Design Considerations For Enterprise Social Networks

Collaborative Thinking

While enterprise social networking has been covered extensively in the media and by IT analyst firms, one of the least discussed aspects of the topic has been the issue of design and the potential impact of design on employee adoption of such tools and applications.

Collaborative Thinking

Past incarnations however were perhaps so subtle and housed within a particular use case scenario or application context, that we never really thought about how the model could be leveraged in a very broad and compelling manner. Social network sites ( defined by boyd and Ellison for consumer sites in 2007 and extended by myself (while at Burton Group) to apply to enterprise sites in 2008 ), were instrumental in making follow models more prominent.

Socialprise: The Organizational Design Revolution

Green Chameleon

Via social media and social networking, the stars and the moon aligned and the Age of Aquarius came into view. While the theme of FASTforward '08 was the User Revolution, the various keynote presentations actually presented compelling evidence for an even larger revolution: fundamentally redefining business models. It's about finally overthrowing over-yang'd classic business models with a healthier balance of yin.

About serial mastery and social media

Joitske Hulsebosch

Interestingly enough, that's like reading about myself, when I started as an irrigation engineer, morphed into an organisational advisor and I'm currently a specialist in the design and facilitation of learning processes. The second part of the session was about how social media can play a role to support the new learning / self-directed learning in the context of 'serial mastery'. That social media will have a role to play is beyond doubt.

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. Design of the course. I like the course design and the fact that Stephen Downes ‘walks the talk’ and has been true to his educational philosophy as expounded in his theory of connectivism. This fits with his belief that the role of the teacher is to model and demonstrate.
