Corporate Social Bookmarking Tools

Tony Karrer

I was just asked on twitter about use social bookmarking tools that work behind the firewall. Here are the social bookmarking tools that I commonly cite in presentations: BEA Pathways Cogenz Connectbeam - perl based, very similar to I thought I had blogged about this before, but I'm not finding the post.

Social Bookmarking behind the Firewall

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

Instead of having a closed committee of “experts&# sitting in a room deciding how to organize the information you rcv, YOU, and communities of practice you belong too, decide, tag, and bookmark. Techcrunch introduced me to Connectbeam. Connectbeam is just another company convinced that the activities of this new web generation will be a productive part of how we do business. It’s another tool that democratizes the web.

Firewalls and Security in Software as a Service

Tony Karrer

Tools - A Summary - was general consensus around: Software as a Service is Great for Learning Professionals inside Corporations Firewall restrictions still pose a problem for SOME services Security is a concern, but generally should not stop use The reason that Software as a Service is so attractive is that it is often hard to get Corporate IT to spend time on getting even simple software packages set-up and even harder to get them to agree to support these packages.

Show me what others are interested in, as with social bookmarks like Diigo and Delicious. You can’t afford to replicate Facebook or Google behind your firewall. Social network – for online conversation, connecting with people, and all of the above functions.

SMBs & Social Media (Sum Total). Other notes: Definition of social media vary among attendees (~160). Noted main difference between main stream media and social media. Social media enables everyone to publish/access info inexpensively. Where we are today: Primary forms of social learning technologies used in corporations today appear to be e-mail, live online learning (Web conferencing), threaded discussion, and collaborative content development.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

Question 1 - What are the most likely ways / places your organization might or does use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking or Collaboration Tools? IBM I only briefly mentioned how other organizations are adopting these tools in a big way - The Wall Street Journal - June 18 2007 - social networking at IBM 26,000 registered blogs. Firewalls - You can certainly install tools behind the firewall.

Web 2.0 Tools in the Enterprise

Tony Karrer

Then I saw Bill Ives Is Blogging Inside the Firewall an Oxymoron? I'd also suggest that part of the reason that I always suggest that Wikis will get faster uptake than things like Blogs and Social Bookmarking is that Wikis can be a better replacement for something else without much behavior change. I first saw Andrew McAffee's post on uses of Web 2.0 approaches inside of corporations - quite good at identifying some different patterns.

Web 2.0 - Consumer vs. Enterprise Use

Tony Karrer

In other words, if facebook and are already being used, then try to align your strategies with these tools rather than trying to provide behind-the-firewall solutions. These policies should be along the lines of IBM's blogging guidelines instead of being one of the 41% apparently ban Facebook and other such applications via firewall rules. Jack Vinson (in Web2.0 as opposed to Enterprise2.0) pointed me to Ben Gardner's post The difference between Web2.0 &

Social media - Right now I am in the midst of encouraging staff to use social media as a learning and teaching tool. Social media provides access to an immense amount of informal learning and direct access to experts outside the organization walls. My New Social Bookmarking Tool.

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

Yammer (internal twittering) is almost impossible to explain to someone who has no experience with any social networking (and probably not with anything more than email lists). As a side note, I think selling Twitter/Yammer is harder than selling social bookmarking and wikis. Social bookmarking and wikis are often a smart replacement with obvious side benefits. We wrapped up our free elearning webinar on Models for Learning in a New World.

LMS vendors: R u hearing us?

eLearning 24-7

30% vendors offer at least one type of social media – from my latest LMS directory. Dozens of LMS vendors, had typos on their web pages, zero screens of the system, links that went nowhere and two kicked up my Firewall warning of possible privacy collection and one had a Trojan Horse (I use a hardcore firewall and A/V). Many made it nearly impossible to find their social media to follow, friend or check out their social bookmarks. Social Media.

A Speedbump for Social Learning

eLearning Weekly

or Social Learning, there’s a relatively new wave of tools and technologies that allow people to communicate and collaborate in a surprisingly easy and effective way. Some of these tools and technologies include wikis, blogs, social bookmarking, and social networking. It’s very easy to find blog and wiki software to install behind-the-firewall, where your organization’s information will be safe. Whether you call it Learning 2.0, eLearning 2.0,

PLE - PWLE Discussion Contiunes - Corporate vs Personal and IP Rights

Tony Karrer

Clearly this is a different use of PLE's than those outside the firewall, for free rangers, and for learning from everything of personal interest. then shouldn't you make sure you provide these tools now rather than having tools adopted that are outside the firewall and personally owned where you will lose the content if the employee leaves? In other words, maybe all we do is keep a copy of all RSS feeds, social bookmarks, wiki pages, etc.

Here are the sessions I attended: Positioning your Careers in Social Networking and Collaborative Learning (Ray Jimenez). I know many companies are interested in Facebook, but are afraid to let their employee data outside of their firewall. I think the role of the LMS will shift to become less important in the next few years, as people realize the value of social learning tools, such as wikis, tagging, social bookmarking, blogging, etc.
