Wiki Course Authoring

Tony Karrer

In my Ten Predictions for eLearning for 2008 , I said - Wiki + SCORM + Add-ins will become more common for easy authoring. It's horribly cryptic, you can't tell what's happening and it defeats the whole point that I see in using a Wiki for authoring. A Wiki should make course authoring extremely easy and even easier to make updates. This is something I described a long time ago in: Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups

Clear about the concept

Clark Quinn

One was casually mashing up a couple of essentially incommensurate ideas. If you’re going to claim authority, don’t depend on broken concepts. I went to hear a talk the other day. It was about competency-based education (CBE) for organizations. Ostensibly. And, while I’m now affiliated with IBSTPI , it’s not like I’m a competency expert. And maybe I expect too much, but I really hope for people to be clear about the concept.

With the ability to easily create learning applications that seamlessly mash-up the best content, and with the tools available, it is no wonder that some innovative vendors have already seized on this new opportunity. The core to this concept is having a repository of granular learning assets aligned to the standards from which a teacher can mash-up and select from, to individualize the instruction.

Digital Participation

Your Training Edge

These kinds of participation entail affiliation with the online platforms like Facebook, or games; the activities where participants are able to develop new kinds of expression through fan-fiction writing, zines, mash-ups, collaboration, where learners are able to work with one another to complete tasks or develop skills and knowledge, like when using gaming, Wikipedia and other activities and where users shape the flow or distribution of media via forms like blogging and podcasting [1].

The authors dive into tons of amazing studies, surprising results, and real-world examples of good learning in action. Make a mash-up of practice. You might have to look it up. The authors describe their research with middle school kids in which they offered spaced quizzes to a subset of eighth graders. Just as spacing out recall adds challenge to study, mixing up different topics or “interleaving,” stresses the brain and improves learning results.

Incredibly Cool! Vision of Future of Application and eLearning Development

Tony Karrer

Now go visit my previous article: Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups. Last week I moderated an event on Web 2.0 where we had speakers from IBM, Google, Microsoft, Sony and others talking about what it really means (especially for corporations). One of the most interesting things was the Enterprise Mashup demonstration by Rod Smith at IBM. He basically showed how a business-user would be able to wire together an application.

Will Blogs, Wikis, RSS, Mashups be Used in Corporate eLearning?

Tony Karrer

See: Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups I saw another post from Dave Boggs, Has The Blogging Trend Begun To Fade, Even Before It Ever Got Started In Corporate Training / e-Learning Environments? In this post, Dave unfortunately lumps together blogs, wikis, mashups, rss feed together (probably because eLearning 2.0 and web 2.0 often lump them together).

Authoring Tools. GenY have grown up with rich-media and have a significant difference in attitude from the Gen X. People will want to create and communicate and do this quickly and without “due process” Authoring tools will need to support mashups, but I suspect that tools themselves need to be created as a mash-up of tools. Each constituent tool in the final mash-up relate to a specific media (text, audio, video etc.)

Social Learning

Clark Quinn

A long time ago I posted about Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups where I suggested that there would be easy ways to add social dimensions to our courses. I still think there's value in having these kinds of widgets available to us to include in our authoring. There's also a difference here in terms of who authors the content. Most of the social learning start-ups look for users to author a lot of the content.

Future Platforms for eLearning

Tony Karrer

I've seen the Content Authoring Research Report from the eLearningGuild that suggests what tools are being used in 2005 and it suggests that most content is being authored using fairly traditional tools such as Flash, PowerPoint, Dreamweaver, Captivate, Lectora. This is somewhat like Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups and Typepad Widgets - A Sign of Things to Come in eLearning Authoring / Developement.

And I would suggest that there are a couple of interesting implications: Web-Based, Niche Authoring Tools I've claimed for a while (see Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups and Incredibly Cool! Vision of Future of Application and eLearning Development ) that the age of desktop / installed heavy authoring tools are going to lose out to web-based authoring tools that focus on particular niches and allow composition.

ARTICULATE NON EST REX – 3 REASONS HIGHER ORDER LEARNING IS BEYOND THE MOAT

Wonderful Brain

What I call ‘low-level’ elearning is the product of 3 conditions; the desire to move content to delivery as fast as possible, using the most basic software tools from which this can be accomplished, and lastly if something important is being tee’d up online but the development tool isn’t up to the task, the organization puts up fierce resistance to deliver learning in a different medium. I harbor a patent dislike for packaged authoring tools like Articulate.

This is due to the social context in which they are growing up. They are growing up as more than passive consumers of media. For example, my daughter has set up a Finsta account. This group trusts friends and family more than traditional authority figures so top down practices fail as ways to engage. They are also growing up while the Internet of Things is changing how we live. Who are these people?
