Wiki as repository for a virtual community

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Through a comment on a blogpost by Nancy White I found this article about a virtual community using a discussion list (listserv) in combination with a wiki.

How Wikipedia Works and Wikis in the Enterprise - HBS

Tony Karrer

At the bottom of the article, the author interviews Andrew about the use of Wikis in the enterprise. But an encyclopedia is only one of the things you can build with wiki technology. In my experience, Wikis often start (and sometimes end) as an easier-to-use replacement for simple web publishing (an intranet that's easy-to-edit).

Conference Thoughts

Tony Karrer
