Wikis are also helpful when you choose for a face-to-face training lectures, go to the wiki and enter and look up for the information.

Web portals of these wikis are oftentimes are </li></ul><ul><li>cited as wikis(2). </li></ul><ul><li>For instance (2): The one of best glorious wikis are </li></ul><ul><li>Wikipedia. </li></ul><ul><li>Business enterprise or Organizations set up wikis </li></ul><ul><li>actually for Knowledge Management, to feed </li></ul><ul><li>efficacious and Inexpensive Intranets(2). </li></ul>
  6. 6. BRIEF HISTORY OF WIKIS <ul><li>Developed by: </li></ul><ul><li>The First Wiki was created in 1995, By Ward </li></ul><ul><li>Cunningham , primitively delineated Wiki Wiki Web, as “the </li></ul><ul><li>simplest online database that could possibly work”(2). </li></ul><ul><li>Quote from (2). </li></ul><ul><li>In the year 2000 nupedia , a peer reviewed wiki, has a </li></ul><ul><li>limited run and also in the year 2001 Wikipedia, an open </li></ul><ul><li>encyclopaedia is founded by jimmy Wales and Larry </li></ul><ul><li>Sanger(1) </li></ul>
  7. 7. WIKIS WHY <ul><li>An assemblage that is volitional to vindicate and recognise with the social group of thoughts is a Wiki. It has every right to embellish in which guardedly exclusive in what it will be(2). </li></ul><ul><li>This wiki is: persevering, heedful, dissimilar, people with different open thoughts and put in their years of acquisition in what is needed, what is not(2). </li></ul><ul><li>When volunteer’s deviate and Withdraw from their works, they are replaced by others. It’s really wonderful thing that it still works even with out automatically implemented control(2). </li></ul>
  8. 8. WIKIS ROLE IN ORGANIZATIONS <ul><li>Wikis role at organizational level fall in its way of approach and maintenance.(2) </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis in organization are secured, database friendly, instant rollback, authorised and easy for the end users.(2) </li></ul><ul><li>For instance: if we go for any knowledge management software’s used by certain organizations like Interspire knowledge manager software which is a wiki software used by for its HR activities, sales, marketing, integrated searches.(2) </li></ul>
  9. 9. WORKING OF WIKI IN ORGANIZATION <ul><li> “ Interspire Knowledge Manager It is installed on your web server, </li></ul><ul><li>either locally (intranet) or remotely (website)”(2) </li></ul><ul><li> “ It runs off the most popular </li></ul><ul><li>combination of open source </li></ul><ul><li>technologies in the world: PHP </li></ul><ul><li>and MySQL”(2) </li></ul><ul><li>“ When wiki is accessed by Your staff, the changes are saved to a highly optimized MySQL database. Interspire Knowledge Manager includes a built-in backup system which means it takes just a few clicks to create a copy of your wiki, which you can then store offsite for safe keeping”(2) </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>During the browser-based installation only The MySQL database is created for you. automatically during the browser-based installation wizard.(2) </li></ul><ul><li>We spent weeks of time on database optimization before the release of Interspire Knowledge Manager.(2) </li></ul><ul><li>It is great to hear that you know store tens of thousands of articles in your wiki and they are editable, searchable and viewable, in contrast with speed of light.(2) </li></ul>
  11. 11. KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT <ul><li>“ All of life and business is a game of odds. Just as HR policies increase the odds of employee retention, and good Customer service increases the odds toward repeat business, knowledge management is about increasing the odds toward knowledge being transferred, utilized and [contributing to] innovation” – Larry Prusak(3). </li></ul><ul><li>Executive director, IBM Corp.'s Institute for Knowledge Management (Glasser 1999)(3). </li></ul><ul><li>In order to conquer the commitment of increased “effectiveness, efficiency, and competitiveness,” many organizations have chosen to implement KM practices and systems (Schultze and Leidner 2002, p. 2) (3). </li></ul>
  12. 12. ENTERSPIRE KNOWLEDGE MANAGER <ul><li>Interspire Knowledge Manager is a wiki software used by the organizations(2). </li></ul><ul><li>Wikipedia is the best known wiki(2). </li></ul><ul><li>The features of Interspire Knowledge Manager that permit you to run your own enterprise-grade company wiki(2). </li></ul><ul><li>Included features are(2): </li></ul><ul><li>Quick edit you can make changes to information or articles in real-time, while you go through them. </li></ul><ul><li>Article history when the changes were made by who and at what time can be seen. </li></ul><ul><li>Integrated search you can search articles for yourself and for your staff at ease. </li></ul><ul><li>Groups Admission levels and transferrable authorisations with their own. </li></ul><ul><li>Feedback mechanisms to inspire staff participation. </li></ul><ul><li>Simple publishing and permitting of content from your web browser. </li></ul>
  13. 13. COMPARISON OF WIKI WITH CMS <ul><li>From Wikipedia point of view, the generally some of the </li></ul><ul><li>features are inspired and shared with Content </li></ul><ul><li>management Systems (CMS), which are used by </li></ul><ul><li>assemblages-of-practice and business organizations. </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis should be an inspiration for contrast in terms of basic </li></ul><ul><li>features when you try to differentiate with CMS(2): </li></ul><ul><li>Articles name is embedded in the hyperlink.(2) </li></ul><ul><li>These Articles can be edited or created by anyone at anytime (with certain limitations for protected articles).(2) </li></ul><ul><li>Through the web browser these articles can be edited.(2) </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>One-click access to the history/versioning page is provided by each and every article, which is supported by retrieving prior versions and version differencing (&quot;diff&quot;).(2) </li></ul><ul><li>Articles can be supervised actively or passively from the The most recent additions/modifications.(2) </li></ul><ul><li>Changes are possible by easy revert.(2) </li></ul>
  15. 15. ADVANTAGES <ul><li>Which you choose depends on how you're using the wiki: </li></ul><ul><li>If the whole of the course taking place in the wiki it's a </li></ul><ul><li>VLE in itself. And an external one might give you enough </li></ul><ul><li>flexibility. </li></ul><ul><li>Supported in-house by IT department - they may be able </li></ul><ul><li>to add or limit features as you require - they can also </li></ul><ul><li>cause time delays that don't meet the needs of </li></ul><ul><li>academics or students. </li></ul><ul><li>External wikis have the ability to stay very up to date and </li></ul><ul><li>to improve on a monthly  (or even weekly) basis. </li></ul>
  16. 16. DISADVANTAGES <ul><li>Possibility of external tech failure (like when educspaces announced it was closing in the middle of people's blogging-based courses - luckily it was saved, but it's a message! - the need to look for systems with well funded support) . </li></ul><ul><li>Which you choose depends on how you're using the wiki - if is it just a small part of a course using technology it may sit naturally within the institutional VLE and the wiki available. within that The provider may start charging for the use of the service. </li></ul><ul><li>There may be some issues of confidentiality - if students are working on something that is case study based. </li></ul>
  17. 17. CONCLUSION <ul><li>The cooperative work of wikis and show how it will ‘write itself’, based on conserving this developing repository of knowledge in the organization and the end user’s contribution. It also analyses the reasons for how wikis can be useful in knowledge management work and the reason for why the case organization has dismissed using Wiki technology for knowledge management. </li></ul><ul><li>The risk of wiki rejection argues are based upon the literature, provided by a number of strategies, as said by this case organization. Wiki is placed at less importance upon strict discipline, wide range of monitoring and centralised control systems to manage knowledge in the organization when contrast with traditional Knowledge Management Systems . </li></ul>
