Your Training Edge

Adopting an ever popular MOOC is almost equal to zero level strategy if you are unable to engage the largest stakeholders involved in it i.e. the learners.

Social media is not only a buzzword in several different industries; it is also a powerful force on society and the workplace. The Pew Research Center began tracking social media usage in 2005; since then, the percentage of American adults who use social networking sites has increased from 7 percent to 65 percent.
