Really Cool "3-Minute e-Learning" on Social Networking - Wiki, Social Networking, Social Bookmarking, RSS

Vignettes Learning

The topics on Social Networking and Learning 2.0 Tony Karrer spotted Commoncraft's interesting presentations. I find the snippets from Commoncraft very illustrative of the "3-Minute e-Learning" application points. They are short and wacky but effective. I am sure it is low budgeted as well. are good resources on the basics.

Aha Moments in 2007

Tony Karrer

I wanted to go back and figure out what things really struck me during 2007. I started using del.icio.us and Yahoo MyWeb to save bookmarks - locally saved favorites seem rather limited now. Social networks through my blog or LinkedIn are great ways to get specific help for yourself and for others. The Big Question is back. Boy were they easy to use. I lost the argument.

I immediately thought of the Common Craft videos. I've embedded them below. Are there other good introductory resources? How about for blogs?

ASTD TechKnowledge 2007 - Opening Sessions

Tony Karrer

I'll soon be doing a session on Blogging and Social Bookmarking for Personal and Group Learning. I'm at the opening session at ASTD TechKnowledge ( [link] ). Tony Bingham, President of ASTD, is doing his introduction, and his content is: Web 2.0, personal learning, easy distribution of software (software as a service), video is here now, push to pull, teaching Gen Y (what he calls the netGeneration). What a great setup for my presentation. Thanks Tony. And, it's somewhat surprising to see a relatively slow moving organization, ASTD, driving this discussion. Thorton May is now up.

Cisco - Enterprise 2.0

Tony Karrer

In September [2007] it launched a website that is a microcosm of everything evoked by the phrase "Web 2.0." We're going to use social bookmarking to allow us to take the pulse of the organization," says Jim Grubb, who built the website (and whose day job is putting together John Chambers' demos). I don't know how I missed this, but thanks to Bill Ives for covering it on the FastForward blog - More Web 2.0 Stories, Part One: Cisco Goes All Out on Enterprise 2.0 Better still," he says, "another 10,000 people have added to those ideas." Fantastic. Capture best practices.

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. Using social bookmarking or meme tracking works okay. I wonder if any of the folks you are trying to enable with JIT learning on the job need to go to Google to find out about something, ever bookmark pages they find, write up their thoughts, share those with others. That's multitasking! how can more hear about participating? Senior?

Conference Session Breakout

Tony Karrer

I'm trying to get them to think about the question "How might you use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking, Collaboration Tools in your organization?" Update: 12/19/2007. There has been great discussion in the comments. I wanted to provide a bit more context for this. The session will be workforce learning professionals (an ASTD audience). They will range greatly in terms of the kinds of organizations, their experience. I was planning to do this in small groups and then have them come back together in the larger group. Original post. Uh oh. Now I'm worried.

Emergent Knowledge Management

Tony Karrer

Structure would come from a layer on top such as social bookmarking and digg, and, of course, from search across unstructured content. There would be tools like social networks that would allow us to find people inside and outside the enterprise. 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. For example, see Bill Ives' recent post , and Paula Thorton. I had imagined that we would provide relatively simple, free-form tools like Wikis, blogs.

Search Alert Tips LinkedIn del.icio.us I never know what kinds of things to link to in my blog posts, but definitely if you've not been checking out Ray Sim's recent posts where he dives into how he uses different tools as part of his PWLE. Taking a look at some of his early posts around personal learning and doing environments is also time well spent if you are interested in learning how to learn. I love how Ray translates concepts into practice. He did similar things around informal learning a while ago. Good stuff Ray

Web 2.0 Tools in the Enterprise

Tony Karrer

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 first saw Andrew McAffee's post on uses of Web 2.0 approaches inside of corporations - quite good at identifying some different patterns. Then I saw Bill Ives Is Blogging Inside the Firewall an Oxymoron? The first uses of Wikis is as an easier content management system that houses reference material. It's easier than RoboInfo.

Aide RSS Filtering Tool

Tony Karrer

AideRSS looks at a variety of sources of information including comments, technorati, bloglines, icerocket and del.icio.us to determine what posts are generating the most interest. It provides a widget that allows you to show your top posts for month or year. You can see what it thinks are mine in the right column of the blog. I've been creating similar information manually for a while, so it's nice to have an automated support for it. I've not quite figured out how to take a very large list of blogs, e.g., all edublogs, and have it filter those down.

Spending or Wasting Time on Web 2.0 Tools?

Tony Karrer

Wikis, Social Bookmarking) in the Enterprise: people who use the new tools heavily -- who post frequently to an internal blog, edit the corporate wiki a lot, or trade heavily in the internal prediction market -- will be perceived as not spending enough time on their 'real' jobs This is almost the inverse of the concern that Nick Carr brought up soon after the initial E2.0 I just read a couple interesting posts: The Pursuit of Busyness - by Andrew McAfee and The Enterprise 2.0 Hawthorne Effect and Enterprise 2.0's s Productivity Perception Paradox by Joe McKendrick. tools (ex.

OpenSocial Platform

Tony Karrer

So, as I mentioned before, I'm a big believer in leveraging the knowledge of social connections that exist across the network of different applications (e.g., del.icio.us, flickr, MyBlogLog, Facebook, LinkedIn, your email, discussion groups, etc.). But I'm still back at my same question: I'm currently in process on two Facebook applications that leverage that platform for viral expansion via Facebook, and I'm working on the design of several new or extensions of existing sites/software solutions that will leverage social aspects.

Facebook Platform

Tony Karrer

Something like the social network operating system , maybe. Luis Suarez - How to Boost Your Social Capital with Facebook mentions MyBlogLog. In fact, LMS, Elgg, Flickr, del.icio.us, Wikis, Blogs, Discussion Groups, Amazon, hmmm, the list gets long quickly. It's pretty much the same issue that's been discussed before in terms of currently having Too Many Social Networks? and Multiple Social Networks. Stephen Downes picked up my post on Facebook As a Learning Platform. Because Stephen and I come from such different environments, perspectives, etc.,

Feed Filters

Tony Karrer

I had previously discussed the Aide RSS Filtering Tool - AideRSS looks at a variety of sources of information including comments, technorati, bloglines, icerocket and del.icio.us to determine what posts are generating the most interest. I really like the concept of using different clues about what posts are generating interest to help sort through large numbers of posts. Certainly it's ability to find what are the posts generating the most interest on my own blog is helpful. Instead, AideRSS sends me a bunch of lower rated items along with the top items. It also does this on the site.

Web 2.0 - Consumer vs. Enterprise Use

Tony Karrer

In other words, if facebook and del.icio.us Jack Vinson (in Web2.0 as opposed to Enterprise2.0) pointed me to Ben Gardner's post The difference between Web2.0 & & Enterprise2.0 that discusses the difference in how Web 2.0 acts in the consumer space as opposed to when it's adopted in the enterprise. Ben tells us: Web2.0 vs Enterprise2.0 And there certainly is an issue of adoption inside corporations. I've talked about adoption of web 2.0 tools in the enterprise before in this blog: Adoption of Web 2.0 and eLearning 2.0 Revisited Enterprise 2.0 - What's the PU?

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.) There's been quite a bit of discussion going on around Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) and personal learning environments. We talked about this briefly during a session with Tony O'Driscoll , Brent Schelenker , and Steven Downes at the eLearningGuild. And then over beers. Stephen seems a bit worried in his post that people in the corporate world don't get the concept. They are used to command and control.

Social Networking

Tony Karrer

I've run across a couple of interesting posts recently that seem to have spawned from a Business Week article - Scaling the Social Web. The article tells us that various players are adding social networking features to their sites: A broad array of online players, from major media companies like Viacom to e-commerce providers such as eBay, are adding networking features to their online destinations, letting users create detailed Web identities, connect with people over common interests, share content, and, above all, socialize. all have a social networking aspect to them?
