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?

Social Networking: The Benefits Outweigh the Constraints

Nigel Paine

If you sit in the average conference room with, say 40, executives from both the public and private sector and enthuse them about the power, speed and, indeed, empowerment of social networking, you have all the heads nodding in seconds. Take this same, enthusiastic and smiling group and ask them how many people work for companies that restrict access to social networking software or ban it outright, and 35 hands shoot up, and the smiles immediately stop. “It?s

Micro-Blogging is Good for Leadership, Good for Your Culture

Dan Pontefract

I personally don’t care what tool, application or technology is being used to drive enterprise-wide micro-blogging, but it must be secure and ideally it’s behind the firewall. Stand-alone options such as Yammer , Present.ly , Socialcast and Socialwok (amongst others) have cloud-based and internal VPN instances that you can deploy, but again, I argue that you should bring this functionality inside of your organization for reasons concerning intellectual property and security.

What corporates can learn from the Top 10 Tools for Learning 2012

Jane Hart

In their jobs, workplace learning professionals continue to make heavy use of e-learning authoring tools as well as web conferencing tools (which are on the rise this year by the way), whereas their own personal/professional toolsets include a wider range of social and other tools.: If your organization doesn’t like the idea of using Twitter for company conversations, then the next best thing is to set up some sort of corporate company (Twitter-like) network.

Social Business in the Age of the Customer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Social Media is one of the hallmarks of our digital age, enabling individuals and communities to create and share user-generated content. 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.

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

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Comment: some IT people focus on security and privacy. social networks and blogging. 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. Phil Hill Summary notes from the presentation at from at the World Conference on Online Learning , Toronto. Slides: [link] We forget about the perspective of time.

Transparent work

Harold Jarche

Tweet People are now the engine of change and the fuel is communications, says Jay Deragon in Systemic Impact of Social Technology. These were professional associations, networks of researchers and administrators, and others. Communication in a network is not the same as what we may have considered as traditional business communications. For more contextual knowledge, I ask my network via text message, Twitter, blog or forum.

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.

Social Media Implications for Business

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

As part of my activities during the week, Dean Ernest Wilson hosted a conference on Social Media: Platform of Provocation for Innovation? The half-day conference consisted of two panels : one on the social and technological innovation being brought about by social media, and the other on the implications of social media to business. The panel focused on the implications of social media to the communications and media industries as well as to organizations in general.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. Question 1 - What are the most likely ways / places your organization might or does use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking or Collaboration Tools?

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. I certainly talk about a big part of the value of blogs being building a network. The same thing can be true with social bookmarking, wikis, flickr, etc. blog to blog to wiki to person) and coming back to a particular node in that string? Using social bookmarking or meme tracking works okay.

Come Together

Jay Cross

Organizations have woken up to the power of people working together.

Humannet at Cisco

Yesterday I spent the day at Cisco talking with old friends and new about what Fast Company recently described as an “unprecedented forward-looking strategy to unleash what it’s calling a ‘ human network effect ’ both on and off the Cisco campus.” That said, many companies would not be successful taking Cisco’s leaderless, social approach.

Hence, for example, before we offered CCK08, we placed the course schedule and curriculum on a wiki, where it could be edited by those who were interested in taking the course (this was a strategy adapted from the ‘Bar Camp’ school of conference organization and the EduCamp model as employed by Nancy White and Diego Leal). My ambition to speak in public in French, for example, was prompted by a talk given by Doug McLeod to a national conference on learning networks.
