LMS Wikis: Unharnessed Potential
JANUARY 10, 2011
The Wiki is one of the most under-utilized and underestimated feature of an LMS. That’s because, most of us haven’t gotten around to realizing what the Wiki is capable of, and hence the potential of the Wiki feature is unharnessed. This post is an endeavor to explore the various uses of the LMS Wiki. What’s so great about wikis anyway?

With the Encyclopedia Britannica abandoning its 244-year-old printed version in response to the dominance of Wikipedia, and Britain’s education minister calling for a “wiki approach” to designing the curriculum for schools, wikis deserve a role in employee training and learning.

Dont Waste Your Time

worked with some amazing people in the Business School to develop innovative (for us, at least) assessment techniques (group working, case studies, multimedia, time constrained papers , Box of Broadcasts , etc.) Customisation, for me, has been key to my own development and understanding of what kind of learning technologist I want to be.

How to revamp your learning model

and The ILE and the FLE in harmony , I advocate the development of a virtual Informal Learning Environment (ILE) to work in tandem with the Formal Learning Environment (FLE) to support both the learning process and its administration.

Why a Wiki?

Our team uses a wiki to document our design and development processes, something I wrote about in a short column for the eLearning Guild’s Learning Solutions magazine. This weekend I was imagining a conversation between two people about the benefits of a wiki. kept this conversation pretty generic; I think these reasons apply to documentation for any kind of group, not just instructional designers or e-learning developers. This also focuses exclusively on the “why of wikis. Posted in Wikis.

Blogs and wikis and other social media made an appearance, even though at the time they were still fairly nascent in compulsory education. If I was to take a risk and suggest possibilities for the next 5 years of development, I might be right on some of my predictions, and hopelessly wrong on others, but here we go. Much more learning will be done outside of the classroom.
Wikis as Assignments

In one of his graduate courses in education, as an assessment activity, he asks students to contribute to a wiki-book that he and his colleagues have developed: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology. The concept of asking students to contribute to a wiki that will remain for future users is very interesting to me. In Mike's example, he created a privately owned wiki for this purpose; however, Wikipedia could be used as well. The reason I am making this posting is two-fold. Mike's eBook is excellent from a practitionerâ€™s point of view!
