Join Joel Oleson and Jerry Goguen as they dive deeper into harvesting the knowledge within the enterprise and its business value for your SharePoint implementation. Informal learning takes place in many forms and it is happening all the time. Capturing it for success is vital to any organization. As we all work more transparently and “like a network,” adoption and measurement becomes clearer and the shared knowledge remains in the organization as attrition occurs.
We’ll discuss how informal and social learning can impact the strength of your organization, maximize the ripple effect of key employee’s contributions, how you can reap the benefits of adding minimal structure to the “water cooler” and see the power of Intralearn’s NanoLearn in action.
How is this webinar helpful to me?
The way people learn is dramatically changing to “point of need” as the trend of social media continues to influence access to information. As SharePoint and social media adoption grows within your organization the ability to assign value to knowledge transfer becomes increasing acute. Learning processes must be deployed that can respond to decreasing product and service cycle times with higher quality. Informal Social Learning is complementary to the effort of your Learning and Development organization use of a Learning Management System (LMS) for structured course offerings. Informal learning expert Jay Cross explains, “Informal learning is the unofficial, unscheduled, impromptu way most people learn to do their jobs. Informal learning is like riding a bicycle: the rider chooses the destination and the route”.
See how Measuring Knowledge is Power can be implemented with NanoLearn for Informal Social Learning using SharePoint:
- Embrace organizational initiative’s where employees or partner organizations work together to accomplish business-related tasks via user-generated (social) content creation and sharing*.
- Bridge the gap between nuggets of “current information” and formal courses by leveraging your existing investments in SharePoint, videos and social media utilizing social and informal learning strategies in your organization.
- Easily add nominal structure to crowd sourced information by associating educational value, validation, gamification and rewards such as badging to real time correlate against business objectives.
- As the demographic of the workplace shifts to contain more people who grew up in an age where new technologies and social media are an integrated part of daily life, it is natural that the style of learning and training will adapt to engage with learners and technological advances. Business tools such as SharePoint, YouTube, Yammer and LinkedIn are already used to learn – why not incorporate these into your business practices?
