Introduction to Wikis, Blogs, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking and RSS

Tony Karrer

Social Bookmarking Social Networking Wikis RSSAs background for an upcoming presentation, I wanted to create a page that provides background resources that explain various eLearning 2.0 tools. I immediately thought of the Common Craft videos. I've embedded them below. Are there other good introductory resources? How about for blogs?

Social Bookmarking Tricks for Group Learning

Tony Karrer

The question was: How are you posting the social bookmarking links on your site? So let me answer that question first and then let me mention a couple of other things that you might want to do with Social Bookmarking tools. You can do the same thing on del.icio.us: [link] and most of the other Social Bookmarking services have similar capabilities.

Thoughts on my ASTD TK07 Sessions - Social Bookmarking and Blogging

Tony Karrer

At ASTD TechKnowledge , I did three sessions around Blogging and Social Bookmarking. My hope would be that the following might occur: Some attendees will try out reading/writing blogs, using an RSS reader (like bloglines), and/or use social bookmarking tools to support their personal learning. First - want to thank Jay Cross for taking pictures at various ASTD events.

One change I have made is to use Pinboard for my social bookmarks. I have collected a few social bookmarks on distributed work in the process. Pinboard — Social bookmarks are a quick way for me to save a web page and find it easily.

Active sense-making

Harold Jarche

As much as I may add feeds into my RSS reader , bookmark web pages or upload photos , these are nothing more than senseless digital constructs until I put them to use. I could have saved interesting tweets to my social bookmarks but instead I decided to do a weekly review of what I had found. Yesterday, during my presentation on personal knowledge management to IBM BlueIQ I was asked about the role of blogging in my own sense-making processes.

Starting to work out loud

Harold Jarche

Free Your Bookmarks: This is a very simple shift that only requires a slight deviation from a common practice: saving bookmarks/favourites on your browser. Being able to share is usually not a prime reason why people start using social bookmarks. It’s amazing how many people do not understand RSS or how to grab a feed and save it. Sometimes we get all caught up in the latest social media tools.

PKM – start small

Harold Jarche

Pretty well anyone with a personal computer saves web sites to their Favorites/Bookmarks. I’ve explained it before in Free Your Bookmarks. If an organization or department decided to put everyone’s bookmarks into a social application it would make for a large repository of links. There may be some effort in going through these bookmarks and adding more descriptive tags but it could be spaced over a period of time.

Why microblogging has moved to the heart of enterprise social initiatives

Trends in the Living Networks

Of all the social media platforms microblogging is the most akin to conversation,” he said. in January 2009, I included in the “Tools” section Wikis, Blogs, Social Networks, RSS and Syndication, Social Bookmarking, and Microblogging. Most employees initially view social software as additional effort on top of heavy workloads, so have no interest in activities such as blogging that they think will be time-consuming.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

Not surprising, the terms most closely associated with Adoption are Adoption of Social Software and Adoption of Enterprise 2.0. There are some great resources on this such as: Ten tips for choosing & using social software Adoption of Web 2.0 Revisited Social Media - The Challenge of Adoption - Rob’s Dummies Guide The secret sauce to successful Enterprise 2.0 But the same report tells us: Social software is not a trend that can be ignored.

Knowledge sharing, one at a time

Harold Jarche

We each use different systems and connect with the open protocols of the web, like RSS, hyperlinks, OPML, etc. For instance, take what Tony Karrer has done with eLearningLearning and expand this to include social bookmarks and synthesized micro-sharing, like my weekly Friday’s Finds on Twitter. PKM is our part of a social learning contract that makes us better off individually and collectively.

Lists As Part of Your Content Strategy: A Short List of Tips and Tools

Beth Kanter

What I love about FAQs is that you can easily transform them in Social FAQ s by adding real questions asked by your audience. Take for example, ” The 100 Tweeters of Social Good You Have to Follow in 2013 ” or the Top Nonprofit Blogs. Bookmarking Tools: Bookmarking tools are list making tools too.

A personal learning journey

Harold Jarche

I had turned my website into my knowledge base ( 2005 ) combining blogs, RSS and social bookmarks to help manage my knowledge flows. I forecast ( 2009 ) that PKM would be an essential part of workplace learning by 2019, but it now seems that will happen much earlier in many sectors with the cheap abundance of social learning tools.

There's some truth to that, but at the end of my What's New in eLearning session (on blogs, wikis, social bookmarking, rss readers, etc.) My personalised learning environment includes many aspects of my knowledge network, including my browser favourites, my RSS feeds, my electronic documents and so on. There's been quite a bit of discussion going on around Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) and personal learning environments.

PKM in 2013

Harold Jarche

“The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” PKM may be an individual activity but it is also social. Research shows that work teams that need to share complex knowledge need tighter social bonds. Social networks, on the other hand, encourage diversity and can sow the seeds of innovation. However, it is almost impossible to get work done in social networks due to their lack of structure.

Training Design

Tony Karrer

How about when you build skills around scanning via RSS, social bookmarking, reaching into networks for expertise, etc.? I've been struggling a bit to capture a concept that I believe represents a fairly fundamental shift in how we need to think about Training Design. Back in 2005, 2006 and 2007, I would regularly show the following slides to help explain the heart of what Training Design is all about and how it has changed over the years.

eLearning 2.0 Random Thoughts based on Chat

Tony Karrer

Social Bookmarking and Wikis and Blogs are a form of social networking I never said this, but several people pointed it out in the chat. The same thing can be true with social bookmarking, wikis, flickr, etc. Using social bookmarking or meme tracking works okay. Going back through the back chat / back channel during my presentation was really interesting to me.

This was interesting to me because I’m co-leading a short online workshop introducing social media in a global international development network.
