration platform. Some of the questions turning in my mind are: * What was MS Sharepoint initially conceived to be? Tool is a piece of code designed to do a particular thing.

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.

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.

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. Enable people in work teams and communities of practice to narrate their work, using existing tools such as Sharepoint, blogs, wikis, and discussion forums.

Knowledge artisans choose their tools

Harold Jarche

In the unattained summit of social business , Ton Zylstra writes: So we talked about how corporate systems might integrate social media tools into sharepoint and ERP-software, but not about the notion that it is quickly becoming ridiculous that IT departments should be prescribing what tools professionals should use at all, and not just stick to managing and securing the data flowing through those tools. Knowledge Artisans not only design the work but they can do the work.

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. There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. 20,000 wikis with more than 100,000 users.

I Know It When I See It

Smaller companies and startups often say that the established vendors “just don’t get it&# and that the new features they’ve incorporated – blogs, wikis, discussion forums, tags, etc. It could possible be mentioned explicitly the importance of the architecture and design of Web 2.0 wiki style collaboration suites have very limited RSS consumption capabilities. A wiki that helps bring transparency to projects.

Andy McAfee

Smaller companies and startups often say that the established vendors “just don’t get it&# and that the new features they’ve incorporated – blogs, wikis, discussion forums, tags, etc. For example, one the first comments by Mr. Carswell is that Sharepoint is excluded because it imposes structure. Sharepoint allows the user to utilize this structure but also allows for organizational customizations. A wiki that helps bring transparency to projects.

tools such as wikis, blogs, social bookmarking services, and document storage all of which were indexed by Google Search Appliance. The flagship application in Intelink’s tool kit was Intellipedia—a wiki built upon the same software that drives Wikipedia hosted on all three security networks: JWICS, SIPRNET, and NIPRNET. The underlying message in the press was “if the IC can use a wiki, so can our company.” The IC is not designed for efficiency.

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.
