Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning

George Siemens

Those fine folks at University of Manitoba (motto: we’ve never met a permanent link that we haven’t made unpermanent) have deleted the wiki and the website. Anyway, I’ve uploaded the pdf version of the document (the wiki is gone): Handbook of Emerging Technology for Learning

Tony Karrer

At the bottom of the article, the author interviews Andrew about the use of Wikis in the enterprise. But an encyclopedia is only one of the things you can build with wiki technology. In my experience, Wikis often start (and sometimes end) as an easier-to-use replacement for simple web publishing (an intranet that's easy-to-edit). The new way is to use a Wiki and just click the edit button. The article later discusses: Silverthorne: Have you used wikis yourself?

Social Business in the Age of the Customer

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.
