  Learning webs: Learning in weblog networks

Learning webs: Learning in weblog networks (.pdf) - a paper by me and Sebastian Fiedler, submitted to Web-based communities 2004.

This article explores how professionally oriented Weblog projects support the emergence of loosely coupled learning networks. We provide an overview of the technical infrastructure of this particular form of personal Webpublishing and the social ecosystems that emerge through current Weblog authoring practices. Furthermore, we suggest that some Weblog ecosystems can be conceptualized as learning webs. These learning webs appear to meet the specific needs of knowledge workers for flexible and dynamic learning environments. Some preliminary results of qualitative data collection in this area are shared and some further lines of research are proposed.

This is not the final version (and it's not perfect :), so comments are very welcome.

Later: I changed file from .doc to .pdf, but the link should work.

If you will be linking to the paper, please, use link to this post and not directly to the paper: this way I can trace your comments (I can't see who links to the paper, which is at my company's server).

  PhD dissertation on implementing blogs in manufacturing environment

I don't know if it's supposed to be public. It's availiable on-line; I wrote to the author two weeks back and get no reply, so I'm going to link to it.

Finished PhD dissertation by Chaelynne Wolak - A model for the implementation of a blog in a manufacturing environment (.pdf, 6.7Mb) [via Blogresource]

Includes a lot of practicalities and evaluation data.
