PBWiki Image Overlay - Yuck

Tony Karrer

I just took a look at my blog and wow, all of my images that I've been keeping on PBWiki for use on my personal Wiki and for use on my blog have randomly started having an image overlayed on top of my images with their logo. You can see two examples below that I've saved from PBWiki and then uploaded to blogger. I don't think I received any kind of warning about this.

What is a wiki? Explained by pbwiki users

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

The folks at pbwiki have done a great job of gathering input from their users. I'm a big fan of pbwiki. There is no better way to explain a wiki than to hear it from those who use it and find it useful. Check it out! This page has many videos covering everything you ever wanted to know about a wiki. elearndev.pbwiki.com

6 Ways to Add Sizzle to Your Classroom

Learning Rebels

You can do this using a variety of very easy to use (and set-up) tools – Free tools such as Diigo , Tumblr , FaceBook, Blogger, PBWiki or Enterprise tools such as SharePoint, Jive , Yammer or SocialCast. Last week I wrote about the “6 Stupid Classroom Rules Learning Professionals Still Use” Apparently I hit a nerve, but what’s important is we had some good debate.

Wikis for Improving Productivity

Experiencing eLearning

I’m liveblogging the webinar Growing in a Down Market with PBwiki. Security levels of PBwiki are sufficient for the financial industry. A: PBwiki has revision tracking built in; they don’t do any other backups on their own. PBwiki does backups on 3 servers plus offsite backups, so businesses don’t need to do it. A: Yes, PBwiki has options for individual users to set preferences for notifications. Q: Fee structure for PBwiki. PBwiki was easy, especially for accessibility for multiple people to help keep it updated. Templates.

Blog or Wiki?

Kapp Notes

I have used Wikispaces and PBWiki and WetPaint. My favorite for support materials and informaiton is PBwiki. The other day, I received the following question in a comment on this blog. I work of a medium size company (200 employees).I I want to create either a Wiki or Blog to share training tips. For example, as a new system rolls-out, I want to set-up a place to share tips, questions, and discoveries, with search capabilities. Do you have any suggestions on the best method (Wiki or Blog) and what product? To me, the scenario that you described would be best served with a wiki.

Collaboration Tools

As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below.

Collaborative Learning Using Web 2.0 Tools - A Summary

Tony Karrer

However, I found little value over using separate tools such as Yahoo Groups and a PBWiki. Background Over the past six weeks, I've been leading a course: Collaborative Learning Using Web 2.0 / eLearning 2.0 Approaches Course Description: The purpose of this course is to give you an opportunity to learn about collaborative learning by participating in collaborative learning. This course is designed to teach how to design and build collaborative learning experiences using Web 2.0 / eLearning 2.0 approaches. Summary This has been a great learning experience for me. See the next topic.

Tools Used

Clark Quinn

delicious, Picassa, Ning, Google Docs/Google Apps, Second Life, Blogger, iGoogle, orkut, FriendFeed, Internal workplace community, PBWiki, Xing, Digg, Friendster (really?), I've been working with Steve Wexler and the eLearningGuild on the eLearning 2.0 survey and report. Some interesting data points are coming out of the study. Right now there are more than 1000 respondents.

Personal and Group Learning Using Web 2.0 Tools

Tony Karrer

For this scenario, I've chosen tools that (a) I'm most familiar with, (b) are provide as Software Services, (c) are free - a big part of the reason I'm familiar with them. :) The tools are: PBwiki - www.pbwiki.com See also - Comparison of Wiki Software Yahoo My Web - myweb.yahoo.com See also - Social Bookmarking Face-Off Yahoo MyWeb better than del.icio.us, rollyo, et.al. We will keep all content on PBwiki internal only. Of course, links to internal PBwiki pages can be seen but not accessed. Tools to Make Reading & Research More Effective. tools apply to this need.

Where are open source learning applications?

Tony Karrer

Having used surveymonkey, blogger, pbwiki and other tools quite a bit - it's even better than open source and even less expensive (open source you need time/dollars to get it up and going). Good post by Harold Jarche - Where are open source learning applications? First, open-source generally succeeds once an application domain is fairly well understood and the feature sets are relatively more stable. If you look at the slow creep up the application stack of open-source solutions (OS, app server, database, CRM), then its easy to see the pattern. Think of it as freeware Captivate. *

Learning Professionals Leaders

Tony Karrer

This makes using something like google docs or pbwiki as an experiment somewhat difficult for the poor, lonely learning professional. On this month's Big Question - Lead the Charge - we are already seeing some interesting responses. The Learning Revolution: Where have all the leaders gone? It's difficult to not agree with everything that's in Tony's post an my short answer would be: yes they should, and the good ones already are. So, of course, I say, great post. :) There are some interesting thoughts in the post, but also Most learning professionals can only do so much. How do I use.

The NEW wiki - elearndev.pbwiki.com

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

I will start using the Corporate eLearning Development Wiki at pbwiki as a compliment to this blog. What's the fastest, coolest wiki to set up and start using? Oh, yeah the graphic is right there. pbwiki.com. I spend a solid 30 seconds getting the elearndev wiki running without even breaking a sweat and so can you. Feel free to help me populate it with great stuff. Go ahead and post a link to your own blog, or just say hi! If you are attending Learning2006 , we will be looking more closely at this tool as well as others.

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.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

I recommend pbWiki as an easy to use Wiki solution. My primary interest here are the methods and tools that allow us to work better as part of remote work teams. In other words - How do we collaborate together in remote work teams to be as effective or even more effective than a team that works down the hall? as well as knowing about tools and methods. You could see where people are working.

TeacherTube - Tell me why we need to GO to school?

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

Good/entrepreneurial teachers could quite easily increase their salaries with simple marketing techniques and open source technologies like Google TeacherTube , blogger , pbwiki , and hundreds of others I put out an idea early this month about teachers putting themselves on the open market. The tools I find, the more I see this as our future reality. TeacherTube is great! And since I haven't done my going-into-the-weekend-video post recently (old one here if you need a fix), I'll give it too ya here. This is from TeacherTub e to illustrate a point. rip, mix, feed.

Firewalls and Security in Software as a Service

Tony Karrer

We had no trouble with our PBWiki. One of the interesting outcomes of my recent course - Collaborative Learning Using Web 2.0 Thus, while we are excited about wikis, blogs, discussion groups, etc., the practical reality is that, unless they already exist somewhere and we can piggy-back on those implementations, we are not going to be able to get them implemented by Corporate IT. Thus, there is real attraction in being able to sign up for hosted services that provide these tools without Corporate IT being involved. The Yahoo Toolbar (for MyWeb ) couldn't be installed on locked desktops.

Both sides now

Jay Cross

And not surprisingly, vendors are encouraging the trend–Microsoft and IBM have added wikis and blogging capabilities to enterprise apps including SharePoint and Lotus Quickr, while Google and upstarts like Socialtext, PBwiki, and Jive Software are luring corporate users with freebie accounts and dead-simple deployment. Warning to IT folks: Mayday! Mayday! Turf is being threatened.

We Need a Wiki in a Wiki

eLearning Blender

There are quite a few hosted solutions that specialize in Media Wiki and I have also been referred to PBWiki and Project Forum. It's obvious that a Wiki would be a great help in my organization. A few years ago we started using SharePoint and now we are SharePoint junkies. The problem is that our SharePoint intranet has grown so immensely that it is now difficult to find information you need in a pinch. The search features are weak and there is now so much information available that we need a quicker way to get an answer in a pinch. So, we know we need a Wiki.
