6 benefits of social & collaborative learning

Docebo

Learning from one another is what people have always done throughout human history, so ‘social and collaborative learning’ as a learning method is likely to be the oldest one in existence.

Social Learning is Voluntary; Collaboration Platforms are Enablers

ID Reflections

As an Instructional Designer and L&D Consultant, I am often asked questions like: 1.What social collaboration platform should we use? 2.How do we get people to collaborate ? My first reaction is to say: "You can''t make people share or get anyone to collaborate." What this eventually leads to is a culture where sharing and collaboration is internally stifled.

Learning and Working on the Web

The article goes on to show that collaboration works when: we work with people with different skills; we do what each person does best; and.

Are you designing for cooperation or collaboration?

The eLearning Nomad

What should be done collaboratively? It’s often the difference between cooperation and collaboration that requires the biggest mind shift. Because it involves other people, you might think that this is collaboration. It’s OK to have a few cooperative tasks in an eWorkshop, but keep in mind that the backbone of any eWorkshop should be collaborative problem-based learning.

Teasing apart cooperation and collaboration

Clark Quinn

There have been a couple of recent proposals about the relative role of cooperation and collaboration, and I’m trying to make sense of them. He has coordination as a subsidiary to cooperation and on to collaboration.  So coordination is when we know what needs to be done, but we can’t do it alone. And collaboration is when we’re working together with a goal but not clear how we’ll get there.  I think what’s core here is how well defined the task is and how much we contribute. Coordination is, to me I guess, a subset of cooperation.)

9 tips for successfully including peer collaboration in an online course

The eLearning Nomad

Often when I ask new clients why they opt for a ‘blended’ program, they indicate the need for people to work together – implying that true collaboration can only happen face-to-face. Many of our clients run successful collaborative eWorkshops (mostly asynchronous, so no or few webinars ). In fact, there might be more collaboration in an online version compared to its face-to-face equivalent because we’re giving people more time to think and formulate their contributions. Asynchronous collaboration often goes deeper. Design a smart and inspiring collaborative task.

Is Too Much Collaboration a Bad Thing?

Most companies that employ collaborative practices can probably tell you that they see many of collaboration’s benefits.

A story about 3D collaboration

Kapp Notes

Here is a little vignette describing how 3D collaborative environments can impact large organizations. Just as technology has advanced in almost every field, so has the technology surrounding learning and collaboration. Three-dimensional virtual immersive environments are the next logical evolution and extension of existing technologies—a convergence of 2D virtual classrooms, social media, Web 2.0 and three-dimensional graphics. While they may have waned in the past few months, it would be a dangerous assumption to think they are gone. The possibilities are too rich. The Story.

In networks, cooperation trumps collaboration

Learning and Working on the Web

In networks, cooperation trumps collaboration. Collaboration happens around some kind of plan or structure, while cooperation presumes the freedom of individuals to join and participate.
