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.

Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint. SharePoint is so flexible and the documentation for it is so big and diverse, that a big part of my goals have been to understand the different ways that training organizations are using SharePoint. In my post SharePoint Examples there are some great examples in the comments. In this post, I wanted to capture some of the patterns of use of SharePoint that seem to be emerging.

We Need a Wiki in a Wiki

eLearning Blender

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. I believe a Wiki would be a great addition to our systems so that it is easier to access commonly needed information quickly. So, we know we need a Wiki.

Enterprise Content Sucks & You’re Not Doing Anything to Change It

Inkling

How do we unglue ourselves from the age of SharePoint, overgrown wikis, and static files like PDFs and Word Docs? It’s no surprise that enterprise applications that have been built with the end user in mind have made the strongest impact on our workday productivity. Slack has changed the way we communicate; Google Drive simplifies document creation, and Concur allows for quick, on-the-road expense submissions.

But I don't see why it shouldn't be possible for everything else (the web articles, videos, software demos, PDFs, decision aids, wikis, forums and the like) to be handled through whatever intranet software an organisation has - SharePoint or something similar. This post continues my commentary to the Learning Insights 2012 Report produced by Kineo for e.learning age magazine. The ninth of ten 'insights' is that ‘Learner journeys need to become seamless'.

Are apps the future of e-learning?

Clive on Learning

Mobile devices are perfectly adequate for entering short textual entries to forums, wikis, blogs, etc. so all we're waiting for is mobile versions of existing tools such as SharePoint, Moodle and the like.
