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 as a virtual-learning environment (VLE), learners can interact with experienced employees, learn how to properly use the company’s internal social network, and effectively 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 learn the key principles that support social and informal learning using a VLE, and how to encourage participation, collaboration, and engagement using a classroom VLE. You will leave this session understanding how a VLE can enhance participant performance, engagement, and the learning experience, and reduce learners’ time to proficiency.
