Social Bookmarking Social Networking Wikis RSSAs background for an upcoming presentation, I wanted to create a page that provides background resources that explain various eLearning 2.0 tools. I immediately thought of the Common Craft videos. I've embedded them below.

Web feats 1: Social bookmarking

Learning with e's

There are many social web tools that I have adopted into my every day practice. Over the next few days I want to list my top social web tools (my Web feats) - the ones I probably couldn't do without. Here's the first in the series: Social Bookmarking.

Social Networking

Tony Karrer

I've run across a couple of interesting posts recently that seem to have spawned from a Business Week article - Scaling the Social Web. Hasn't eBay had social networking features for a long time? And doesn't Flickr (images), del.icio.us (bookmarks), etc. all have a social networking aspect to them? The point is that its probably natural for lots of sites to have social networking type features and functions for visitors.

Social Network Operating System

Tony Karrer

This is a good definition of what we need from an open layer that allows a transportable, open social graph that we can leverage across various applications. Social networking sits on top of this and provides interfaces that allow us to interact.

Really Cool "3-Minute e-Learning" on Social Networking - Wiki, Social Networking, Social Bookmarking, RSS

The topics on Social Networking and Learning 2.0 Tony Karrer spotted Commoncraft's interesting presentations. I find the snippets from Commoncraft very illustrative of the "3-Minute e-Learning" application points. They are short and wacky but effective.

Sharing

I wanted to reflect a little on my own ‘sharing’ here, and try and split the sharing from social media, if possible. My network or followers and those I follow grows and changes all the time, therefore my exposure to new ideas or tools does too.

Web 2.0 Tools, Networks and Community (Individuals vs. Collective)

Tony Karrer

Traditional online community mechanisms (email lists, groups) are joined by a wide variety of publishing mechanisms (blogs, social bookmarking, wikis, flickr, etc.) This forms a big network of people linked first through content and eventually directly (in person or via social networking). Nancy raises the question of the fact that traditional online communities were bounded by the tool and the new big network is not contained within the tool.

Mmmmmmm, delicious

Spark Your Interest

I have used the social bookmarking service delicious on a fairly superficial level up to now, I would say. . I was interested in how I could share my links and when I was a manager of 12 trainers/instructional designers, the benefits of a pooled set of favourites/bookmarks, tagged and annotated made me salivate. Now I’m ready to take it to the next level and really try to embrace the socialness of it. Now to decide: Who should be in my network?

Siemens describes connectivism as “the integration of principles explored by chaos, network, and complexity and self-organisation theories&#. If we view chaos through the lens of Network Theory , we see the universe as a massive, complex network.

Work Literacy Launch

I'm very happy to announce that Michele Martin and I have just launched Work Literacy - a network of individuals, companies and organizations who are interested in learning, defining, mentoring, teaching and consulting on the frameworks, skills, methods and tools of modern knowledge work. When discussing new(ish) tools like blogs and social bookmarking, and discussing things like advanced search techniques, there's a gap in knowledge work skills.

Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Tony Karrer

The questions she raises are: Is the edupunk ideology saying that the use of social media in commercial learning management systems is an assault on the very philosophy of learning 2.0? If you have a population of learners who have already adopted tools (such as blogging and social bookmarking) for themselves that are different than the corporate tool (the LMS) do you ask them to move? For example, having social bookmarking that allows links to be kept private to a group.
