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?

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

E-Learning Provocateur

Wikis act as non-linear knowledge banks to be mined as necessary. News feeds, podcasts, blogs, wikis and discussion forums. Instructivism is dead. Gone are the days of an authoritarian teacher transmitting pre-defined information to passive students. In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0. Students morphed into participants , empowered to seek new knowledge and understanding for themselves, in the context of their own unique, individual experiences. Fast forward to today and connectivism is all the rage.

Tool Set 2009

But hopefully 2009 will be the year when that begins to change. Sue's description of a personal learning network is: Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) are all about using web tools such as blogs, wiki, twitter, facebook to create connects with others which extend our learning, increases our reflection while enabling us to learn together as part of a global community. If you care about being relevant and valuable in 2015, you had better be making moves in 2009. What should be in your tool set? What are the most important methods to adopt in addition to the tools?

Web 2.0

Kapp Notes

Some highlights: Using a wiki to house class materials for a class of 30 students saved between 10,000-12,000 sheets of paper. Participants loved having the wiki. This presentation discussed how Sharepoint is used to provide Web 2.0 tools for large organizatons. Rachel and Nick discuss using Sharepoint as a Web 2.0 product within their organizations. technologies for online learning.

Workplace learning in 10 years

E-Learning Provocateur

As staff familiarise themselves with blogs, wikis, RSS, YouTube and Twitter, and as more tech-savvy Gen-Y’s & Z’s join the organisation, the demand for self-paced, self-directed learning will accelerate. To answer this question, I’ve organised my own two cents’ worth under six major banners… 1. Learning development should be no different.

Why are we not seen as a player when it comes to Wiki or Enterprise 2.0 implementations. ownership? eLearning Technology.

eLearning Strategy

Tony Karrer

Providing a set of tools (wikis, blogs, discussion groups, etc.) I spend a fair amount of my consulting time working with large organizations to help define how they will apply technology to particular business / performance / learning needs. This is either in terms of specific needs, e.g., improve customer satisfaction, or as part of an overall eLearning strategy. This is very hard.

Blog or Wiki?

Kapp Notes

want to create either a Wiki or Blog to share training tips. Do you have any suggestions on the best method (Wiki or Blog) and what product? To me, the scenario that you described would be best served with a wiki. The wiki allows for multiple people to share tips and to all contribute their discoveries and ideas in a single location. suggest you set up contribution "standards" so everyone understands the best method for contributing to the wiki. Include examples and start the wiki so people don't come to the wiki and see a blank page. Web 2.0

Do Microcourses Have a Place in Workplace Learning?

Upside Learning

Just-in-time search support by letting employees search in company’s knowledge databases (wikis, blogs, forums) using their mobiles. From Wikipedia – Microlearning deals with relatively small learning units and short-term learning activities. Generally, the term ‘microlearning’ refers to micro-perspectives in the context of learning, education and training. More frequently, the term is used in the domain of E-learning and related fields in the sense of a new paradigmatic perspective on learning processes in mediated environments on micro levels.

Wiki as repository for a virtual community

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Through a comment on a blogpost by Nancy White I found this article about a virtual community using a discussion list (listserv) in combination with a wiki. The wiki serves as a collaborative repository. I've been advising a community where using an online discussion forum where few people had experience with a wiki. We started a wiki to put knowledge products together. Though it was hard to get people to work on the wiki, it was very attractive to some because of its structure as compared to the discussion forum that may look very chaotic.

The Future of the LMS

Bottom-Line Performance

Instead of discussion forums, these new learning management systems provide blogs and wikis to foster collaboration. With the addition of informal learning opportunities, hopefully, learners will stop thinking of the LMS as “the place to go to get to the training&#  and start viewing it as “where I can find what I need to know.&# The LMS becomes a true repository for learning, housing job aids, coaching guides, and courses, along side videos created and uploaded by learners and informal wikis run by study groups. When I dug a little further, I found Sloodle.

Wikis at Work

Tony Karrer

Found via Big Dog Little Dog - It's information collaboration - discusses the use of Wikis within organizations. Some of the points it makes: Gartner predicts that by 2009 half of companies worldwide will be using wikis Examples of use Acronyms and industry terminology, best sales practices, case studies, client information, meeting minutes. Certainly, I've been finding that Wikis are a really great replacement for stuff that we've previously done as web pages or using Robo Info/Help. Just makes updates that much easier.

Why Wikis? An example.

There Is No Chalk

Tony Karrer has an instructive posting about wikis. He writes about how often wikis are ill-considered as an elearning tool, primarily due to fears surrounding the insertion of errant or low-quality information by individuals who have little or no expertise. In fact, The Wired Campus has an opinion piece that makes very salient points about new learning technologies such as wikis, and the as-yet. Tags: quality crowdsourcing tools wiki elearning content

With the best will in the world, very little collaborative learning occurs through the use of wikis and blogs, whilst social networks generally connect people but often superficially, and can also isolate. I'm excited by the future. It's something I have always looked forward to! But what will e-learning look like in a few years time? world, and how it might differ from current learning.

Informal Learning

Bottom-Line Performance

The study, conducted in March, found that 44% of employees want to see collaborative tools like blogs, forums and wikis developed, while just 32% of HR professionals agree. A recent survey that found that employees (in the UK, at least) are more interested in innovative learning and collaboration than the HR and training people in those same institutions. More HR professionals (42%) than employees (38%) wanted to see more classroom learning. Having been in both learning and HR roles, (not to mention being an employee for most of my career), These results make perfect sense to me.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: I Heart My Wiki

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.

I had a conversation by email with someone I really care about that probably came off a bit bitchy, a bit holier-than-thou…it you can have just “a bit&# of either of those traits.  Fast and inexpensive.

LMSs that kick ass: ElementK’s KnowledgeHub

Janet Clarey

These tools are powered by Jive Clearspace and provide integrated access to Wiki’s, Blog’s, and Discussion Forums so that they can be included in a development plan, returned in integrated search results, and linked to from our e-learning courses. Q: What drove your decision to incorporate social media tools into your LMS? A: Sue Rodeman - We believe the way learners want and need to learn are changing. Additionally, a Wiki or Forum could be used to allow sales reps – who are typically geographically disbursed - to ask questions, share success stories, and collaborate in general.
