Social Bookmarking for Link Sharing

Tony Karrer

On TrDev, we've been discussing the sharing of links via forum posts vs. social bookmarking tools such as del.icio.us. I've discussed this before: Social Bookmarking Tricks for Group Learning Personal and Group Learning Using Web 2.0 See her recent post about Second Wave Adoption and her follow-up post on Time to Experiment. She lets folks know to use the del.icio.us Of course, the question is whether people will adopt this.

Web feats 1: Social bookmarking

Learning with e's

There are many social web tools that I have adopted into my every day practice. Over the next few days I want to list my top social web tools (my Web feats) - the ones I probably couldn't do without. Here's the first in the series: Social Bookmarking. There are a number of other social bookmarking services available including Diigo , Connotea (academic users), and Citeulike (for referencing) and recommender sites wuch as Stumbledupon , Reddit and Digg.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

You can find all sorts of interesting resources via eLearning Learning around Adoption. Not surprising, the terms most closely associated with Adoption are Adoption of Social Software and Adoption of Enterprise 2.0. There are some great resources on this such as: Ten tips for choosing & using social software Adoption of Web 2.0 Revisited Social Media - The Challenge of Adoption - Rob’s Dummies Guide The secret sauce to successful Enterprise 2.0

I'm really amazed at the gap between people who store their bookmarks online 53% vs. those who share bookmarks online: 23%. Most people who store their bookmarks, don't share them. Twitter adoption is higher than I would have thought. Some things that jumped out at me: Clearly Education is ahead of Corporate adoption, otherwise the numbers are fairly well aligned. Then to compare with adoption by people in Government.

Social Media And Learning

In this article, I’m featuring a wonderful interview with successful social media expert, Jane Hart. She provides compelling reasons to implement a social and collaborative environment as part of workplace learning.

I've talked about adoption of web 2.0 tools in the enterprise before in this blog: Adoption of Web 2.0 Facilitating Adoption of Web 2.0 Adoption in the Enterprise - It's Personal The main points across these posts are: Adoption is first and foremost based on personal value (or more accurately perceived usefulness ).

MOOCs and Unbundled Training

Your Training Edge

There are many excellent resources out there, which in the context of a MOOC can be curated and shared through social media, social bookmarking, wikis, and so on. Online learning modules are not completed with a degree or certificate but also include the ability to share one’s increased knowledge on a social network. The education and training worlds are fond of buzzwords, too many of which tend to be old ideas wrapped in shiny new packaging.

Personal, collaborative, and informal learning methods are emerging that leverage tools such as blogs, wikis, social bookmarking, and RSS readers. We will look at adoption trends and examples of eLearning 2.0. ASTD TechKnowledge 2009 is coming to Las Vegas in January.

MOOCs and Performance Support

Your Training Edge

Through discussion boards, social media, virtual collaborations, and so on, learners develop their own personal learning networks that last long after the course is over. These networks, which may contain fellow learners, trainers, and even experts in the field, remain accessible via Twitter and other social networking sites and provide additional places employees can turn for answers to questions and solutions to problems.

However, it interestingly left out a lot of what I said was missing in my post - Yahoo MyWeb better than del.icio.us, rollyo, et.al. My claim back then was the Yahoo MyWeb has some features that made it better for a lot of corporate users, and while I hate to argue for its use, the fact that two years later after Yahoo acquired del.icio.us (delicious), they've not addressed these issues is a surprise.

Peer Learning and MOOCs: Using Technology to Maximize Employee Learning

Your Training Edge

There are many reasons for organizations to adopt peer learning: People remember more of what they learn from one another than from listening to a lecture or reading a document. However, as more training moves online and starts to incorporate social media, better tools are becoming available to facilitate, track, and perform quality control on peer learning. We have previously explored the technology-enabled learning tools that facilitate social interaction in MOOCs.

Social Media included Twitter, Screenr videos, and Diigo social bookmarks. This time does not include ongoing learner support using social media and Intranet pages. Limited staff participation in the social media elements, specifically Twitter. Due to the less-than-expected use of Twitter among staff, there was less participation in the social media elements. Also, I would find a way to incentivize its adoption by staff. eLearning Cyclops.

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

E-Learning Provocateur

Whether in a classroom setting, via an online course or otherwise, the resident subject matter expert (SME) within the organisation typically provides the learner with a programmed sequence of knowledge, carefully scaffolding their learning and – to adopt a cognitivist view – construct a basic framework of knowledge in the learner’s mind. Social and professional networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Instructivism is dead.

Lurking is Not a Static State

ID Reflections

At this point, I also "serendipitous-ly" stumbled upon a couple of conversations recently that touched upon lurking (this is why I love social media). And it looks like the folks at TELUS share a similar experience; while they may not have achieved just yet 100% penetration with their social tools, the ones who are making active use of them are helping everyone else get enough value, perhaps not just producing valuable content, but digesting it as well.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

Existing Adoption At the very start I asked the audience for examples of where they were currently using these tools as part of learning solutions. I discussed the fact that there was a common Adoption Pattern that went from personal adoption to work groups to organization. So while the session focused on organizational adoption, it likely was the case that you should look for targeted adoption opportunities.

Social media - Right now I am in the midst of encouraging staff to use social media as a learning and teaching tool. Social media provides access to an immense amount of informal learning and direct access to experts outside the organization walls. My advice, be patient, keep encouraging its adoption, tout the positive results and give it time to catch on. Start selling the powers to be on the benefits of more open access to social media. eLearning Cyclops.

Beware of Social Learning Backlash

eLearning Weekly

I’m finding out that the old adage, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink&# has some major significance when it comes to introducing social learning (specifically, social learning tools) at an organization. In fact, even worse things can happen if you don’t market your offerings correctly… When introducing social learning tools and concepts, it’s easy to get excited and anxious to share our findings.

First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions

Tony Karrer

Almost no one was familiar with social bookmarking. Oh, and I just saw that Kevin Jones posted his thoughts around the session: TK08 - Tony Karrer and Implementation of Social Learning. People did not offer up as many examples of where they'd like to use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking as I anticipated. Good adoption.

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

I recommend adopting their tools and their security mechanisms. Yammer (internal twittering) is almost impossible to explain to someone who has no experience with any social networking (and probably not with anything more than email lists). As a side note, I think selling Twitter/Yammer is harder than selling social bookmarking and wikis. Social bookmarking and wikis are often a smart replacement with obvious side benefits.

OpenSocial Platform

Tony Karrer

So, as I mentioned before, I'm a big believer in leveraging the knowledge of social connections that exist across the network of different applications (e.g., del.icio.us, flickr, MyBlogLog, Facebook, LinkedIn, your email, discussion groups, etc.). The questions are: Do you leverage Facebook because of installed based and easier, known viral adoption model even though you are locked in? Can you justify building out your own social graph (friends, groups, etc.)?
