Web 2.0

“Web 2.0” refers to a second generation of web-based communities and hosted services (such as social-networking sites, wikis, folksonomies, weblogs / blogs, social bookmarking, podcasts, RSS feeds, social software, web application programming interfaces / APIs, and online web services), that aim to facilitate creativity, collaboration and sharing between users. Although the term suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to any technical specifications, but to changes in the ways in which software developers and end-users use the web.

Web Feeds / Web Syndication (RSS / ATOM)
“Web feeds” (or “web syndication”) are XML-based technologies that enable web content providers to broadcast content, summaries of content or notices of changes to content over the Internet. These technologies define common standards for data formatting and transmission. Interested users choose to subscribe to syndication feeds, adding themselves to the content provider’s audience. The two most common syndication formats are RSS and ATOM.
Web-based training (WBT)
“Web-based training” (WBT) is an older term often used interchangeably with the more popular term, “e-learning.” Put simply, WBT and e-learning, used here, mean using the web to deliver instruction and training.
Web-based distributed authoring and versioning (or "WebDAV") is a set of extensions to the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote World Wide Web servers. It allows users to create, change and move documents on a remote server (typically a web server or "web share"). This is useful for authoring the documents that a web server serves, but it can also be used for storing files on the web, so that the files can be accessed from anywhere. With a fast network and the right client, it is almost as easy to use files on a WebDAV server as those stored in local directories.
A “wiki” is a collaborative website to which any registered user can easily add content or make changes to existing content. Wikis feature a loosely structured set of pages linked in multiple ways to each other and to Internet resources, and employ an open-editing system. The primary goal of wiki sites is to act as a shared (albeit growing) repository of knowledge. Further, wiki content is expected to have some degree of seriousness and permanence.
Work Opportunity Tax Credit / WOTC
The “Work Opportunity Tax Credit” (WOTC) is a U.S. Federal tax credit that is available to employers for hiring individuals from certain target groups who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment.
Workforce Analytics & Measurement

The discipline of using data and data analyses to fuel HR and organizational decisions related to talent and workforce planning.

Workforce Differentiation
The process of identifying and rewarding individual employees for different levels of performance, potential or impact on the business.
Workforce Management
"Workforce management" is the discipline of tracking worker time, attendance, and, in more advanced systems, workers’ schedules and tasks that are used in calculating compensation and accrued benefits.
Workforce Planning
“Workforce planning” is a systematic process that looks at what an organization needs to accomplish in a given period of time due to business goals and strategies; what knowledge, skills and experience are required to get the job done; and, what size and type of workforce is required to provide that mix of skills, knowledge and experience. The workforce planning process then compares current workforce data on employees, as well as external data on workforce segments, and creates a gap analysis that highlights general workforce needs, critical talent segments and their needs, and required workforce reductions to meet business needs.
