Typically this involves many of the same aspects as above: document sharing, calendar, discussion, resources, links, profiles, contacts, etc. They had profiles, directories, blogs to help foster sharing between spread out teams.

Experiencing eLearning

Observations from the beginning of a high school project with Ning, Animoto, and Flickr. Most of the insight is around how Ning facilitates conversations between students and lets the teacher join the discussion. Students are engaged with Ning; they are personalizing their spaces and giving each other constructive feedback. Anyone can swap an writing pad for a blog, there is no value in that.

LearnTrends: Personal Knowledge Management

Experiencing eLearning

These are my live blogged notes from Harold Jarche’s LearnTrends session on Personal Knowledge Management. When he moved to consulting and didn’t have an IT department and those resources, he realized he had to do something different. Idea from Will Richardson: what do you do when you read a blog post and come across an interesting few sentences? For example, he now makes clearer blog titles so in 3 years he can find info easily, rather than being witty in his titles. Makes it explicit by posting to his blog. My side comments are in italics.
