10:30 AM - 11:30 AM Thursday, October 30


Raphael 1

Today’s employees need to use different types of tools and they must learn how to assimilate and perform their job with limited training time and support. By using a social-networking site for a virtual-learning environment (VLE) learners can interact with experienced employees, learn how to properly use the company’s internal social network, and properly navigate through systems and repositories.

In this session you will explore how to use an enterprise social-networking site to create a well-designed VLE that will enhance the traditional corporate classroom and the learning experience. To increase performance outcomes you will identify key principles that support social and informal learning using a VLE. You will learn how to encourage participation and collaboration, and get engagement using a classroom VLE. You will leave this session understanding how a VLE can enhance participant performance, engagement, and learning experience, and reduce time to proficiency.
