Social Learning – From Training To Twitter

Social media, smartphones and tablets, the emergence of content curators – how are web based learning platforms evolving to meet these challenges?

Our free whitepaper uses real life case studies to demonstrate how ‘traditional’ learning platforms can link effectively with social websites to create a ‘pull/push’ training model – accelerating learning on the fly, and generating serious revenues.

With web based content increasingly becoming a commodity, our whitepaper discusses the benefits of harnessing formal ‘push’ e-learning with content that’s pulled from social channels such as blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn and internal corporate social networks.

Having a ‘curation destination’ – a paid-for website or web page that is the recipient of curated content – is often the essential first step to drive social engagement. The real challenge for many organisations is how to link social websites with their existing training programs – often delivered via an LMS – to maximise subject matter knowledge and achieve centralised training objectives.

Webanywhere is already building solutions for a number of clients that link social media with an LMS to create an integrated pull/push learning programme. This offers companies, and their customers, a completely automated means of publishing, sharing and accelerating subject-specific learning.

Our whitepaper which includes real life case study examples of this approach and  includes advice for companies looking to evolve their social learning proposition including:-

  • The social learning ecosystem and content aggregation.
  • The emergence of content curation.
  • Creating a curation destination.
  • Linking social channels to the LMS.
  • Evolving the learning platform.
  • Challenges and incentives for social learning within business organisations.
