Blog>> Taxonomy and Search Patterns for Search and Discovery

Green Chameleon

So you have built and implemented a taxonomy but search is still not returning the desired results. What do you do? Taxonomy alone is limited in what it can do. Search alone is also limited. Together, they become much smarter.

There are No Things. There are patterns.

Jenny Connected

For me, this brings to mind Stephen Downes’ work on the theory of connectivism and an early article that he wrote on his blog in 2009, where he wrote: [Knowledge] is not an object (or objective), it is not discrete, it is not a causal agent.

Blog>> Method Knowledge

Green Chameleon

One of the knowledge types we take pains to highlight during a knowledge mapping exercise is method knowledge - the type of knowledge that a team builds up over time and that which makes them effective. It is knowledge that is seldom captured because people are either unaware of how valuable that knowledge is, or they do not see capturing it as a priority.

Blog>> Knowledge Manager Lifespans Getting Longer?

Green Chameleon

In 2008 I ran a global survey on knowledge manager professional development and experience. It found that only 29% of knowledge managers had been in their role for more than 4 years, and only 25% were confident of moving on to another KM role. The average “lifespan” among respondents was something like 2.5 years. Nick Milton recently surveyed his KM contacts on LinkedIn and found that knowledge managers average lifespan seems to last about 6 years – which shows progress!

My experiences of the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC to date

Jenny Connected

It would be a short or long piece about the content, the way it’s being organized, the way the learners did or did not interact with each other or how we reacted in blog posts and on social media. Although there is a course site, where information relating to the course is aggregated, participants have been encouraged to engage from their blogs. I have always preferred working on MOOCs from my blog. I have also appreciated course participants’ thought-provoking blog posts.
