Want to explain to someone (a grandmother like me, for instance?) the benefits of using a wiki? A great example of homegrown content was highlighted on the SAP internal wiki recently and I wanted to share here with the community. The video was produced by Lee and Sacha LeFever of Common Craft Show and explains brilliantly “in under 5 minutes” what the advantages of a wiki are.
Looking at this great content reminded me that our community has diverse talents (think Mario Herger and his video abilitites (very professional) or maybe a bit less staged but nevertheless very funny: Craig’s Rantings…: Geek Cooking Episode 1).
We need to have better, more creative, entertaining ways to take our “noobs” (that’s newbies in Urban Dictionary Language) and help them understand how useful, fun, helpful and productive all these new collaboration tools are. A group of us: “Gali, Audrey Weinland, https://weblogs.sdn.sap.com/pub/u/251791586 [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken],Frauke Hoffmann, and myself were looking for ways of enhancing Getting Started. Gali has done an excellent job of organizing contents in the wiki getting started pages.
Create a Great Guide
Let’s see what kind of fun content our community can create to welcome the uninitiated. Let’s also have the community rate the quality of these learning demos.
Could be a great way for the undiscovered new member to shine.
