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?

Social Learning Has Its Place…And Informal Learning Does Too.

Social Learning

Two weeks ago Jane Hart wrote an article titled, Social Learning: to be or not to be? , in which Jane expresses her dislike of the term Social Learning (big S, big L).  That being said, I believe Jane’s first misstep occurs when she uses the term Social Learning (big S, big L).  Social media can be an accelerant for social learning, both in formal and informal settings.

The Future Of Learning Design

The eLearning Coach

If you are intrigued by the future of learning design, you won’t want to miss the second half of this interview with Karl Kapp. Coach: What types of challenges do newer technologies, such as mobile and podcast, present to the instructional designer? Having said that, another challenge confronting instructional designers is to “think outside the classroom” paradigm.

Are you playing the role of the Subject Matter Expert instead of the Instructional Designer?

Janet Clarey

My response went something like this: We wouldn’t expect a layman to design a bridge given an IKEA set of instructions. Those who know how to design instruction soundly are the ‘engineers.’ They are, by design, built around limiting theories. The wiki was built the same way Wikipedia is. Social bookmarking was on its own server.

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

E-Learning Provocateur

In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0. However, I think the diagram misleadingly suggests an evolution of instructional design. Why, in the midst of ever-advancing learning theory and progressive instructional design, does such rampant instructivism persist? Wikis act as non-linear knowledge banks to be mined as necessary. News feeds, podcasts, blogs, wikis and discussion forums. Social and professional networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Instructivism is dead. Slippery slope.

Theory-informed design tips

In my previous article , I proposed a Taxonomy of Learning Theories to organise a few of the myriad of theories into some semblance of order, and to assist instructional designers in using theory to inform their work. In this article, I go one step further by listing specific, practical instructional design tips that are informed by those theories. Behaviourist design.

For some time now, I have an evaluation report of an organization that has experience with the introduction of social media (like wikis and blog) in the organization since 2009. The design of the project The initiative for the project came from the Research and Development department. The aim of the project was that increased use of social media within the organization would support the development of a global network: information would be better available in one central place (through wikis) and transparency about what is going on within the organisation would be enhanced.

Organizations can do the same.
