LMS Wikis: Unharnessed Potential

Upside Learning

The Wiki is one of the most under-utilized and underestimated feature of an LMS.

This post is an endeavor to explore the various uses of the LMS Wiki. What’s so great about wikis anyway?

eLearning Tools - Wikis, Blogs and More

Tony Karrer

Found via Donald Clark - Business Week article - The Wiki Workplace that discusses use of Wikis and Blogs and particularly their use. At Xerox, Chief Technology Officer Sophie VanDebroek turned the process inside out by setting up a wiki that would allow researchers in the R&D group to define collaboratively the company's technology strategy. Wikis, blogs, and other tools will arrive in the workplace whether companies are ready or not, as younger employees tend to develop their own self-organized networks that cut across traditional corporate divisions.

She also made one comment that was very interesting: To the consternation of my rather conservative university, I am submitting the dissertation in the form of a wiki (although - strictly speaking - is it really a wiki if I don't open it up to the community to co-author, which of course I can't do in this instance). First, I can't imagine trying to do a dissertation wiki. So, if they provide comments via the Wiki doesn't that make a lot of sense. In fact, wouldn't it be safer to have it as a Wiki where you could see what each person did? But that aside. on it.

In one of his graduate courses in education, as an assessment activity, he asks students to contribute to a wiki-book that he and his colleagues have developed: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology. The concept of asking students to contribute to a wiki that will remain for future users is very interesting to me. In Mike's example, he created a privately owned wiki for this purpose; however, Wikipedia could be used as well. The reason I am making this posting is two-fold. Mike's eBook is excellent from a practitioner’s point of view! Have a look it.

Blog or Wiki?

Kapp Notes

want to create either a Wiki or Blog to share training tips. 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. The wiki allows for multiple people to share tips and to all contribute their discoveries and ideas in a single location. suggest you set up contribution "standards" so everyone understands the best method for contributing to the wiki. Include examples and start the wiki so people don't come to the wiki and see a blank page. Web 2.0
