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 learning is what makes us human. It''s also more social - learning has been more and more peer-to-peer and not just listening to the teacher. In 2008 I was able via a MacArthur grant to create a social media classroom. There''s also the wiki, to create pages that anyone authorized to edit. We also use social bookmarks. The web is not just Facebook; it is not just social classrooms.

Web 2.0 Tools in the Enterprise

Tony Karrer

where he talks about some of the issues with blogs within the enterprise and ends with: Wikis seem to have less baggage attached to them and that might partially (and only partially) explain their recent rise in use within the enterprise. I'd also suggest that part of the reason that I always suggest that Wikis will get faster uptake than things like Blogs and Social Bookmarking is that Wikis can be a better replacement for something else without much behavior change.

I Know It When I See It

Andy McAfee

Established vendors of collaboration software are modifying their offerings and repositioning them as social software platforms that have all the features and functions necessary to support the new modes of interacting and getting work done. Smaller companies and startups often say that the established vendors “just don’t get it&# and that the new features they’ve incorporated – blogs, wikis, discussion forums, tags, etc.

Emergent Knowledge Management

Tony Karrer

There's been a long running discussion around what Knowledge Management is going to look like going forward and whether big systems that manage knowledge are going to be there. I had imagined that we would provide relatively simple, free-form tools like Wikis, blogs. Structure would come from a layer on top such as social bookmarking and digg, and, of course, from search across unstructured content.

Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Tony Karrer

type tools in Learning Management Systems against the philosophy that corporate and commercial is evil of the edupunkers. The questions she raises are: Is the edupunk ideology saying that the use of social media in commercial learning management systems is an assault on the very philosophy of learning 2.0? Corporate IT is interested in rolling out systems that they can control for security, auditing, back-up and a host of other control reasons.

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. 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. You can control who can do what on many wikis.

Models for Learning Questions

2) How do you sale to the NON-Gen Y's and Millennials who are in upper management who fear things like wiki's? I gladly jump on their shoulders (and systems). Yammer (internal twittering) is almost impossible to explain to someone who has no experience with any social networking (and probably not with anything more than email lists). My suggestion is that you don't really try to sell Yammer or a Wiki or any other kind of tool.

Personal Learning Environments and personal learning environments

Tony Karrer

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.) Note: Stephen and I don't agree on using the term Personal Learning Environment (PLE) with capitals to mean a put together system that integrates and supports your personal learning and a personal learning environment (lower case letters, no acronym) as the set of tools you use to help yourself learn (likely not very integrated).

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The intent of such systems is to to facilitate the conversation and interaction around episodic learning events in a distributed environment, transforming them from elements in a linear flow-based design to free-floating objects in an environment. Such systems are by their very nature episodic. One day capitalism is the unassailable foundation for our economic system, the next day, following a market collapse, it is not.

Managing emergent practice

Harold Jarche

Certain skills can be developed in preparation for dealing with complexity but it is just as important to have systems in place that support workers in dealing with complexity. Web tools like social bookmarks, feed readers, blogs, and wikis can help (See Jane Hart’s 25 Tools for Learning Professionals ). What would happen if you called for closing your training department in favor of a new function?

Social media in action. with Wiki, Blog, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking, etc. instead it's really systems that harness network effects. Literally just bookmarked How Wikipedia Works this morning. At the Tim O'Reilly keynote at the DevLearn conference. His outline is very interesting in that he's promising to talk about the "new literacies." I'm hoping this is going to be similar to Work Literacy.

That post focused primarily on how Social Bookmarking tools such as del.icio.us tools could be used as part of a system that would support them in this challenge. It will be important for all staff members to keep this in mind as they use the systems. To get this going, the department selects one person (who likes playing with systems) to first go through and set things up for themselves.
