Tony Karrer

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?

Experiencing eLearning

Wiki Wiki. In this session, we will share a collaborative wiki created by a self-organized, self-managed group of online graduate students. This virtual learning community took the initiative to form a study group and share strategies for completing course problem-solving assignments.

Wiki working

I published two journal articles recently on the use of wikis in teaching and learning, and I'm making them available here on this blog. I have also published several book chapters recently on the use of wikis in education which I will make available here over the next few weeks - so bookmark this space! This paper explores the potential for wiki-type open architecture software to promote and support collaborative learning through the use of student-created content.

Now that the learning is finished, it's time to get right to work, right ? Read on for what to do after the formal training to ensure that the real learning begins. Use wikis.

SCORM Compiant WIKI - Xerceo

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

Xerceo is a new WIKI that just hit my inbox. I've been thinking about this type of editable "course" ever since my first introduction to wikis. The Learning Object proponents have been trying this for years and I haven't really seen it work effectively. I'm guessing each wiki page is like a learning object that is tagged. Is informal/collaborative learning really going to be formalized in systems in useful way?

Do you know your E-learning Buckets?

Integrated Learnings

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. 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. The term e-learning covers a wide swath of teaching and learning using digital media.

Social Learning for Associations: What to Expect in a Modern LMS

Talented Learning

Social learning. It is essential for any association learning management system (LMS). Yet no one can define “social learning” in a nutshell, because there is no universally accepted meaning. As LMS consultants , we’ve helped many different types of associations define their learning technology requirements. This means many associations are wrestling with fundamental questions at the intersection of social and learning: One social system or two?

Sharing spaces
