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?

Examples of eLearning 2.0

Clark Quinn

During my presentation last Thursday that was an introduction to eLearning 2.0 as part of an online event for the eLearningGuild, I mentioned a few common ways that I've seen eLearning 2.0 internal processes on wiki starting to use wikis internally Moving faculty bookmarks to Delicious use wiki for learners to craft definition of 'seamless service' after searching orgs that proclaim to provide seamless service We hope to build wikis that our students can use to share information.

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. You can certainly go to Wikipedia and find information about learning concepts including eLearning and eLearning 2.0. However, Wikipedia has some issues (as does any public Wiki) as a place for defining these terms. The article on eLearning 2.0 Update Sept.

eLearning Tools - Wikis, Blogs and More

Tony Karrer

Found via Donald Clark - Business Week article - The Wiki Workplace that discusses use of Wikis and Blogs and particularly their use. At Xerox, Chief Technology Officer Sophie VanDebroek turned the process inside out by setting up a wiki that would allow researchers in the R&D group to define collaboratively the company's technology strategy.

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.

I was just asked about trends in open source for eLearning and particularly open source eLearning tools. Beyond that, probably the best thing to do is to use eLearning Learning to go through it’s open source eLearning and open source eLearning Tools. Of course, I’d recommend skimming through eLearning Learning to find the latest and greatest. Applications in Learning - eLearning Technology , March 3, 2008 Have LMSs Jumped The Shark?

eLearning Strategy

This is either in terms of specific needs, e.g., improve customer satisfaction, or as part of an overall eLearning strategy. I've spent several hours this morning trying to find good resources on eLearning Strategy development and particularly looking for examples to use in this post.

In this post, Dave unfortunately lumps together blogs, wikis, mashups, rss feed together (probably because eLearning 2.0 However, I think the answer about adoption rates is going to be quite different for these things with Wikis and Mashups being adopted at a very high rate.

Crowdsourcing the Future of eLearning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The idea of making students co-creators of the course, by creating definitions, wiki entries, etc. will all be on the same system - eLearning will make no sense in the future, it will be standard learning with content, etc., Based on points submitted beforehand, and the discussion at the final plenary.

Use of Wikis as Compared to Other Tools

Tony Karrer

For an upcoming panel session that will be looking at where eLearning is going, I was trying to get a ballpark sense of how much eLearning is being done with various tools as an indicator of where we stand in terms of adoption of eLearning 1.0, One thing I would say is that I would expect that we'll see adoption of Wiki tools a lot more - but many of the uses will be more as a replacement of web page creation than as a eLearning 2.0

Instruction eLearning 2.0 and Quality

Clark Quinn

in the workplace (really they relate to eLearning 2.0). My quick example of one strategy that I've seen repeated successfully in several organizations: implement a small Wiki that has performance support materials that goes along with your eLearning on that new software application at first have it only editable by the authors then open it up to edit the FAQ and Common Issue pages by your help desk and then open up editing to end-users and to more pages.

eLearning Portal Integration

So, when I'm thinking about eLearning Portal Integration, I'm now thinking about: Exposing links to learning content in the enterprise portal Searchable learning content integrated with enterprise search Integrating social tools with learning content Integration learning management with other day-to-day tools Links and Searching Content The first two items are a bit more common today and it really starts with the question: Is there content and knowledge in the LMS that would be useful day-to-day?

Good Questions Identify eLearning 2.0 Opportunities

Clark Quinn

I'm a big fan of questions (see Better Questions for Learning Professionals ) and as I'm preparing a workshop ( Revolution in Workplace Learning ) one of the things I stumbled upon is what seems to be a great new question: Given that eLearning 2.0 (web wikis, blogs, social networking, etc.) There must be new questions that we need to ask in order to figure out if and how eLearning 2.0 Some of the questions that come to mind that I would use to: Identify eLearning 2.0

Video-Based eLearning Authoring Tools

Tony Karrer

I've been asked several times a similar question so I thought I would throw it out to see what readers here will recommend for doing basic video-based elearning authoring. They would like to convert this to self-paced eLearning. May outsource some of the production work, but the tool must be an off-the-shelf, known authoring tool - no proprietary tools (see eLearning Course Development for rationale on that) Their only experience is with Camtasia.

Surveys in eLearning

For my recent Collaborative Learning eLearning 2.0 You can see the survey results on the Course Wiki. Keywords: eLearning ResourcesClass , I used a SurveyMonkey survey to ask the class members about their background, interests and availability. SurveyMonkey is very easy to use. It's free up to a limit.

Janet juxtaposes the recent inclusion of eLearning 2.0 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. Janet Clarey wrote an interesting blog post in response to the relatively recent edupunk meme which is basically an ideology that DIY learning and repurposing content is the way to go (and somewhat the ONLY way to go).
