Thoughts about 2006 and Predictions for 2007

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?

Top Ten Reasons To Blog and Top Ten Not to Blog

Tony Karrer

Update on Nov 21, 2007 - There's been a lot of discussion recently around using blogs for learning and I wanted to point to a few newer thoughts on this: Learning and Networking with a Blog (Deleted Scenes) Blogging - I'm Pushing Harder Now New Debate on Value of Blogs and Wikis in the Enterprise More eLearning Bloggers I must say that the response to The Learning Circuits Blog: The Big Question for October: Should All Learning Professionals Be Blogging? Updates recent studies show additional reasons: Blogging and Social Networking Boosts Your Social Life. Blogging -- It's Good for You.

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).

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 InternetNews.com - 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.

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. 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).

Wiki Help

client asked me the other day, "what is the best way for a division of a large company to launch and maintain a public wiki, including what is the best software?" I had some ideas, but I would greatly value what others would suggest I have a quick question, spurred on by Jay's post below.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: I Heart My Wiki

Learning Visions

Friday, July 06, 2007 I Heart My Wiki I have finally thrown myself into the wiki waters. The kickoff meeting agenda and notes went in the wiki. Interview transcripts go in the wiki. Notes from conversations with staff members go in the wiki. Brainstorms and project ideas go in the wiki. In fact, it seems like the Strategic Plan is being written in the wiki.

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 ?

Collaborative Learning Using Web 2.0 Tools - A Summary

Tony Karrer

You can find out more about the course itself from the Wiki at: [link] The basic structure of the course was: Six weeks long, each week had a one-hour virtual classroom session First two weeks were introductions to the tools and to collaborative learning Middle three weeks were the design (as a team) of collaborative learning projects, facilitation/participation in projects. think that we achieved a different kind of understanding around Blogs, Wikis, Discussion Groups, etc. approaches. Summary This has been a great learning experience for me. would highly recommend SurveyMonkey.

Activity in the Discussion Wiki

The Learning Circuits

member going by the screen name "learning" has added a page for discussion of "Funding sources for public sector projects."  Peter Shea recently added a page to discuss "Becoming a great simulation designer."  He's hoping the community will use the wiki to share reading lists, organizations to join, and types of projects to tackle.

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.

Wikimania 2006 and Wikiversity

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

As it just so happens, the Wikimania 2006 conferense is in full swing at Harvard. Tons of wiki goodness here. Get ready for a lively discussion on wikis at the elearndevcon2006. Fellow blogger and Intel colleague Josh Bancroft is blogging the event at tinyscreenfuls.com. Check out his flickr stream here. Sounds like lots of great conversations going on. Also, Mark Oehlert over at e-clippings points me to the Wikiversity. Wikibooks is fabulous in and of itself but the addition of wikiversity makes me smile. My daughter is a big fan of our solar system and she loves this.

#40years of educational technology: Social media

Learning with e's

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.

Google Acquires JotSpot

Tony Karrer

Just saw this on TechCrunch - Google Acquires Wiki Collaboration Company Jotspot. This suggests that Google will have a Wiki tool (that's partyly aimed at the enterprise) as part of their Google Office. Google now has a great wiki tool. Interesting timing in that I just posted about Matt Glotzbach's presentation at the Web 2.0 event. Google already has blogger. VERY INTERESTING

Interesting - I posted the other day about Wikis - Public vs. Controlled - Why There's No eLearning Wiki and several of the comments pointed out that something like Digg for eLearning would be great. just saw: [link] - News for Education 2.0. While this is not quite eLearning and is more education focused, it certainly is Digg for a particular community

Future Platforms for eLearning

Tony Karrer

The recent article by Dion Hinchcliffe - Blogs, wikis, and Web 2.0 as the next application platform got me thinking again about what corporate eLearning development will be like in five years. In five years, I would expect us to be building much less SCORM courseware and much more Wiki-like content (web pages) with some interactive exercises, simulations, etc. What's the bottom line?

View of eLearning Development Approaches - Ease vs. Power

Tony Karrer

Based on some discussions around What is Rapid eLearning? and Shift in eLearning from Pure Courseware towards Reference Hybrids , I've realized that one of the mental models I use can be roughly summarized by the following picture: where Ease is roughly how easy (cost, time) is it to develop using that approach and Power is the ability of the tool to provide robust, complex learning solutions.

Learning Design in a Nut Shell

Tony Karrer

For example, I might say that we plan to provide a Wiki that will be used both during up-front formal learning for collaboration around key questions and then in informal learning as a means to collect best practices. I've recently updated my mental model of how I go about Learning Design, so I thought I'd share. Great question and I'm not sure that I have a good answer.

Enterprise Wiki as Intranet - a success story

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

have many friends and colleagues in organizations struggling to get wikis into the enterprise. Here's some good stuff: "In 2006, Janssen-Cilag completely replaced our simple, static HTML intranet with a Wiki solution. Special note: Nathan didn't use the term wiki. People shouldn't know or care that they are using a Wiki. All that matters is that they can easily browse, search and contribute content. (In fact, after 16 months, only a small set of Janssen-Cilag staff would think of our Intranet as a Wiki. This is a great find!

Do You WANT an LMS? Does a Learner WANT an LMS?

Tony Karrer

Wiki's have exploded onto the scene. I should be working on content for my presentations at DevLearn in October that look at what's next in eLearning. (As a side note: if you are going to DevLearn and are reading this, please drop me a note.) What often happens when systems become very complex is that they begin to get replaced by simpler systems. The tracking is not for me as a learner.

The fourth paradigm

Clive on Learning

As we enter 2006, there are something like 30 million blogs like this one, with more than 30 thousand being discovered daily. And with wikis and other content management tools, you'll not be needing the help of any technical experts. And that's not a bad way to start 2006 Back in November of 2005, I presented a brief history of the great e-learning paradigm wars.

LCB Question for December - Past Year, Present Challenges, Predictions

Tony Karrer

The questions this month are: What will you remember most about 2006? What will you remember most about 2006? believe that I will remember 2006 as one of the more important transition years for me. The revolution in 2006 is possibly even more profound. Some of the more specific memories from 2006: I started my blog in February 2006. And this experience kept coming all during the year with Wikis, and more ( Incredibly Cool! But by far the most vivid memory of 2006 comes from a comment made during a panel that I was moderating on eLearning 2.0.

Their particular implementation of voting, forum, questions, chat, surveys, wiki, etc. One of the more interesting back-stories in Blended Learning / eLearning 2.0 is the classic question of point-solutions vs. suites.
