  2. 2. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>In the beginning… </li></ul><ul><li>Real-time collaboration took place in the same place, at the same time. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Need </li></ul><ul><li>Valuable time was wasted, and meaningful dialogue was lost if a meeting date, time, and place could not be established. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Need </li></ul><ul><li>Documents , presentations, and other projects had to be faxed, emailed, or express delivered back-and-forth for secondary collaborative efforts. </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Then came the Wiki! </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Innovation/Concept </li></ul><ul><li>“ A wiki is a page or collection of Web pages designed to enable anyone who accesses it to contribute or modify content, using a simplified markup language.” (2008, Wikipedia). </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>The Wiki was named by its creator Ward Cunningham, after the fast, Hawaiian, passenger buses named “wikis.” (2008, Wikipedia; 2008, Wikieducator.org). </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>According to the Wiki creator— Ward Cunningham , the Wiki is “The simplest online database that could possibly work.” (2009, About.com; 2008, Wikipedia; 2002, Wiki.org). </li></ul>Research
  9. 9. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Research </li></ul><ul><li>Cunningham was inspired by Apple’s Hypercard. The Hypercard allowed multiple users, to collaboratively create virtual card stacks with links. </li></ul>
  10. 10. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Development </li></ul><ul><li>Thinking of how to apply this concept for open use with businesses and the general public, Cunningham created a content management system (CMS)—the Wiki. </li></ul>
  11. 11. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Development </li></ul><ul><li>Wiki u sers could still collaborate real-time, and asynchronous. However , users did not need to be in the same place, at the same time. </li></ul>
  12. 12. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Development </li></ul><ul><li>There were issues and concerns with the Wiki. </li></ul><ul><li>Anyone could make changes to public wiki documents. </li></ul><ul><li>Anyone could access </li></ul><ul><li>Wiki documents. </li></ul>
  13. 13. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Development </li></ul><ul><li>However, with moderated or private Wikis these issues have been resolved </li></ul>Require an invitation documents are private and secure with password access.
  14. 14. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Development/Commercialization </li></ul><ul><li>Cunningham’s first wiki—WikiWikiWeb, was developed in 1994, and applied to the internet domain “c2.com,” on March 25, 1995. (2008, Wikipedia). </li></ul>
  15. 15. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Commercialization </li></ul><ul><li>Cunningham created it for the Portland Pattern (computer programming design patterns) Repository. (2002, Wiki.org). </li></ul>
  16. 16. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Commercialization </li></ul><ul><li>“ In the early 2000s, wikis were increasingly adopted in enterprise as collaborative software.” (2008, Wikipedia; 2002, Wiki.org). </li></ul>
  17. 17. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Commercialization </li></ul><ul><li>An online, collaborative meeting place, the Wiki is an electronic portfolio, storing documents and presentations for sharing, revision, and editing. </li></ul>
  18. 18. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Adoption </li></ul><ul><li>The Wiki allows for synchronous and asynchronous collaboration. Users, as Cunningham states, “… can comment on, and change one another’s text .” </li></ul>
  19. 19. The Wiki Collaboration in 3-D <ul><li>Adoption and Social Change </li></ul><ul><li>Businesses and organizations were able “meet” any place, and at any time—with internet access. </li></ul>
