Wikis for Improving Productivity

Experiencing eLearning

I’m liveblogging the webinar Growing in a Down Market with PBwiki. We use the wiki for our team, but I wonder what we can do to be more effective with it, as well as how we can help other departments in the company. Security levels of PBwiki are sufficient for the financial industry. A: PBwiki has revision tracking built in; they don’t do any other backups on their own. A: Yes, PBwiki has options for individual users to set preferences for notifications.

This makes using something like google docs or pbwiki as an experiment somewhat difficult for the poor, lonely learning professional. talks about how learning organizations must transition from the perspective from a training group being an expendable cost-center to a learning capability that's central to organizational effectiveness and performance On this month's Big Question - Lead the Charge - we are already seeing some interesting responses.

Tools to Make Reading & Research More Effective. For this scenario, I've chosen tools that (a) I'm most familiar with, (b) are provide as Software Services, (c) are free - a big part of the reason I'm familiar with them. :) The tools are: PBwiki - www.pbwiki.com See also - Comparison of Wiki Software Yahoo My Web - myweb.yahoo.com See also - Social Bookmarking Face-Off Yahoo MyWeb better than del.icio.us, rollyo, et.al. We will keep all content on PBwiki internal only.

Remote Collaboration

In other words - How do we collaborate together in remote work teams to be as effective or even more effective than a team that works down the hall? I recommend pbWiki as an easy to use Wiki solution.

Firewalls and Security in Software as a Service

Tony Karrer

We had no trouble with our PBWiki. The good news is that there are lots of these services in most categories, and thus, the best advice is: Test any service you are thinking of using in different locations and desktops to make sure that you are able to use the service effectively given firewall restrictions.

There are quite a few hosted solutions that specialize in Media Wiki and I have also been referred to PBWiki and Project Forum. Now I just need to figure out how I am going to measure its effectiveness. It's obvious that a Wiki would be a great help in my organization. A few years ago we started using SharePoint and now we are SharePoint junkies. The problem is that our SharePoint intranet has grown so immensely that it is now difficult to find information you need in a pinch.
