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.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

Not surprising, the terms most closely associated with Adoption are Adoption of Social Software and Adoption of Enterprise 2.0. There are some great resources on this such as: Ten tips for choosing & using social software Adoption of Web 2.0

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Wave threads together email, instant messages, documents, and applications in a way that you can follow, and even trace the history, of their links. Wave is a platform that both facilitates collaboration and documents it.

Both sides now

Jay Cross

Employees can upload or create documents, spreadsheets, wikis, and blogs, then invite co-workers and partners to access, edit, and download content. Enterprises are unlikely to dip their toes into collaboration through a six-figure software deployment.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Discussion of Microsoft vis-a-vis Facebook, whether people use Sharepoint, its relation to open source, etc.) Docs.com for Facebook - we wanted to explore 'what happens when work software moves out into other areas'. One thing we discovered is that people don't really want to create docs in that way - so we created a document that will create themselves - eg. Led by Beth Noveck, the idea was to create a document the president could sign actually created by the participants.

I Know It When I See It : Andrew McAfee’s Blog

Andy McAfee

Established vendors of collaboration software are modifying their offerings and repositioning them as social software platforms that have all the features and functions necessary to support the new modes of interacting and getting work done. Because of these facts I usually dodge questions about specific vendors and their offerings, and instead answer how I’d look at any particular deployment of collaboration software to see if it met my definition of Enterprise 2.0.

Coming back after a week of being mostly disconnected I'm woefully behind on email and even more so on my reading. Luckily, I have a short cut to seeing the stuff that is generating interest across most of the top eLearning bloggers.
