Your Training Edge

A PLN represents the pinnacle of informal learning. According to recent estimates, although about 80 percent of learning is thought to occur informally, companies still invest 75 percent of their L&D budgets in formal training.

Twitter discussions and hangouts can be used to host real-time conversations.
