I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint. SharePoint is so flexible and the documentation for it is so big and diverse, that a big part of my goals have been to understand the different ways that training organizations are using SharePoint. In my post SharePoint Examples there are some great examples in the comments. In this post, I wanted to capture some of the patterns of use of SharePoint that seem to be emerging. Obviously, there is a spectrum of using SharePoint to support collaboration and using it to publish.
SharePoint Social Learning Experience
FEBRUARY 1, 2010
I had a great conversation last week that sparked an early stage idea for what I think would be a wonderful way for learning and development organizations to leverage SharePoint better. You can find more on this by going to the LearnTrends – SharePoint in Corporate Learning Recordings. could mean for the organization. HP Web 2.0 for Marketing.

SharePoint Fear and Loathing by Learning Professionals
NOVEMBER 18, 2009
I was surprised by the fear and loathing expressed around SharePoint yesterday at LearnTrends 2009. I don’t think it’s the best tool out there, but it likely is the best tool being adopted by your IT department and is part of the Enterprise 2.0 plan in your organization. SharePoint 2010 looks to be a much better product. Certainly we’ll be doing more sessions like SharePoint in Corporate Learning - Free Micro Virtual Conference (see SharePoint Session Descriptions ). And I’ll continue to collect examples of how organizations are Using SharePoint.
LearnTrends Conference is no more
DECEMBER 31, 2011
LearnTrends, the Corporate Learning and Innovation Conference, is going off the air. We also conducted special events, e.g. a session on using Sharepoint to support learning and a 24-hour round-the-world marathon webinar. The conference organizers, Tony Karrer, George Siemens, and I are still chasing after innovation in learning, but we’ve changed channels. Have a great 2012!

Social Learning Tools Should Not be Separate from Enterprise 2.0
APRIL 7, 2010
This could be: SharePoint, Yammer, Confluence, etc. If an organization has SharePoint and InGenius, my preference would be that social interaction occurs in SharePoint. InGenius should integrate into SharePoint. With the recent launch of InGenius by SkillSoft, I believe it’s time again to raise a pretty important question: Where do Social Learning Tools belong?
eLearning Predictions Further Thoughts
JANUARY 27, 2010
That certainly goes along with what we’ve done with LearnTrends and what’s going on with social learning. Some comments: home is better -- @ work there are blocks on our network as to what we can and can't access Firewalls an issue at work Work has faster connections not supposed to access internet at work less network security at most homes, or firewall issues Firewalls at work prevent connections Certainly the issues with access certain sites, e.g., our LearnTrends site that’s hosted by Ning, is an issue. SharePoint We had some very interesting exchange around SharePoint.
Business of Learning
JUNE 15, 2009
corporate universities, and Learning Organizations. Don't I just use SharePoint? This is a very strange time. While increasing amount of concept work and the pace of change puts a premium on learning, the business of learning faces an incredibly difficult time. In the past few weeks, I've had some really eye-opening conversations about the state of Learning as a Business.

2009 Predictions How Did I Do?
DECEMBER 9, 2009
At the same time, organizations who try to create big eLearning 2.0 Strategies will move much slower than organizations who adopt easy to use tools and make tactical use of these tools. Corollary: if you have SharePoint installed, you will be using SharePoint a lot more this year. Some organizations are making big use of it. LearnTrends had a bunch of these.
