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?

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.

Will Blogs, Wikis, RSS, Mashups be Used in Corporate eLearning?

Tony Karrer

In this post, Dave unfortunately lumps together blogs, wikis, mashups, rss feed together (probably because eLearning 2.0 However, I think the answer about adoption rates is going to be quite different for these things with Wikis and Mashups being adopted at a very high rate. RSS and Blogs have much slower adoption. We will dump Dreamweaver and RoboInfo in favor of Wikis.

Wiki Course Authoring

Tony Karrer

In my Ten Predictions for eLearning for 2008 , I said - Wiki + SCORM + Add-ins will become more common for easy authoring. Not sure if he saw my post, but I was just reminded by Tim Seager from Xerceo about their Prescribe tool that provides: Full Wiki, RSS functionality that is SCORM conformant for tracking and managing competencies. It's horribly cryptic, you can't tell what's happening and it defeats the whole point that I see in using a Wiki for authoring.

The After Action Review (AAR) of the event is now up on the wiki if you are interested! The DGroup was augmented with a Wikispaces wiki to enable quick capture, summarization and machine translation of the group emails. The language sub groups were the most utilized, and few reported using the wiki/Google Translate option (80% did not use it, but the 20% who did found it useful. The overall wiki page view does show a doubling in traffic during the event.

2.0 is a philosophy, not a technology

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Informal RSS Feeds. Social Wikis. Internet Time Alliance spent a couple of days last week putting the 2.0 into a tedious proposal for a large, forward-facing multinational corporation. Among our recommendations were: Informal Live webcasts. Informal Recorded webinars. Informal Video conferencing. Informal Workshops. Informal Audio/ podcasts. Informal Learnshop. Informal Case Studies.

Tools Used

Interestingly RSS readership for "weekly" only adds up to 41%. There's clearly a gap here around the use of RSS readers. Keywords: Podcasts, Twitter, Slideshare, Flickr, MySpace, LinkedIn, Facebook, Wiki, RSS, RSS Reader, Wikipedia, delicious, del.icio.us, blogs I've been working with Steve Wexler and the eLearningGuild on the eLearning 2.0 survey and report.

A Review of SAP Jam

Dan Pontefract

Wiki pages created – 2455. The product itself does accomplish what it purports to do … through the use of micro-blogging, blogging, groups, polls, tasks, photos, videos, wiki’s, bookmarks, tagging, links and the directory … it unifies a collaboration experience and creates an environment of mutual interactions. Wikis. There must be a way to delineate between photos in the master view that are profile, wiki-based and knowledge/learning related.

Learning 2.0 Strategy

Clark Quinn

However, you can't afford to have any of that written down (email, wiki, etc.) 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. One of the more interesting aspects of this is that I've really changed and refined what I advise both audiences in terms of their learning 2.0 strategy.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

George Siemens

Between flickr, del.icio.us, blogs, RSS readers, and wikis, we were living the distributed, networked, learning dream. My social network used to consist of the people in my RSS reader. Last week, we wrapped up another successful Learning Analytics Summer Institute at Harvard. The recordings of most of the talks and panels can be found here.

On the Indieweb

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Although RSS was originally designed for bookmarks, building on Netscape's bookmarks feature, it was eventually transformed into a model for self-syndication, and only ever used to describe one's own work.

How can you apply them to your existing systematic learning system if you don't know what the heck wiki even means? She lists the tools and what you should know as: Wikis : How to edit, how to read, how to link to RSS Feeds : What are they, how do I read one, once I have a reader set up how do I scan info collecetd, how do I share info using one Blogs : How do I write one. Nobody cared about wikis until wikipedia came along.

These are not just trivial materials, but valuable performance support resources, for example: How-to materials at sites like Wiki How – “ the world’s collaborative how-to manua l&# – that provide clear steps on how to do something, e.g. How to add a movie to an iPad. When interviewed by SocialMedi.biz in 2009, and answering concerns about the use of a wiki in an organisation, Josh reported. Tweet.

Working on Internet Time

Harold Jarche

One of the earliest knowledge guilds was the open source community which developed many of the communication tools and processes used by knowledge artisans today: distributed work; results-only work environments (your code speaks for you); RSS, blogs & wikis for sharing; agile programming; flattened hierarchies, etc. Tweet An artisan is a skilled manual worker in a particular craft, using specialized processes, tools and machinery.

eLearning Learning Update

Tony Karrer

eLearning Learning was launched about a week ago. There has been quite a response and some great feedback. It made it to the delicious popular pages for eLearning and e-Learning. If you look at the other entries such as Jane Hart's recent top tools and Stephen Downes on The Future of Learning, that's quite good company. Several of my favorite bloggers have been added into the mix. I'm also listing what they show as their top tools in the widget for some of them - which I find interesting.

Knowledge artisans choose their tools

Harold Jarche

One of the earliest guilds was the open source community which developed many of the communication tools and processes used by Knowledge Artisans today: distributed work (CSCW); results-oriented work (your code speaks for you); RSS, blogs, wikis, flattened hierarchies, etc. How can you be a knowledge worker if you’re not allowed to pick your own tools?

Why microblogging has moved to the heart of enterprise social initiatives

Trends in the Living Networks

in January 2009, I included in the “Tools” section Wikis, Blogs, Social Networks, RSS and Syndication, Social Bookmarking, and Microblogging. IBM’s broad-based social platform Connections and platforms that began with specific tools such as wikis and blogs and have now shifted to broader social suites, such as SocialText , Jive , Telligent all include microblogging, while Cisco has introduced Jabber.

Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

In 2005 I wrote that these technologies were ready to cross the chasm: Blogs (with some difficulties ) & RSS. 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.

Map to the Internet Time Ecosystem

Jay Cross

For example, we’d walk through the Informal Learning blog to look at an RSS feed, an internal search engine, scanning the 100 most recent posts, a Creative Commons license, and so on. Previously hard-to-find articles on my wiki have morphed into leave-behind reference material, for example, Learning in Business or Seminal Documents. Thus, I’ve been darting around my blogs, wikis, and other online oddments adding labels and links.
