Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

I thought about that story when I saw Dave Cormier's Connectivism Wiki or MOOC (Massive Online Open Courses). The philosophy is: I'd suggest we follow the ADD DON'T TAKE AWAY model of wiki building. So, I asked Dave via Twitter " Wow do you build a giving culture on a wiki?"

My NTEN Chat 8/12/08

SocialFish

We had a great discussion about wikis and how to try and get people to participate more in them - perhaps give artificial deadlines, or specifically purposeful tasks. My favorite takeaway advice was that we should all "leave a trail of wikis" - in other words, if you use them all the time, others will get it and use them too.

Wikis for Curriculum Development and Instructional Materials

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

I've mostly used wikis as a personal portfolio and have participated in community or collaborative wikis facilitated by others. I've been a participant in design discussions about wiki projects, but never the main architect. The materials would be used for face-to-face workshops where adult learners there would use the wiki as a resource - and perhaps add to it. Her audience is new to wikis, so this is an excellent example of a way to scaffold to comfort levels.
