The power of the group: Using wikis in corporate training


Corporate employees are tired of conference calls. Wikis are engaging and easier to navigate. Wikipedia is the most popular wiki out there. A wiki is “a hypertext publication collaboratively edited and managed by its own audience directly using a web browser.”.

Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

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? I wanted to collect a few resources around this topic for use in these discussions.

Conference Wiki Examples

Tony Karrer

Someone asked me for an example of a conference using a Wiki both for organizers during planning, evaluating proposed sessions, etc. I can say that this made pulling things together for the conference significantly easier. Likely the Wiki would be much better for something larger. and for attendees with session pages, participant lists, that kind of stuff. Certainly we did parts of this for Corporate Learning Trends 2007. It was more aimed at the attendee side.

Wikis, Blogs and Social Networks Presentation Materials

Kapp Notes

Here are the handouts and the slides for the presentation that I did on Wikis, Blogs and Social Networks. It was a fun, hands on presentation where many of the attendees had a chance to create a blog and a wiki. This session esd conducted at the Training 2007 Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. I enjoyed the audience and had a lot of really great questions and ideas from the audience members themselves. Thanks for contributing to a great session.

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. The wiki serves as a collaborative repository. I've been advising a community where using an online discussion forum where few people had experience with a wiki. We started a wiki to put knowledge products together. So I'm a little jealous that the community in this article has such an active wiki process.

Wikis in Stages

By popular demand then, I have posted up the PowerPoint presentation I used at the JISC Higher Education Conference in Bristol on Tuesday which has graphic illustrations of all of the stages with some examples and a hyperlink to one of the live wikis.

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). The new way is to use a Wiki and just click the edit button. The article later discusses: Silverthorne: Have you used wikis yourself?

2009 Review

Experiencing eLearning

In April, I presented with my colleagues at the TCC conference on our LMS selection and implementation process. In July, my column on using wikis for ID process documentation was published in the eLearning Guild’s Learning Solutions magazine–my first official published article. Why a Wiki? If I was looking for evidence that live blogging during conferences and webinars provides value, I think this sums it up quite nicely.

Conference Thoughts

Tony Karrer

Hate to post again around better conferences but two things: 1. On the original post - better conferences - there's been a call for moving this to a Wiki. I'm not really sure what the Wiki would look like, but it seems that there's an opportunity to have something along the lines of a Conference Patterns wiki. It would discuss different patterns that can be used for conferences as a whole or elements of a conference.

Online Conferences and In-Person Conferences

Tony Karrer

Lisa Neal asked a great question in a comment on Learn Trends 2008 - Free Online Conference : What do you see as the main differences between in person and online conferences? First let me start with a couple of predictions: Prediction 1 - Online only conferences will rapidly increase and will slow down in-person conferences Prediction 2 - Smaller, targeted, short-burst, rapidly planned conferences will emerge. Or randomly spersed two day conferences.

Conference Session Breakout

Tony Karrer

I'm trying to get them to think about the question "How might you use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking, Collaboration Tools in your organization?" Uh oh, I just saw a post by Donald Clark slamming the use of small group breakouts during conference sessions. Update: 12/19/2007. There has been great discussion in the comments. I wanted to provide a bit more context for this. The session will be workforce learning professionals (an ASTD audience).

I did some early studies into the effects of this when I implemented a programme wide use of wikis in 2006. Earlier, in a 2008 article '' The Good, the Bad and the Wiki '', my colleagues and I had reported that students became very protective over ''their content'' in collaborative spaces such as wikis and took pride in presenting their ideas to a wider public audience. I invited Dan to co-present with me at the ALT-C Conference in Manchester in 2009.

Rethinking conferences

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

When I signed up for Spaces for Interaction: An Online Conversation about Improving the Traditional Conference , I didn’t appreciate how timely the topic would become. Conferences have traditionally provided foundation knowledge for instructional designers, trainers, CLOs, and others in the field. Conference attendance have played a vital role in our professional development. Note : The vintage photos in this post are from training conferences circa 2000.

Social Conference Tools - Expect Poor Results

Tony Karrer

I saw a post by David Warlick - Reaching Out With Your Conference where he suggests that conference organizers should: Consider a social network for your conference. Although I remain skeptical about social networks, social networking is essential, and a few conferences have made brilliant use of them. Give presenters a wiki page to spread out their session descriptions, post presentation commercials, and generate discussion through the commenting feature.

The survival of higher education (3): The Social Web

Learning with 'e's

One of the most popular activities on our wiki based learning programmes was called ‘goldmining’. These were posted up onto the group wiki, and a short summary attached by the ‘gold miner’ to explain what it contained and why it would be useful. Wikis and blogs to a certain extent can achieve this objective, but there can be constraints and disadvantages to this approach, not least a resistance from students themselves who may not wish for these tools to be imposed upon them.
