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?

I did some early studies into the effects of this when I implemented a programme wide use of wikis in 2006. Earlier, in a 2008 article '' The Good, the Bad and the Wiki '', my colleagues and I had reported that students became very protective over ''their content'' in collaborative spaces such as wikis and took pride in presenting their ideas to a wider public audience.

Effective Web Conferences – 41 Resources

Tony Karrer

I wanted to follow-up 19 Tips for Effective Online Conferences with some additional resources that relate to this topic. I primarily used the eLearning Learning and Communities and Networks sites and used Conference , Online Facilitation of Conferences , Online Interaction in Conferences , Moderating Online Interaction , and others. When developing PowerPoint slides to use in web conference training follow these guidelines: Simplify content. The names of these people came from the participants list of the conferences.

Kapp Notes

Here are the handouts and the slides for the presentation that I did on Wikis, Blogs and Social Networks.

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.

Wikis in Stages

Learning with e's

I have had a lot of interest about the Wiki Activities 5 Stages Model I presented recently in Plymouth, Bristol, and Utrecht, Holland. By popular demand then, I have posted up the PowerPoint presentation I used at the JISC Higher Education Conference in Bristol on Tuesday which has graphic illustrations of all of the stages with some examples and a hyperlink to one of the live wikis. There is also some initial research data to support the use of wikis for collaborative and reflective learning. Any feedback from interested persons will be gratefully received.

Tomorrow I'm in Bristol on the invitation of the JISC to present two papers reporting on recent research we have been doing on social software at their regional support centre conference. One of my papers will detail my wiki activities 5 stage model. See the wiki activities page of one online group for an example here. The model starts with Exploration (where students are finding out about their new learning environment, discovering the do's and dont's and generally orientating themselves on the wiki).

How Wikipedia Works and Wikis in the Enterprise - HBS

Tony Karrer

At the bottom of the article, the author interviews Andrew about the use of Wikis in the enterprise. But an encyclopedia is only one of the things you can build with wiki technology. In my experience, Wikis often start (and sometimes end) as an easier-to-use replacement for simple web publishing (an intranet that's easy-to-edit). The new way is to use a Wiki and just click the edit button. My strong belief is that: Anytime you think about creating a web page, you should probably think whether it wouldn't be better to make it a Wiki. But it is still easier.

#40years of educational technology: Social media

Learning with e's

Other tools such as wikis, blogs and podcasts also began to be used in education, at first tentatively, and then as embedded features in various programmes of study. 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. 2006 was also the year Twitter was launched.

Conference Thoughts

Tony Karrer

Hate to post again around better conferences but two things: 1. On the original post - better conferences - there's been a call for moving this to a Wiki. I'm not really sure what the Wiki would look like, but it seems that there's an opportunity to have something along the lines of a Conference Patterns wiki. It would discuss different patterns that can be used for conferences as a whole or elements of a conference. I just saw a fantastic post - Do We Need NECC that discusses a lot of the same issues. Maybe someone wants to pick it up.

Online Conferences and In-Person Conferences

Tony Karrer

Lisa Neal asked a great question in a comment on Learn Trends 2008 - Free Online Conference : What do you see as the main differences between in person and online conferences? First let me start with a couple of predictions: Prediction 1 - Online only conferences will rapidly increase and will slow down in-person conferences Prediction 2 - Smaller, targeted, short-burst, rapidly planned conferences will emerge. Now, don't get me wrong, I still very much like to do in-person conferences. It's hard to get all the way to an in-person conference.

3 Signs Your Training Department is Instructional Design Deficient

eLearning Brothers

If you attend training webinars or conferences, share what you learned during your monthly team meetings. Set up an internal blog/wiki page and have your teammates subscribe to it. Have you ever worked on an eLearning program only to discover your hard work was in vain? The powers that be handed you content and told you to get to work. Well, what happened? Guess what?

Social Media in the Classroom [INFOGRAPHIC]


Although adoption is slow (for instance, only 15% of teachers find value in Facebook, Wiki, and other social networks), time will only show that it will rise. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that social media has changed more than just how we pass the time, it has now infused itself into formal learning channels. I think this is a thin line, but if done correctly, could prove valuable.

E-Learning Provocateur

We tinker with software, experiment with new ideas, attend conferences, and join local meetups. A variation of this theme is the 90-9-1 principle, which maintains that in an online space that empowers users to create and edit content (eg an intranet or wiki), only 1% of the members will create new content, 9% will edit it, leaving the remaining 90% who consume it. The list is endless.

50 Ways to Lever Learning

The Peformance Improvement

Professional conferences – attending local, regional, national, and international meetings that have presentations of content relevant to one’s work; learning comes from reflecting on that content and discussing application with others. (My apologies to Paul Simon.). In a learning culture , formal training is just one of many methods used to facilitate employee learning.

Formal learning doesn't have to be all that formal

Clive on Learning

Naturally I prefer my own model, as described in my book The New Learning Architect (and written, before you ask, without any exposure to 70:20:10), which defines four contexts: formal (courses), non-formal (other proactive developmental approaches, including on-job instruction, coaching, communities of practice, webinars, conferences, reading, etc.), There are various models which attempt to describe the various contexts in which learning can take place at work. on-demand and experiential. Anyway, the point of this post is not to argue about models and both will do for this purpose.

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?" Uh oh, I just saw a post by Donald Clark slamming the use of small group breakouts during conference sessions. 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. Original post. Uh oh.

Set up a course wiki or another collaboration area where learners can ask questions and share their knowledge with one another. Gamify.
