Tips for facilitators in Ning

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I've been exploring Ning a little further than I did and compared it to other forums like socialgo, collectivex and grou.ps. Gro.ups is open source, has a lot of similar functionalities to ning (and more- you can upload files easily) and is also without advertisements (for free!). The advantage of ning is that it is slightly more attractive in look and feel. Public or private?

How to Harness Informal Learning

If a question is coming up again and again on a wiki or network, it can also help to identify areas where more formal training is needed, making that side of organisational learning more effective and responsive as well. Picture the scene… an increasingly frustrated Bob is trying to work out where a particular field is on a database.

The most popular social media tools include: Facebook, LinkedIn, blogs, Twitter, Yelp, Google Documents, wikis, Skype and online chat (e.g., Ning): Allowing a place for geographically dispersed people to connect and share knowledge. Social media continues to grow, as do the discussions regarding its application within the realm of business and learning. There are various interpretations of social media, whether it is specific to networking and web 2.0 technologies or spans the use of any existing technology that enhances social relationships.

There are also Ning and Wikis but I have not started using these very actively.

Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

Using SharePoint for Event Planning & Organizing Just like we used a Wiki one year and Ning another to support the online conference LearnTrends , SharePoint can be used to manage all types of events, especially internal events. 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. were similar.

Sage Advice on Wiki Adoption: Keys to Success. Best practices for wiki adoption in organizations: Start with what you already do. tags: wiki , community , orgculture. 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. The Many Hats of an Instructional Designer. Find the Champions.

I want to facilitate online discussions but how do I choose the right platform?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

You make an easy choice and open a ning or groupsite. Option 3: Your own social network platform like Ning , group site , grou.ps , Socialgo , collectivex , MINDZ. Ning for instance doesnot have an easy file sharing possibility and groupsite does. It is free (with ads), you do not have to install anything, it is easy to manage, so you're ready in a few minutes. Possibility 1.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

I also heavily use Wikis, especially when the desired result is a set of web pages. I recommend pbWiki as an easy to use Wiki solution. Asynchronous Discussion I personally have found that Ning works great as a tool for all sorts of different needs. Creating a new Ning network is very easy and it gives you a lot of what you would want / need as a work team.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. Question 1 - What are the most likely ways / places your organization might or does use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking or Collaboration Tools? 20,000 wikis with more than 100,000 users. How do you know what gets put onto a Wiki is okay to distribute?

Switch for social media

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I have seen people learn about Ning and putting up a Ning for their family reunions and sports clubs. It is discouraging if you are starting a wiki not knowing what type of wiki to use. I read the book Switch some time ago. Change management is definitely one of my favorite fields! Even though I am now not using the field as consciously as when I was guiding organisational change trajectories, I feel when I work on introducing social media I may apply it too and could improve. But maybe I already do it unconsciously based on my experiences. And Yes! And here it is!

Slow Evolution of Learning Solutions

The Institute didn't include any courses from suppliers such as Learning Tree, but was rich with resources from Books24x7, TechChek (a web-based technical skills assessment tool), internal company communities and knowledge sharing wikis.

Learning Tree reported a decline of 31.2% in earnings compared to 2008.

Online Conferences and In-Person Conferences

Tony Karrer

Ning really makes it easy to do one of these. You can add a Wiki or Aggregator or other things to make this a bit better. If several people were interested in a topic, they can easily pull together a few speakers, create a ning group and set up a quick conference. 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? I have a bunch of random thoughts on this and I'm hoping that folks will chime in. I believe Face to Face Still Matters. Cost is very low.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.
