Conference Wiki Examples

Tony Karrer

Someone asked me for an example of a conference using a Wiki both for organizers during planning, evaluating proposed sessions, etc. For planning this year, we relied on Google Docs and Google Spreadsheets as the primary tools. Likely the Wiki would be much better for something larger. and for attendees with session pages, participant lists, that kind of stuff. Certainly we did parts of this for Corporate Learning Trends 2007.

We had a good time co-writing using Google docs, a little skyping and slowly iterating back and forth.

3 - Google Docs/Drive. So rather than passing around a number of Word documents and trying to collate the results manually, using a collaboration tool like Google Docs makes this an easy process. But there’s lots more you can do with Google Docs too.

Being clear on collaboration

Clark Quinn

It’s not new, it’s been the basis of wikis (e.g. Google Docs), but it’s central. I’ve been a fan of wikis since I first heard about them, and think that they’ll be the basis for communities to continue to evolve, as well as being the basis for effective team work. Twice recently, I’ve been confronted with systems that claim to be collaboration platforms.

Crosspost from NWWCoP: Twitter Chats and Tweetups

Follow-up from the Leadership Learning Community Webinar

Nancy White

Have a visual element – a shared Google doc or presentation, a wiki/chat room in Meetingwords.com or use the white board in a web meeting tool. Can you repeat at some point how to access the wiki? I mentioned two wikis. One was my online facilitation resources wiki here. Last Monday I was a guest of the Leadership Learning Community for an short online gathering. The description was pretty loose and they expected around 50 people to show up.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

The most popular technologies used are instant messaging (74%), wikis and team workspaces (67%), and blogs (51%). An example of that is the adoption of Distributed Content Editing via an agreed to technology such as Wiki, Shared SharePoint Documents, Google Docs, etc.

Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

and that these probably wouldn’t get across, yet: Wikis (partially because of the name). Wikis were becoming more popular, especially those that replicated word processesors, like Writely , which was later purchased to become Google Docs, used ubiquitously today.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

One was having a small (7 person) project team get together on a conference call and have all of us editing the status report real-time via Google Spreadsheets. For some (inexplicable) reason, Google Docs does not. I recommend pbWiki as an easy to use Wiki solution.

Learning Professionals Leaders

Tony Karrer

This makes using something like google docs or pbwiki as an experiment somewhat difficult for the poor, lonely learning professional. How can you apply them to your existing systematic learning system if you don't know what the heck wiki even means? Nobody cared about wikis until wikipedia came along. On this month's Big Question - Lead the Charge - we are already seeing some interesting responses. The Learning Revolution: Where have all the leaders gone?

Help Create Resources for Keynote?

Tony Karrer

I'm not sure how we will create these (Google Docs, Wiki, Mindmap, etc.). I'm doing a keynote presentation at ASTD TechKnowledge in January on New Work Literacies and eLearning 2.0 and another session on Learning 2.0. I would really like to be able to point attendees, blog readers, and realistically a lot of other folks to a set of resources that would help them on these topics. But, I really don't have time to create what I want to create.

Re-orientation

Jay Cross

One of my colleagues at togetherLearn voiced concern that it was disorienting to have our internal discussions spread over several social platforms, a standalone wiki, a persistent Skype chat, and email. It’s a wiki page, ever-changing, but it serves as my port in the storm. When I’m looking for something beyond what Google or Wikipedia will find for me, I turn to my research page. Google Docs : collaborative writing and MyDocs in the cloud. Feeling lost?

My Take on the Top 25

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Google Reader - It's also a major workhorse, though I am slowly improving my own aggregator so it can take over from Google. Google calendar - I use this quite a bit, which is a new thing for me. Not so much Google Calendar, but the idea of using any calendaring tool at all (I used to simply remember all my appointments, but I'm getting old.) Google Docs - I use it a little, but not a lot. Or the Mod Wiki or the Lime survey tool.

The social media I use

Nancy White

It is a sweet combo of real time wiki and chat room that pairs great with a Skype call or telecon. Google Talk sometimes. Google Docs has become my primary shared writing and spread sheet space. Wikispaces and other wikis, including MediaWiki.

New Work and New Work Skills

Clark Quinn

Well consider the following: I effectively use the Google filetype operator? I know what does the Google "~" operator does? I'm good at collaboratively working with virtual work teams and use Google Docs or a Wiki as appropriate in these situations My strong belief is that the foundations of knowledge work are changing fairly quickly and most of us learn completely through ad hoc mechanisms that are not likely to yield good coverage.

Last Year's Predictions For 2008, Reviewed

Looking up "Basic research on learning and instruction will provide new guidance for instructional design" on Google tells us the current state of affairs: an old ITForum paper on information age learning, Gagne's nine steps , and a 2005 paper on ISD. and even Google Search 2.0. Truly valuable content will be found as short videos on YouTube, entries on blogs, or a favorite page on a wiki, none will be housed in a Learning Management System. Google pulled the plug on Lively.

The inclusion of informal, ongoing publications sharing “work in progress” via blogs, micro-blogging or wikis can create additional windows for external triangulation. I’ve commented on a copy of the text that I put on Google Docs, and that I’ve just shared with you. #

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

Channels like email hide information; platforms like blogs, wikis, Facebook, and Twitter make it visible, persistent, and widely consultable. This suite would include blogs, wikis (including collaborative document production tools like Google Docs), discussion boards, SNS, a microblogging tool like Twitter or Yammer, a tagging utility, prediction markets, ways to vote on good content (a la Digg ) and ways to give praise or good karma to particularly helpful colleagues.

The Reality of Virtual Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

And so, there’s a web site out there called Wiki Educator, which is using these Kaltura videos. This allows for the creation of online applications, such as Google Documents, for example, or the Zoho suite of applications or things like Gliffy.com, which is a web page that allows you to draw diagrams, flow charts and things like that. A classic example of course is the wiki. We’re working on Google Docs.
