Our team uses a wiki to document our design and development processes, something I wrote about in a short column for the eLearning Guild’s Learning Solutions magazine. This weekend I was imagining a conversation between two people about the benefits of a wiki. This overlaps quite a bit with the reasons in my article, but it’s a more fun presentation with Xtranormal.
I kept this conversation pretty generic; I think these reasons apply to documentation for any kind of group, not just instructional designers or e-learning developers. This also focuses exclusively on the “why” of wikis. If you want more ideas on the “how,” check out my article in Learning Solutions. (Registration is required to read the articles, but even free Associate members get this benefit.)
