eLearning Weekly

Enterprise 2.0, the use of social media and social networking tools in a business setting, is having a major impact on how employees learn and share information. As learning professionals, it’s becoming increasingly important that we stay aware of these changes and understand how and why they’re happening. We need to play a bigger role in understanding and selecting Enterprise 2.0 and learn more about why it matters to us.

Social Learning Tools Should Not be Separate from Enterprise 2.0

Tony Karrer

With the recent launch of InGenius by SkillSoft, I believe it’s time again to raise a pretty important question: Where do Social Learning Tools belong? Should they be coupled with your LMS or other learning-specific tools? My contention (as expressed in LMS and Social Learning ) is that most of the vendors are getting this wrong.

Key social learning resources: part 3

Jane Hart

This is the third part of my four-part series curating key social learning resources for TrainingZone’s social learning month. The first piece this week comes from Charles Jennings, who looks at why the real power of e-learning is social.

So, what are the implications for the learning in the workplace? Effective workplace learning requires this engagement and Enterprise 2.0 and Social Business are founded on organizational democracy.
