Imagine an L&D job where you wake up and content is loaded onto your system without any work on your part and all you have to do is hit “approve” to make it go live in your system. Imagine not having to train anyone on how to use your learning system and have it mimic the systems that people already love (FB, Twitter, YouTube, Skype). Imagine having the most fun of your career. Imagine people being able to, at a moment’s need, instantly find each other to learn from by accessing this system, and imagine having peer-to-peer mentoring without an internal process or “program” to manage it. Imagine your team members being able to find the info they need, when they need it, via computer or handheld device, customized to your company, without having to endure dull off-the-shelf material. Imagine all of that happening for a lot less than an LMS costs.

Social learning is creating a fundamental shift in how people work and is here to stay.  With more than 80% of North Americans using social media [Forrester] there is a new focus on the intermingling of ideas, information and experiences to produce learning. By leveraging our organization’s collective wisdom we can build internal bench-strength by better mirroring how people are already learning and communicating today. Research shows that no one person is as smart as the collective, therefore a new imperative exists to leverage team members broadly as both consumers and creators of content. And with potentially half the workforce made up of Millennials by 2014, there is a broad expectation to use technology in new and unique ways to meet their learning expectations. In this web cast, Liza Taylor, former Director of Talent Development for Hulu, will talk about her experiences implementing a social learning platform. Please join us as Liza will cover:

• Research helpful for understanding and selling the social learning concept
• Differentiators between social learning and e-learning
• How employee engagement results can be uplifted by social learning initiatives
• Tips on sorting through the sea of options
• Planning, sourcing and making the business case
• Defining and measuring success
