Screencast of the Week - SocialText

TechSmith Camtasia

I picked this screencast from SocialText as the Screencast of the Week for a several reasons. Plus, I like that they used a screencast to show off SocialText in action - I can see how it works before I download it. This week's Screencast of the Week came to me by way of a Twitter contact, Alan Lepofsky. I love the use of SmartFocus and Callouts ! Click the screenshot below to start the video. And, if you're on Twitter, we'd love to hear from you!

Every week over on G+, I''m on a panel hosted and organized by the wonderful @LizCpher and @davidchris via Stop.Think. Social. One recurring theme is that "social" isn''t something you do but something you become. . I think this is a critical point. This is what separates social systems from other enterprise-wide systems. No one ever had to ask about "becoming" a payroll system.

Is Multiple Activity Streams the Way Forward for Enterprise Platforms?

ID Reflections

I am sure those days are not too far away and social business platformslike Jive and SocialText are improving by leaps and bounds. As an enterprise community manager, I am often faced withvaried user questions and needs. One that has been surfacing on and offrecently is around the ability for more granular filtering to find relevantcontent. Before I move on let me briefly explain how Jive --whichpowers our social platform--works.

Senge, Learning Organizations and asking a question.

Mark Oehlert

I don't work squarely in the learning and training field anymore and am quite happy being in the social media for the enterprise space and working for an awesome company like Socialtext. A few days ago I tweeted a question about why Peter Senge never seemed to be mentioned in learning circles along with folks like Bloom, Gagne, and Kirkpatrick. : #crowdbooster told me that I was RT'd 7 times on that tweet and reached a potential audience of about 18,000 people.


Marcia Conner

Consumer-facing Twitter and corporate-ready Socialtext Signals , Socialcast , and Yammer (to name a few) are noteworthy, evolutionary, and crazy cool. As Twitter goes public, I thought it might be useful to revisit with you why I think so much of Twitter and the short bursts of correspondence it sets free. Just don’t call it revolutionary. It’s all about the tools, and it’s not about the tools. To see how I use Twitter each day, visit me @marciamarcia.

5 Ways to Kick-Start Great On-the-Job Sales Training


Get set up on Yammer , SocialText , Jambok , Clearvale , or an equivalent network. Is there a more critical function in most companies than enabling sales professionals to excel their jobs? After all, a high-performing sales force is the lifeblood of most organizations including non-profits. Most businesses realize this already — but many often allocate sales training resources in the wrong areas.

You know, the whole duality of Man thing. #socbiz

Mark Oehlert

Social is not reliant on any one tool, but often tools (like Socialtext for instance ;-)) can lend scale and speed and additional capabilities to efforts to make more of the organization visible and transparent.

Collaboration Tools

As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below. I would expect the document to continue to grow and change, but thought it would be worth having it available in a text format as well (so I can find it when I need it).

Get Started in Social Learning in 5 Steps (Without Spending a Dime)


Have that discussion on Yammer or Socialtext or other similar, free software that allows people to talk to each other. Social learning is not new, but we still do not know what it is. Albert Bandura wrote a book called Social Learning Theory in 1977, and he didn’t even have a Facebook account. Who would have thought? Bandura wrote that people learn through observation of other people. So social learning is about watching others and doing what they do? That was social learning then.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

Steve Nguyen: What I Learned at DevLearn 10


Kelly and her team have developed a wonderful internal social media application they call the “Buzz” (based on SocialText). I remember leaving DevLearn 2009 and thinking, “This was THE BEST conference experience I’ve ever had.” At that moment, I knew a return trip was in order in 2010. Coming into this year’s edition of DevLearn, I had different expectations that last year. In 2009, it was all about bringing home those two or three nuggets of information that I could apply right away.

Tools I Use

Marcia Conner

In addition to Twitter, I also use Socialtext Signals , Socialcast , and Yammer with different organizations I work with. Yesterday I participated in two fabulous webinars, each with a different focus, yet both with social learning themes. During each I was asked about some of the tools I use personally to get the most from social media–and ultimately learn as much as I can.

Both sides now

Jay Cross

And not surprisingly, vendors are encouraging the trend–Microsoft and IBM have added wikis and blogging capabilities to enterprise apps including SharePoint and Lotus Quickr, while Google and upstarts like Socialtext, PBwiki, and Jive Software are luring corporate users with freebie accounts and dead-simple deployment. I was reading the collaboration section of a magazine geared to IT professionals when I came upon an article titled Cat-Herding Nightmare.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

It was designed to be a small to medium size group discussion, but because the room was large it was very challenging to do that successfully. I discussed a bit of these issues in First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions.
