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?

Wikis in eLearning 2.0

social media can, and are being used to enhance, extend and enrich learning in higher education. The first paper, by Lim et al, focuses on new digital literacies and asks whether social practices are lagging behind expectations. Wikis in eLearning 2.0

Stewart Mader points us to Sarah Denman's look at the four groups most likely to be involved in a wiki or other enterprise 2.0 From Masie's recent social learning survey it appears that there is a lot of adoption by learning professionals. Why are we not seen as a player when it comes to Wiki or Enterprise 2.0 implementations. The list is: IT HR - and no it doesn't include learning or training - it's more the compliance side of HR.

Dissertation Wiki

Tony Karrer

Basically, it's about the use of Social Media by learning professionals. She also made one comment that was very interesting: To the consternation of my rather conservative university, I am submitting the dissertation in the form of a wiki (although - strictly speaking - is it really a wiki if I don't open it up to the community to co-author, which of course I can't do in this instance). First, I can't imagine trying to do a dissertation wiki.

Blog or Wiki?

Kapp Notes

I want to create either a Wiki or Blog to share training tips. Do you have any suggestions on the best method (Wiki or Blog) and what product? To me, the scenario that you described would be best served with a wiki. The wiki allows for multiple people to share tips and to all contribute their discoveries and ideas in a single location. I suggest you set up contribution "standards" so everyone understands the best method for contributing to the wiki.

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.

We also use tools such as Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media. In a lot of cases, we are using internal corporate social media tools to collaborate. This has included reading some books, attending some webinars, and talking with other learning professionals about how they are making social media work in a learning environment. So why not plan for social collaboration within your instructional design? --4-- By Dean Hawkinson.
