LMS Wikis: Unharnessed Potential

Upside Learning

The Wiki is one of the most under-utilized and underestimated feature of an LMS. That’s because, most of us haven’t gotten around to realizing what the Wiki is capable of, and hence the potential of the Wiki feature is unharnessed. What’s so great about wikis anyway?

Why a Wiki?

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.

Dissertation Wiki

Tony Karrer

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. So, if they provide comments via the Wiki doesn't that make a lot of sense.

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.

Conference Wiki Examples

Tony Karrer

Someone asked me for an example of a conference using a Wiki both for organizers during planning, evaluating proposed sessions, etc. Likely the Wiki would be much better for something larger. and for attendees with session pages, participant lists, that kind of stuff. Certainly we did parts of this for Corporate Learning Trends 2007. It was more aimed at the attendee side. I can say that this made pulling things together for the conference significantly easier.

Wiki Course Authoring

Tony Karrer

In my Ten Predictions for eLearning for 2008 , I said - Wiki + SCORM + Add-ins will become more common for easy authoring. Not sure if he saw my post, but I was just reminded by Tim Seager from Xerceo about their Prescribe tool that provides: Full Wiki, RSS functionality that is SCORM conformant for tracking and managing competencies. It's horribly cryptic, you can't tell what's happening and it defeats the whole point that I see in using a Wiki for authoring.
