A Wiki Tribute to Stephanie McAuliffe

Beth Kanter

This post is my personal tribute – and a request to send her some good wishes on the Stephanie McAuliffe Wiki. I had the honor of getting to learn from and work with Stephanie as part of her special interest in understanding how to support the effectiveness of grantees that are networks or are working in a highly networked way. This exploration is shared on the OE wiki site known affectionately as the “see through filing cabinet.”

How Wikipedia Works and Wikis in the Enterprise - HBS

Tony Karrer

At the bottom of the article, the author interviews Andrew about the use of Wikis in the enterprise. But an encyclopedia is only one of the things you can build with wiki technology. In my experience, Wikis often start (and sometimes end) as an easier-to-use replacement for simple web publishing (an intranet that's easy-to-edit). The new way is to use a Wiki and just click the edit button. The article later discusses: Silverthorne: Have you used wikis yourself?

How I use social media | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

I figured it would be good to exercise my memory a bit and unearth some of the key stories that led me to to my social media use today, and perhaps surface some of my patterns.

Whatever I took a day off and decided to summarise here some of the work I am doing on our Wiki. As I have previously said we are moving all of our methods into that wiki and will release it under a creative commons license. That material will go into the Wiki.

Physical aporia

Dave Snowden

It’s not just physical exercise, it’s also the exercise of some type of craft. Those are all being documented at the moment in an open-source wiki and we will shortly start a weekly training slot around them that will last to May, but it is not the same thing.

Should Employees Be Incented to Use Social Technologies?

Dan Pontefract

Social collaboration technologies such as internal instances of blogging, micro-blogging, video sharing, discussion forums, idea sharing, wikis, and so on are all key aspects of being collaborative. There undoubtedly will be individuals (be it leaders or employees) whom will look at the objective as an exercise in quantity not quality.

Map to the Internet Time Ecosystem

Jay Cross

Previously hard-to-find articles on my wiki have morphed into leave-behind reference material, for example, Learning in Business or Seminal Documents. Thus, I’ve been darting around my blogs, wikis, and other online oddments adding labels and links. This is a tough exercise. Time after time in my recent workshops on web-enabled informal learning, I found myself using my own sites as examples of learning technologies.

Is There a Better Way to Social Learning?


Coaches, mentors, online buddies need to coexist within the wiki’s, blogs, discussion forums, webcam meetings, online presence, etc. But, how can L&D break out of their siloed state and exercise enterprise-wide influence when they utilize point social solutions that lack the ability (both in terms of functionality and vendor influence) to extend beyond training?

No, it’s not, although the two are often confused. Good new ideas are everywhere around us, but turning even a few of those ideas into viable, scalable products and services is something much more difficult.

The instructional design included different delivery methods: interactive lecture with slides and whiteboard, facilitation with sticky notes, small group exercises, posters, group discussion, self-directed activities, and self-directed online activities.

It followed a presentation of the program design where we facilitated an exercise and discussion about their hopes and concerns for the program. On our monthly calls, we will be measuring progress based on these indicators. I’m sure issues will emerge, but hoping to find out what works and what doesn’t and discuss openly with participants as the technical assistance and action learning projects unfold! There is also an self-assessment exercise.

The Social C-Suite

Dan Pontefract

In this way, social media is like an ongoing team building exercise. Once tools like micro-blogging, wikis, video sharing, virtual worlds and blogging are up and running inside the organization, the C-Suite not only needs to utilize the tools, she has a responsibility to continuously post and connect to others, while being truly authentic in her contributions.

Building a Solid Library of Use Cases

Luis Suarez

I have been advocating for social software tools (as an opportunity to explore their huge potential in terms of how they help us become more effective at what we do by becoming more open, collaborative and innovative) from as early as 2000, when I was first exposed to different instances of blogs and wikis, whether inside or outside of the firewall, along with what today would be known as social profiles.

I modeled a lot of different methods for doing “digital documentation” using a digital camera, a flip camera, PPT, and word documents – that could be loaded on a USB stick for participants to take away with them as well as a private wiki once we had Internet access. This was a incredible opportunity to focus on the documentation side – without feeling rushed to get everything online. For the past ten days, I’ve been in Rwanda, Africa.

To me it was nothing but a branding exercise; people taking the idea of the PLE, applying it to something that already existed, and giving it a new name. Martin Weller has released his book 25 Years of Ed Tech today. It's a nice read; you are encouraged to check it out. But I have to confess, on having looked at the table of contents, I thought that it captured my career pretty well.

Six Tips for Evaluating Your Nonprofit Training Session

Beth Kanter

” While a participant survey is an important piece of your evaluation, it is critical to incorporate a holistic reflection of your workshop. This includes documenting your session, reviewing your decks and exercises, analyzing your instructional design, and figuring out how to improve it. I use a simple exercise at the end of every training session I facilitate that asks the participants to reflect on what they learned and how they will apply it.

Our opening exercise was to draw a cartoon that explained a problem we were working on. Half a dozen of us (different folks than in the previous exercise) decided to tackle the issue of how to re-invent books that will lead to meaningful action. Typical topics were how people learn, learning as a process, courses are dead, reinforcement, social learning, wikis and networks, etc. Now it is made of calls to action, performance support, exercises, and tools.

Agile instructional design

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Building a learning ecology is a different exercise than building a training program. Agile programming has come a long way from its early incarnation as extreme programming on the first wiki. I’ve been thinking about fresh approaches to instructional design. Instructional design was invented around the time of World War II. Starting virtually from scratch, America had to train millions of men to be soldiers and millions of civilians to make ships and armaments.

Seven Things I Learned This Year

Over the past few years, I spend part of December going back through my blog to recap a bit of what some of the key things I’ve learned over the course of the year.

The recent article by Dion Hinchcliffe - Blogs, wikis, and Web 2.0 In five years, I would expect us to be building much less SCORM courseware and much more Wiki-like content (web pages) with some interactive exercises, simulations, etc. as the next application platform got me thinking again about what corporate eLearning development will be like in five years. Actually, I'm not even that sure what it looks like today.
