Today I am blogging from the NCVO conference where we've given a sneak preview of iKnowHow to all attendees.
Stuart Etherington, CEO of NCVO mentioned our project in his State of the Sector address. He said: ‘we believe that this will enable people in the sector to share their knowledge and expertise like never before’. A real vote of confidence and optimism in an otherwise tough speech.
We've talked to lots of people today and been able to explain what iKnowHow is about. It's been really great to hear that those in the voluntary sector are as excited as we are. more >
In my last post I talked about how popular – and common – wikis are on the web. But why aren’t there any for the voluntary sector? Surely they don’t only work when people are talking about the Muppets or Star Wars? I liked the comment posted on the last blog: surely the culture of volunteering in the voluntary sector would make us, as a group, ideal candidates for maintaining successful wikis?
There are two clear trends we’ve noticed at KnowHow, which suggest the time might be right for us all to embrace wiki collaboration as a form of learning how to do our jobs better.
