Wikipatterns - Wiki Patterns | Education Tech & Tools |

"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. 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: -

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.

World Language Resources

World Language Resources | Education Tech & Tools |
"The World Language OER team is seeking OERs that provide opportunities
for teachers and learners to address each of the Maine Learning Results through:
  1) vocabulary and grammar practice in writing, reading, speaking and listening activities,
  2) authentic language experiences including collaboration between teachers, learners, and native speakers
  3) exposure to native speakers and culture
  4) technology sites that would assist in world language teaching

... This site was developed as part of a federally funded grant to identify open educational resources for World Language teachers in Maine. The phases of the grant are from April 2010-June 2011." - from the source


NOTE: While this resources is targeted to the Education community, keep in mind that most corporations and even government agencies are engaged globally. Therefore, there are resources linked here that not only assist people with language skills: speaking, reading, and writing, but also emphasize exposure and understanding the culture of the native or source communities.
