What Universities Must Learn About Social Networks

Jay Cross

What Universities Must Learning About Social Networks. THE ISSUE IS NOT whether you are going to become a socially networked university but how soon. A social business is one where all the members of the corporate ecosystem (employees, customers, partners, and customers) network with one another to delight their customers. IBM describes socially networked corporations as the next step in the overall evolution of business. Networks are the glue that connects us.

Going Social

Learning Visions

So last month when I prepared for my LearnNow conference presentation on "Implementing Social Learning", I reached out to my social networks. And big hat tip to Sumeet Moghe of Thoughtworks for sharing his presentation at LSCon on implementing a social learning platform (they went with Jive). If you know me, you know I'm a bit of an extrovert and I crave social interaction. And, like most of us, I like to learn through collaboration and conversation.

Your social wishlist

Jay Cross

How will you take advantage of your in-house social network? Use networks to create services and share collective intelligence. Your company will install an in-house social network. Wise Chief Learning Officers are thinking about how social networks will augment learning & development. Front-running companies are installing social networks like Chatter, Jive, Connections, Socialcast, Yammer, Socialtext, Sharepoint, Ideo, and HootSuite like there’s no tomorrow.

From “learning technologies” to “social technologies”

Jane Hart

Social technologies now play a big part in everything we do, and it is quite clear that many knowledge workers use a variety of social tools and networks not only to help them get work done, but also to learn efficiently while on the job. These might be proprietary systems like Jive , Podio , Yammer , Socialcast , or open source software, like WordPress / Buddypress or Elgg.

Ridiculous research findings on informal learning

Jay Cross

It’s hard to imagine informal learning not going along for the ride when a company embraces Jive or Chatter or Yammer or Socialcast or similar networking environments. An analyst reports that her company’s research finds that only 30% of U.S. companies spent money on informal learning tools or services last year. Of those, big companies spent $16,000 on average; little ones spent $5600. What an astounding finding!

Lurking is Not a Static State

ID Reflections

The analytics told me that over 40% of the users are Active Users (a term Jive uses to describe all users who log in to consume content without necessarily interacting with the content in any manner). Lurkers are part of the all-important weak-tie network, and it's important to keep them engaged, even if engagement does not translate to participation. Lurking and its role in communities has been on the forefront of my mind for the past few days.

Measuring the Effectiveness of Gamification

Your Training Edge

For B2B companies Oracle, SAP, Jive, Cisco, Pearson and Salesforce, gamification has emerged as a key element in their consumerization of the enterprise strategy. Furthermore, “ One global community site, for example, raised Facebook engagement by 92 percent, discussions/comments by nearly 300 percent and social network traffic by 90 percent through a badge and challenge-centric gamified system.

Is There a Better Way to Social Learning?

My conversation with George was no exception as we spoke at length about Connectivism , social learning networks, and the future of current learning technologies (LMS, LCMS, etc.) In most organizations, social learning initiatives will be driven outside L&D Back in April, I had the opportunity to chat with Ben Kiker , the Chief Marketing Officer at Jive Software at the time. I think that using a learner’s own social network is how social learning is taking root.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

Significance

Clark Quinn

My ongoing question has been about transitioning from wrapping social networking around formal learning to being members of communities of practice. It may appear to be ‘hazy cosmic jive’ or too Californian, but I believe it’s meaningful. So, I could see that the completion of a course augmented with social networking activity could include an introduction to the larger practitioner community.

Among the streams that feed this phase of sense-making are: Social networks, primarily private networks such as Socialcast, Google Groups, or Jive. I share my take on things in conversations, both in person and in social networks. The process of seeking out and sharing meaning is a responsibility of enlightened social citizenship.
