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? I wanted to collect a few resources around this topic for use in these discussions.

Whose Side(wiki) Are You On?

Doc Searls

Nobody’s forcing anybody to use Google, Mozilla, any of their products or services, or any of the stuff anybody adds to either. What are we to make of Sidewiki ? Is it, as Phil Windley says , a way to build the purpose-centric Web ? Or is it, as Mike Arrington suggests , the latest way to “deface&# websites? The arguments here were foreshadowed in the architecture of the Web itself, the essence of which has been lost to history — or at least to search engines.

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. However, Wikipedia has some issues (as does any public Wiki) as a place for defining these terms. vendors posting a link to their product) vs. being a comprehensive resource vs. being too leading edge. This is done on Wikipedia for some topics, e.g., List of Wiki Software.

eLearning Tools - Wikis, Blogs and More

Found via Donald Clark - Business Week article - The Wiki Workplace that discusses use of Wikis and Blogs and particularly their use. Many thousands of Geeks are using a growing suite of collaboration technologies to brainstorm new products and services, manage projects, swap service tips, and socialize with their peers. Geek Squad is a case in point.

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).

Enterprise 2.0, Where Art Thou?

Luis Suarez

Social Business has been in full swing for a good while as well and while the former focuses pretty much on a new kind of digital, more collaborative and social tools that have been made available for a good while (as far back as 1994, for example, for the first instances of either blogs or wikis), the latter probably just focuses on the overall transformation of how businesses operate as a whole.

Moving from One to Many - LMS Products are Two Generations Behind

Tony Karrer

I ran across an article by Bob Mosher in CLO entitled: Moving from One to Many that discusses the disconnect of what LMS products are focusing on "competency mapping and effective resource management" vs. what Bob sees as the overall industry trend - "industry shifting its overall training focus away from skills acquisition to an overall strategy of project-based and outcome-driven learning." Making LMS products bigger, more complex is likely the exactly wrong way to go.

Rod : A wiki world is the new world we suddenly find ourselves in today where networks are far smarter and faster than hierarchies. "Wiki " is the Hawaiian word for "fast" or "quick."

In it, Dan shares how they keep making use of social tools like blogs, wikis, microblogging, etc. It’s all a matter of understanding that rather than managing it as a project and making it mandatory, it will always be much more productive leading the change, facilitating it, embracing it fully starting with yourself, regardless of where you may well be within the organisation, helping others how they could benefit themselves from making use of social networking.

As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, I have been involved with social tools for nearly 20 years, when I first got started with blogs and wikis while working at IBM. It should come to no surprise to anyone out there who knows me, or who has been following this blog for a good while now, how as I was getting more and more involved with blogs, wikis, social bookmarks, micro-blogging, RSS newsfeeds, podcasts, forums, profile aggregators, online community spaces, etc.

Adios Ed Tech. Hola something else.

George Siemens

Others have been more decentralized and unstructured – like blogs, wikis, and social media. First, Sebastian Thrun, in an Economist article, states: “BECAUSE of the increased efficiency of machines, it is getting harder and harder for a human to make a productive contribution to society” If that is true, why is his startup trying to teach humans? My early interest was in blogs and wikis in learning.

User-Led Innovation Can’t Create Breakthroughs

Steve Denning

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. The users themselves often have no idea if they will like an breakthrough product before they start using it. In short, user-based design will result in average products, that might satisfy users, but will not delight them.

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

Yet, change is happening, often under the radar of enthusiasts because it’s harder to sell a technology product or draw clicks to a website when being nuanced and contextual. A stunning period web innovation occurred between 2000-2005: delicious, myspace, many blog platforms, flickr, wikis, etc. Digitization is deceptive in that the deep impact isn’t readily observable. Remember when MOOCs were going to transform higher education?

Steve Jobs’s Legacy: The Best Answers to the Most Important Question

Andy McAfee

Jobs and Apple have done the best job of answering with their products the question posed by wiki inventory Ward Cunningham : What’s the simplest thing that could possibly work? But I’ve also been a staunch defender of Apple and its products and policies because they have given huge numbers of people what they wanted. Remember all the predictions from members of the technorati that the iPad would fail ?

Dave Snowden

the mix of 360º feedback from peers and clients, narrative journaling and wiki-participation will all give us data that reflects many months of shared work and thinking that we can use to measure both theory and practice as a by product of network knowledge creation. We will work with them to define an areas of specialisation and they will start to take more advanced roles in retreats and take a full part in the new methods and tools wiki (something else we can measure objectively).

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.

Proliferating Portals

Clark Quinn

After my last blog post , a commenter asked a pertinent question: Many organizations/companies have multiple intranets, wiki sites, and so forth, often making it difficult for employees to know where to go when they want an answer or more information. While your department creates online and classroom courses on how to use the company’s main products, you see the need for more advanced-level training.

Barriers to Collaboration

Harold Jarche

Most of us who work with social media already know that e-mail can be replaced by more appropriate tools such as wikis, instant messaging, blogs or micro-blogs for a number of tasks. Also, we free-agents know only too well how much time we’ve saved by being outside an organization and not having to attend useless meetings [I would say that by avoiding meetings & commuting, I gain 2-3 hours of productivity per day].
