Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources
JULY 13, 2010
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?

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
JANUARY 30, 2011
Many are using Microsoft SharePoint, which includes discussion threads, wikis, and blogs, or using other similar collaboration tools. Wiki Instructional Design Social Network Collaborative Learning Social Media Social Learning Twitter Web 2.0 By Dean Hawkinson. Most of us have Facebook accounts and collaborate with friends, family and colleagues through this media. We also use tools such as Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media.

We Need a Wiki in a Wiki
NOVEMBER 20, 2007
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. I 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
JUNE 29, 2016
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?
APRIL 3, 2013
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.

The 3 Major Pitfalls of Static Content

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.

Are apps the future of e-learning?
Clive on Learning
NOVEMBER 8, 2010
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.
