Business is becoming more aware of the benefits of social learning via interaction and collaboration as a means of retaining and accelerating knowledge in the workplace. This can be achieved in a number of ways:
Content posted to a social network website can quickly be shared and commercialised as learners become aware of new topics or subject areas in which they want or need to acquire additional training (via an LMS).
A combined e-Portfolio and social networking platform enables web-based collaboration and allows learners to create and share a dynamic collection of online folders, website links, data files, personal information (e.g. CVs) and uploaded documents of almost any kind.
e-Portfolios are a great addition to an effective social learning programme, as they enable learners to create an online archive of their learning as they progress through a course. We are a Partner of Mahara, a stand-alone e-portfolio system that can be integrated into a wider virtual learning framework (including an LMS).
Our Learning Consultants can help you with all your social learning questions, design issues and development needs.
