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?

In retrospect 2000-2010: omphaloskepsis ruled

why not both Home About Contact Thursday, 6 January 2011 In retrospect 2000-2010: omphaloskepsis ruled [Image courtesy of Ben Efros ] A conversation with Thierry de Baillon , a perfectly timed tweet from Brian Kenney and an absolutely great post by Vinnie Marchandani force me to write another post today I best start with the wiki link to Omphaloskepsis - one down, two to go. This only works for products with short lifecycle Which is very true of course - but who determines that lifecycle?

Why #VRM is Fools' Gold

Martijn Linssen

Heres the definition of VRM according to Wiki: The goal of VRM is to improve the relationship between the demand-side and the supply-side of markets by providing new and better ways for the former to relate to the latter. There is no relationship if theres not a darn good product in the first place. I stand corrected: there might be a relationship, albeit it cumbersome, via bad, to nagging, without a good product. in the production of balloons).

e-Clippings (Learning As Art): Zone Alarm Listen UP!! This is NOT Customer Service!

Mark Oehlert

Normally I run Zone Alarms security suite of products and I generally think they are the best out there - they are certainly better than Norton in terms of being Norton being such a resource hog. My problem, beyond the obvious, is that the response from Zone Alarm acts as if this is just something that happens all the time (probably does) but worse than that - that it is somehow acceptable to create a product that routinely kills multiple hours of customers time fixing the problem!

Flexuosity untangled

There remains some correspondence but I am not really interested in a product life cycle per se here, other than as something which inherits from a wider market positioning. In a world mediated by social media initial traction is easier to secure for good or ill.

User-Led Innovation Can’t Create Breakthroughs

Steve Denning

Citing the example of Apple [AAPL], they quote the Apple design team who say: “It’s all bullshit and hot air created to sell consulting projects and to give insecure managers a false sense of security. At Apple, we don’t waste our time asking users, we build our brand through creating great products we believe people will love.”. Equally, they cite IKEA designers who “don’t use user studies or user insights to create their products.

Business or Pleasure? - why not both: Why customer service can't.

Martijn Linssen

Wikis definition suits me: Customer service is the provision of service to customers before, during and after a purchase In the ideal situation , a product is that good that it doesnt need WOM , or simply publicity, and will sell itself - meaning no customer will ever have to rely on before-purchase service of your product. It stands without reasoning that such a great product doesnt need service during a purchase either. Due to the product, or the user - irrelevant.

Knowledge sharing paradox revisited

Harold Jarche

The practitioners I talked to about PPI [personal productivity improvement] said they would love to participate in PPI coaching, provided it was focused on the content on their own desktops and hard drives, and not the stuff in the central repositories. She is a prolific knowledge sharer with her blog, wikis, and other social media. The knowledge sharing paradox is that enterprise social tools can constrain what they are supposed to enhance.

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. Why is it that many of the same companies that have successfully reengineered their processes, reduced their costs and increased their productivity over the past twenty years are having a tough time implementing social business strategies?

Reviewing "A New Culture of Learning"

John Hagel

  Tacit knowledge is “the component of knowing that is assumed, unsaid, and understood as a product of experience and interaction.”  By this definition, collectives can take many different forms, including online gatherings of amateur astronomers, gamers participating in World of Warcraft and hackers who learn from each other the best techniques to gain access to the most secure computer systems in the world.

The Future of Learning Management Systems: Development, Innovation and Change

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Comment: some IT people focus on security and privacy. But it wasn’t just those two - there’s video, collaboration tools, wikis- and these created feature bloat in the LMS: they had a lot of tools, but they were just poor imitations of what was available on the outside. But a bigger movement is the success of Canvas, which came out of the gate with a more minimal product.

2010-2020: The Great Divide

Martijn Linssen

Many vendors have taken over companies and products and are still trying (hard) to integrate those into their existing suite - an ongoing process much like evolution and IT change itself - and the customer pays for that effort one way or the other, and will continue to do so - how else can the vendor keep up the effort?! Publish them on your wiki, your blog, the walls of your cafeteria if all else fails. Business or Pleasure? -

Twitter's accidental path to monetisation

Martijn Linssen

There's only one Twitter, so The Laws are kind of shakey there Btw, I looked up saffron and it appears world production is 200 tons, whereas vanilla is 10,500 tons (pepper is 355,000 tons) - that indeed redefines scarcity there Once the VIP model hits us, people can choose between using Twitter more and better, or just buying their way in.

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

1) Two issues that come up, at least in the world of training in a government environment, is that of a) security of information, and b) control of the information given to the learner to make sure it is accurate. Security of the information is something that hopefully your IT organization is already dealing with. I recommend adopting their tools and their security mechanisms. My suggestion is that you don't really try to sell Yammer or a Wiki or any other kind of tool.

Opening new common ground

Doc Searls

I also saw open source tools, with their high use-value, having enormous leverage into sale-value for any company selling products or services based on those open tools. What means do we have for sharing or exchanging that data in secure and trustable ways? How can individual customers notify whole market categories of their intent to purchase a product, safely and securely, without inviting a torrent of promotional jive in response?

Social Media Implications for Business

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Hollywood in general resists anything new because of the potential for cannibalization , that is, the fear that new products will cut into the revenues of existing products. As competition increases and prices drop, you have to restructure your operations, run a much more efficient back office, embrace new innovations that enable you to increase your productivity, and generally drive down your overall costs of production. You want employees to be productive.

How to Get the Greatest ROI from eLearning

TOPYX LMS

Whether it’s an investment in oneself, a business, another person, or a product, a quality return is always desired. The biggest issue is that e-learning programs inevitably tend to grow in the numbers of courses, complexity of interactivity, evolutionary needs (such as the importation of third-party courses), and ‘nice to have’ needs, such as podcasts, video, blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, standards conformance, linking to a human resources information system, and more.

Future Learning Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

For example (this is only an example of process, not necessarily what I would do), in a given domain a domain wiki would be established, where an ISP would manage the technical aspects, where individual experts would be hired to set up content, and where registered members of the community could make changes, add resources, request additional features, etc., where the wiki would be open and accessible to learners, and employed by learning professionals in support of educational activities.

Social Networking: The Benefits Outweigh the Constraints

Nigel Paine

s our IT Department, they are paranoid about security.” “Our There are more and more pieces of software that let you build, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and wikis inside your intranet. More and more product focussed user groupings are appearing on Facebook as well, and there are many blogging. and wiki options available to those who do not want the information to be shared with anyone on an open and insecure internet. Create a buzz around an organisation or its products.

Business or Pleasure? - why not both: Why the EA isn't ready for #E20

Martijn Linssen

Well there also are Organisation, Location, Actors and Roles, Processes, Events, Controls, Products, Functions. I think #E20 will come to a grinding halt after the enterprise has been filled with write-once and read-none wikis, blogs and whatnot technical gadgets that dont serve any particular enterprise goal - then again I think the goal of a modern enterprise is to serve personal profit, ego and kingdoms, and are run by middle-management 6-month horizons.

Above all, the higher education institutions in Africa should adopt and adapt “open innovation policy” which has helped the industry to grow, just as it has helped most of the higher education institutions in the developed nations to use e-learning pedagogy for quality mass education production which has positively impacted their environments’ development.&# However these products and services form a core input in the industrialist’s production process system.
