Live KM blogging: Required IT tools

Well, this is what the good folks at APQC suggest in a slide titled IT Tools for Communities of Practice. I'm going to list them here, without comment. Comments will come later.

  • Disccusion capabilities (threads, chats, IM, blogs, wikis)

  • Repository for content

  • Document/content manager

  • Expertise locator (roster of members)

  • Subscription capability ("push" content)

  • Effective search engine (across discussion threads and repository)

  • Front page with highlighted content

  • "Productivity" tools that members of the communities of practice find useful

  • Calendar of events/meetings for the community of practice

  • Links to other learning systems or resources with related content.
Needless to say, more to follow.

You are an Army of One! I, however, appreciate your tenacity and drive to at least set the example and try to lead the way.

Thanks, keep it up. By the way, it looks a little spooky when you start talking to yourself on your own blog - just don't start laughing at your own jokes, and I think we might be OK... ;) MM
