Wikipatterns - Wiki Patterns

Wikipatterns - Wiki Patterns | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Looking to spur wiki adoption? Want to grow from 10 users to 100, or 1000? Applying patterns that help coordinate people's efforts and guide the growth of content, and recognizing anti-patterns that might hinder growth - can give your wiki the greatest chance of success.

 

Wikipatterns.com is a toolbox of patterns & anti-patterns, and a guide to the stages of wiki adoption. It's also a wiki, which means you can help build the information based on your experiences! Beyond this site, there are many other additional resources." from source: - http://www.wikipatterns.com/

This is a good source of information about the use of Wikis in general. The two targets are People and Adoption. The site presents the positive aspects as well as barriers or negative aspects of Wikis. A reader or person interested in developing online communities would gain from viewing some of these patterns as useful for other instructional design, social media, online communities, communities of practice,  or online media in organizations.

Multiscreen Patterns | precious, strategic design & visual language

Multiscreen Patterns | precious, strategic design & visual language | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

  "During the last years, our design studio has been involved in many different projects – from designing mainly websites and desktop software in our early days, to smartphone apps, prototypes for TV interfaces and more recently, applications for tablet devices.

 

  Working for all those devices was interesting and challenging. Not just because of the diverse screen sizes and input methods, but because we learned in our user research how different the contexts are in which these gadgets are used.

 

  ... To make these scenarios more tangible for ourselves and to communicate them better to our clients, we started documenting patterns we noticed. These patterns and associated examples were the core of many workshops we did in various constellations: with brand managers, advertising professionals and design students.

 

  Today we like to share this part of our research work: patterns for multiscreen strategies. It’s been a handy reference when discussing solutions for digital products and services. We hope you’ll find them useful too." - from the source

 

NOTE: This is an interesting article about planning for using content on multiple screen sizes or multiple platforms. There are two links: 1) to analog (paper) templates that can be used to design layout for that size screen and 2) User patterns that can help identify users in varied scenarios. A worthwhile read for anyone considering designing content for laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
