Leading Industry Analyst to Explore Social Learning Trends in New Training Industry Inc. Webinar
Session, sponsored by Cornerstone OnDemand, to show learning and HR professionals how to leverage social networking and Web 2.0 tools for new learning platforms
Santa Monica, Calif., April 22, 2009 – Ongoing technology developments and an increasingly tech-savvy workforce have led to major changes in the way professionals learn and collaborate. Claire Schooley, senior analyst with Forrester Research, will discuss the ways social learning is growing beyond traditional approaches and how it will affect organizations in a new Training Industry Inc. Webinar entitled “Social Learning Tools: Changing the Learning Process.” The complimentary session, sponsored by leading learning and talent management software provider Cornerstone OnDemand Inc., is scheduled for Thursday, April 23 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. PT.
In an April 2009 Forrester report entitled “The ROI of eLearning,” Schooley comments, “Blogs, wikis, instant messaging, podcasts, online discussions, communities of practice, online mentoring, and virtual worlds are informal learning methods that are gaining traction especially with technology-savvy employees who are familiar with these kinds of technologies in their personal lives. Generally inexpensive to set up, these resources allow learners to share information, get answers to questions quickly, and drive their own learning.”
During the one-hour Webinar, Schooley will:
Outline the drivers for the closer integration between learning and technology, such as shorter information cycles, the increase of Millennials in the workplace, and the proliferation of social networks among workers of all ages.
Highlight examples of how employees, partners and customers are driving their own learning and taking advantage of materials they can both access and interact with.
Provide tips for how organizations can leverage the power of interacting with others via social networks and other Web 2.0 tools in order to create new and exciting learning platforms.
