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. Here’s some of what I found: Why a Wiki?

How to Get the Greatest ROI from eLearning

TOPYX LMS

A number of these company leaders are interested in investing in eLearning, or online learning. What holds them back is the unknown about eLearning’s return on investment. The good news is that there are clear-cut answers to most questions regarding the confusing subject of ROI of eLearning. Does eLearning have a good ROI? These are questions that should be explored before a company puts much time and financial resources into eLearning. eLearning is not free.

Firewalls and Security in Software as a Service

Tony Karrer

Look at security.

Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Clark Quinn

Janet juxtaposes the recent inclusion of eLearning 2.0 Corporate IT is interested in rolling out systems that they can control for security, auditing, back-up and a host of other control reasons. For Wiki-like capabilities, it likely is fine for an LMS to provide these and for learning organizations to use them. So no problem if their Wiki is tied to the LMS.

Second, lets assume you have or maybe you havent and you want a free taste; either way - head over to Socialtext and pick up your free copy of Chapter Nine: The Wiki Workplace. After you finish reading that chapter, then head over to Wikinomics Wiki (powered by Socialtext). It is being written collaboratively and I think the process and the rule set that they have in place there, can serve as models or starting points for corporate or institutional implementations of Wikis.
