Wikipatterns - A Pattern to Emulate

Tony Karrer

Found this via a post on EdTechPost: Wikipatterns It provides patterns for various roles and adoption patterns. What's great beyond just finding out about Wikis is the beauty of how the information is presented - as patterns. FAQs are a great tool, patterns applied like this is also a good tool

Ward Cunningham: Ten Years (and more)

Learning 2.0 Strategy

Clark Quinn

However, you can't afford to have any of that written down (email, wiki, etc.) Many people assume that their content falls into that same pattern. That said, there is almost always some technology (Wiki, blog, RSS, etc.) Over the past two years, I've worked with start-ups and corporations around the world who are grappling a bit with the impact of Web 2.0 on learning.

Conference Thoughts

Tony Karrer

On the original post - better conferences - there's been a call for moving this to a Wiki. I'm not really sure what the Wiki would look like, but it seems that there's an opportunity to have something along the lines of a Conference Patterns wiki. It would discuss different patterns that can be used for conferences as a whole or elements of a conference. Hate to post again around better conferences but two things: 1.

approaches inside of corporations - quite good at identifying some different patterns. where he talks about some of the issues with blogs within the enterprise and ends with: Wikis seem to have less baggage attached to them and that might partially (and only partially) explain their recent rise in use within the enterprise. The first uses of Wikis is as an easier content management system that houses reference material. I first saw Andrew McAffee's post on uses of Web 2.0

Ward invented the wiki. Ward is also a leader in the Agile Software movement and the thought leader in Software Patterns. Ward’s original wiki was geeky beyond belief. I mentioned that ten years ago, my glossary defined wiki as “a way to stop a conversation.&#

The recognition of different narrative patterns flows from the insight that different kinds of stories are needed for different purposes. You have to understand what numbers are before you can do algebra. And you have to understand algebra before you can do calculus.

Read "Designing Social Interfaces" if you are involved with humans at all.

Mark Oehlert

The authors talk about social user experience patterns and describe a pattern here as: "A pattern describes an optimal solution to a common problem within a specific context. A pattern is not a finished piece of code or design. Visit the Wiki.

Reflecting socially

Clark Quinn

If teams share their collective thinking (blogs again, or perhaps wikis), they can get feedback not just from each other but also from non-team individuals. We also may be able to review interactions in a social media system, messages and such, to reflect on our communication patterns and improve. About ten years ago, now, Jay Cross and I met and with some other colleagues, started what we called the Meta-Learning Lab.

In many cases, this makes our final delivery pattern much more complex, but it greatly reduces the time required upfront by learners and allows us to get them information much more just-in-time and with more appropriate costs. Yes, you can think of Blogs, Wikis, etc.

Working in the dark

Harold Jarche

Tools like internal wikis can facilitate this, if they are used. As natural pattern seekers, if enough of us can see the data and information we all create, then there may be a chance that we can make some sense of it. I discuss transparency a lot on this blog.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

I also heavily use Wikis, especially when the desired result is a set of web pages. I recommend pbWiki as an easy to use Wiki solution. My primary interest here are the methods and tools that allow us to work better as part of remote work teams.

Everything’s Coming Up Networks (except learning)

Harold Jarche

What started as forums and wikis quickly evolved into more robust networks and communities. People can see the flow of work in small bits of conversation that, over time, become patterns.

Instead, this resilience ensures that they learn to cope with these changes more as part of their continuous “agile” development and learning (Cashman, 2009), recognizing patterns in one situation and making sense of them and applying them in another.

Social Business in the Age of the Customer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Starting about a decade ago with the rise of Web 2.0 , we have seen the explosive growth of social media technologies, - e.g., blogs, wikis and podcasts, - as well as platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube with hundreds of millions of users. With the advent of social technologies and the unifying vision of systems of engagement, businesses needn’t follow this pattern.

Some of the dimensions investigated included: - responsiveness - engagement intensity - role distribution - reward mehcanisms Another project: the CreativeIT wiki - in which we learned that most wikis are dead on arrival. You see this a lot - they set up a wiki where everyone contributes, but you go back 6 months, and there''s nothing there.

Learning With and From Others: Restructuring Budgets for Social Learning

Dan Pontefract

Clearly, a fiscal pattern is emerging and corporate learning budgets are running flat or, worse, dramatically shrinking. Blogs, wikis, microblogging, YouTube-like video sharing, tagging, ranking, virtual worlds, discussion forums, and generally any other form of user-generated content (for learning, communication, and marketing) are both practical and engaging ways to complement the learning strategy of any organization.

Social Media Implications for Business

Steve then mentioned some of the surveys that IBM is conducting to understand the changing media usage patterns of consumers around the world: 68 percent of survey respondents use some social media on a regular basis; 49 percent use it quite often. She mentioned that at IBM quite a number of people use Twitter, Facebook, wikis, blogs and virtual worlds. In the spring of 2005, IBM used a wiki to create a set guidelines to provide practical advice for employees who wanted to blog.

I think you should go ahead and: 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.
