SMBs and Social Learning Technologies

Janet Clarey

SMBs & Social Media (Sum Total). Some notes: Polls: Most attending work in L&D with some HR, IT, and learning services providers. Current learning delivery channels primarily ILT classroom and ILT online as well as a fair amount of self-paced e-learning. Goals pretty evenly spread among rapid e-learning (consumption and development), reduce costs, support informal learning, improve productivity. Strategies: As part of a blended learning strategy.

Lurking is Not a Static State

ID Reflections

It has received a lot of attention in the past from the thought leaders in the realm of learning and the role of communities in personal as well as organizational learning. No one can see the engrossed look on my face when I read discussion threads in the Learning and Skills group. A lurker might very well be giving back by performing better at their jobs, by sharing insights with others in the context of their daily work by using the learning gleaned from lurking.

Success Formula for Discussion Forums in Financial Services

Tony Karrer

I received a question this week related to Discussion Forums for Knowledge Sharing at Capital City Bank : I successfully launched a discussion forum for a small group of lending assistants within my bank. They see the benefit of the tool in a strict learning environment, but have difficulty seeing its use in an expanded role. Of course, there’s no easy answers here, but lots we can discuss and learn around this.

Learning and KM: Separated at birth?

Jay Cross

I sensed that learning and knowledge management were converging and invited bloggers form both sides to get together at the Tidehouse to share viewpoints and guzzle beer. If you’re into meta-learning, you should track what’s going on there. Corporate learning and KM are both about getting the job done. Learn how it is transforming collaboration from the man who coined the term. People already share knowledge within the enterprise.
