I’m involved in several discussions around how to use Wikis as part of learning solutions.

SharePoint in Office 365: the Good, the Bad, the Brilliant and the Ugly

SharePoint and Assessment

What is Office 365 SharePoint Online like when you use it for real? My company has been using Office 365 in anger for a month or so now, here is a review of the SharePoint component from a general business user perspective with a bias to using it for learning. Most of the good points come from standard SharePoint: Make site and pages easily. For example, I run our annual data security competency tests in my company, and use a SharePoint list to track when people are due for a test (see here for more on this). All the rest of SharePoint is there too. The Good.

Are apps the future of e-learning?

Clive on Learning

Mobile devices are perfectly adequate for entering short textual entries to forums, wikis, blogs, etc. so all we're waiting for is mobile versions of existing tools such as SharePoint, Moodle and the like. I came fairly late to the multi-touch iOS/Android/W7 Mobile world, having been stuck on a 2-year contract with a Nokia smart phone that was great compared to the phones I'd had before, but which I now realise was hopelessly behind the game. How can this be? Well, apps tend to do one job really well with the minimum of fuss. They can usually be accessed with a single touch.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.

Here comes the wikis in force? Sharepoint is everywhere. There are many bottlenecks in the 07 version but since many organisations have sunk time, money and resources in getting it to work for them, they will continue to do so with the 2010 version of it, which by the way is getting rave reviews. Talking about Sharepoint, Stephanie Lemieux urged not to let go of information architecture issues when implementing Sharepoint sites. Content types, columns and lists are crucial in ‘correcting’ the user experience in Sharepoint. made some new friends as well.
