Alternatives to Facebook Groups

LearnDash

Should you be using Facebook Groups to supplement your online course? Recently one of the more common questions I have seen asked of us is whether there are any alternatives to using Facebook Groups for the community portion of an online course. I suspect that the increase in this inquiry is the result of the recent events of Facebook and Cambridge Analytica. Why do we use Facebook Groups for course community building? This naturally is not the case with Facebook.

Social Media Policy?

Clark Quinn

So what’s your social media policy? In fact, such a policy really is part of your personal knowledge mastery. Facebook, is for me, the place I be me. I can see a B2C company using Facebook, but that’s not me, so it’s not a biz place. Oddly, I used to connect to almost anyone related to elearning on Facebook, but I realized that was a mistake. And I use IFTTT to send blog announcements to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Using Facebook as a learning platform

Yammer for internal knowledge sharing for health care and policy making

The messages can be slightly longer than on Twitter and it is easier to reply (looks a lot like Facebook). What is Yammer? Yammer is booming, especially in the Nederland within Europe. Many companies have started their Yammer groups for rapid internal exchange.

Not to mention that just about everyone knows how to use Facebook or Twitter already, so in that sense they have prior knowledge. I guess a formal usage policy is irrelevant to intrinsically motivated users, while prizes, points and other forms of extrinsic motivation are similarly redundant. Yammer has been quite a success at my workplace. Not off the charts like at Deloitte , yet very much alive and growing.

The $2 Whiteboard Shows Power of Peer-to-Peer Learning | Social.

Dashe & Thomson

Social Learning Blog Training and Performance Improvement in the Real World Home About Bios Subscribe to RSS The $2 Whiteboard Shows Power of Peer-to-Peer Learning by Jon on December 30, 2010 in Classroom Learning , social learning If you ask most people how they learn things at work –new software, processes, or policies – the vast majority will give you some variation of this theme: “I ask the person next to me.” Of course, the person “next to you” might just as often be consulted via email or other online tool, but it doesn’t change this fact: the amount of workplace learning done in formal training sessions is a tiny fraction of of the learning that takes place one-on-one, between coworkers. That’s why this post from Frank Noschese is so great. He contrasts two teaching methods that involve different kinds of whiteboards: one that costs $2,000, and one that costs $2. The difference: peer-to-peer interaction. It’s hard to overstate the importance of learner engagement when teaching complex new material, and in this case the $2 whiteboard is far more effective at gaining that engagement. Clearly this approach may not be appropriate in all cases, but large organizations would do well to carefully consider when it makes sense to let their expensive gear sit idle and instead employ lower-tech – but more effective – methods.
