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?

Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

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. were similar.

Social Media vs. Social Learning

We Need a Wiki in a Wiki

eLearning Blender

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. believe a Wiki would be a great addition to our systems so that it is easier to access commonly needed information quickly. So, we know we need a Wiki. The problem is that we will not be upgrading to SharePoint until the end 0f 08 and we can't afford to wait that long.

Enterprise Content Sucks & You’re Not Doing Anything to Change It


How do we unglue ourselves from the age of SharePoint, overgrown wikis, and static files like PDFs and Word Docs? It’s no surprise that enterprise applications that have been built with the end user in mind have made the strongest impact on our workday productivity. Slack has changed the way we communicate; Google Drive simplifies document creation, and Concur allows for quick, on-the-road expense submissions. All of these advancements have not only streamlined their respective processes, but also made the technology easy to access on mobile, via the cloud. Trends

Do you know your E-learning Buckets?

Integrated Learnings

In the past I've used systems like wikis, Lotus Notes, and SharePoint to serve as knowledge management systems. By Jonathan Shoaf. I've discovered recently I don't like the term e-learning. This is because I recently had to go through the process of understanding what salary you pay someone who is an e-learning developer. It turns out that it varies dramatically depending on who you ask. This is because everyone has a different idea of what e-learning is and what it takes to develop it. So if you tell me you are an e-learning expert, it means nothing to me. Self-Paced Learning.

But I don't see why it shouldn't be possible for everything else (the web articles, videos, software demos, PDFs, decision aids, wikis, forums and the like) to be handled through whatever intranet software an organisation has - SharePoint or something similar.

The 3 Major Pitfalls of Static Content


There is email, chats, intranets, wikis, training universities, SharePoint, content repositories, file sync and shares, and other proprietary solutions… the list goes on and on. There’s no shortage of options when it comes to enterprise technology aimed at helping employees learn, communicate, and share static content. This might seem like knowledge heaven with information available everywhere you turn, but in reality, it’s overwhelming. No doubt you’ve encountered at least one of these scenarios. Maybe it was sent over a chat program? But was it on Chatter, Slack, or Yammer?

Are apps the future of e-learning?

Clive on Learning

Mobile devices are perfectly adequate for entering short textual entries to forums, wikis, blogs, etc. so all we're waiting for is mobile versions of existing tools such as SharePoint, Moodle and the like. I came fairly late to the multi-touch iOS/Android/W7 Mobile world, having been stuck on a 2-year contract with a Nokia smart phone that was great compared to the phones I'd had before, but which I now realise was hopelessly behind the game. How can this be? Well, apps tend to do one job really well with the minimum of fuss. They can usually be accessed with a single touch.

The first part of the solution could somewhat be evaluated by observing some of the AARs and watching the informal learning taking place as they discuss their problems and solutions, however, the second and third points would be difficult as it would be hard to sit at someone's desk all day to see if they are using the wiki and microblogging tools. questions asked on the microblogging tool by employees who could not find a Lesson Learned in the wiki that matched their problem.
