Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources
JULY 13, 2010
I’m involved in several discussions around how to use Wikis as part of learning solutions.

SharePoint in Office 365: the Good, the Bad, the Brilliant and the Ugly
SharePoint and Assessment
NOVEMBER 3, 2011
What is Office 365 SharePoint Online like when you use it for real? My company has been using Office 365 in anger for a month or so now, here is a review of the SharePoint component from a general business user perspective with a bias to using it for learning. Most of the good points come from standard SharePoint: Make site and pages easily. For example, I run our annual data security competency tests in my company, and use a SharePoint list to track when people are due for a test (see here for more on this). All the rest of SharePoint is there too. The Good.

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.

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. 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.

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
JULY 8, 2016
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.

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.
