Kapp Notes

The questions this month are: What will you remember most about 2006? taking my lead from Tony Karrer's post ) What will you remember most about 2006? started my blog in September 2006. More corporations will adopt blogs and wikis when they determine how to add some structure to these unstructured entities. What are the biggest challenges for you/us as head into 2007?

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? Experiencing eLearning , July 27, 2009 Wikis at Work - eLearning Technology , February 25, 2007 Control and Community: A Case Study of Enterprise Wiki Usage , May 4, 2009 Blog or Wiki?

The changing Web

Learning with e's

My own students create a lot of their own content during their study, usually in the form of podcasts, videos, wiki and blog content, and are encouraged to share these publicly online to gain additional feedback. It truly is the ‘architecture of participation’ (Barsky and Purdon, 2006) and demands active engagement as a natural part of its character (Kamel Boulos and Wheeler, 2007).

Wikis - Public vs. Controlled - Why There's No eLearning Wiki

Tony Karrer

18, 2006 - see [link] - which aims to address exactly the issues I'm discussing below in Wikipedia. received an email asking me if I knew of any Wikis that provided information on eLearning concepts. there's not really a place where you can find a Wiki that covers eLearning concepts. However, Wikipedia has some issues (as does any public Wiki) as a place for defining these terms. This is done on Wikipedia for some topics, e.g., List of Wiki Software. In a controlled environment, Wikis are a fantastic tool. Update Sept. Does that make sense? Sheesh.

Shift in eLearning from Pure Courseware towards Reference Hybrids

Tony Karrer

It can be created using Wiki software, a content management system, web editing software or even Microsoft Word stored as HTML. Just when you've made the transition from the prior generation of CBT authoring tools (e.g., Authorware , Toolbook ) to the new generation of WBT authoring tools (e.g., Captivate , Lectora ), it looks like things are slowly shifting again. The shift I'm seeing is away from the design of pure "courseware" solutions and much more to "reference hybrid" solutions. In my mind, "courseware" is interactive (to some level) instruction run asynchronously.

Why Wikis Are Conquering the Enterprise

Tony Karrer

Found via 7 Days and More , interesting article on - Why Wikis Are Conquering The Enterprise by Michael Hickins. Couple of thoughts from the article: adoption is coming mainly from project managers and department-level executives not senior management (and, of course, corporate learning was not mentioned) "In almost every big corporation, some group is already using a wiki," said Andrew McAfee, associate professor of technology and operations management at the Harvard Business School. This echoes what I've been seeing as well.

Thursday, March 08, 2007 Wiki uses at Universities Wikis, a popular Web 2.0 Some universities have deployed a university-wide wiki while others have deployed department-specific wikis. Some of these wikis have been taken down - they existed at the time I wrote this post in March 2007).

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. Wikis provide an opportunity for us to create reference hybrids - Shift in eLearning from Pure Courseware towards Reference Hybrids - easily and maintain them easily. We will dump Dreamweaver and RoboInfo in favor of Wikis. and web 2.0 often lump them together).

Knowledge Management Core Issues

Tony Karrer

Open space methods, creating forums and 'Ba' for trusted exchanges, blogging and informal wikis may help. Great post by Denham Grey - Perennial KM issues that are very similar to the core problems that we deal with in eLearning: How to speed learning, increase awareness and share experiences. With an ever deceasing half-life of knowledge , just keeping up has become a major corporate imperative. Sure we have improved search engines, more stuff on the web and many ways to make connections, but the difficulty is making sense and finding people really 'in-the-know'. practices ?

Wiki Traffic - What Gets Visited on Wikipedia

Tony Karrer

In particular, many of the most popular pages are related to media celebrities and TV shows, which also constitute some of the most popular queries that were submitted to the search engines in 2006. This also suggests something about using Wikis for content that we create. While our workers/learners/users will likely use the content sometimes in the reference look-up, it is likely that they will find the content because of it being appropriately indexed both locally (by the Wiki) and within the intranet/extranet/web search engines. This makes a lot of sense.

By 2006 several social networking sites were enjoying surges in popularity, including MySpace, Bebo and of course, Facebook. 2006 was also the year Twitter was launched. My initial interest in researching the social web stemmed from some early work my colleagues and I did around wikis and blogs in medical education in 2005-2006. Unported License.
