Wikipatterns - Wiki Patterns

Wikipatterns - Wiki Patterns | Open Research & Learning | 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/

ghbrett's insight:

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.

Google Apps for Education: When Will It Replace the LMS? -

Google Apps for Education: When Will It Replace the LMS? - | Open Research & Learning | Scoop.it

"History professor Jonathan Rees called it an “uncharacteristically subtle post.” When he posted an excerpt from his university’s report on its Blackboard usage, he didn’t have to say much: “I think all I want to do here is point out that all the things professors use Blackboard for here most (as well as a few of the things that not many people use Blackboard for) can be done for a lot less money than whatever our Blackboard license costs. Sometimes they can be done for no money at all.”" from source: http://mfeldstein.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This post was linked to from the Google+ Community discussing if Google Apps for Education would replace the Learning Management System. The post itself is brief and points to other resources. If you read it, be sure to have a look at the comments below. Some of the comments are positive and others are doubtful. One wonders where the balance is.
