Success Formula for Discussion Forums in Financial Services

Tony Karrer

I presented the discussion forum as a solution to this problem, in that it would reduce the number of emails they receive because the information would not be in their in-box, and more importantly would allow discussion between the all the members (one to many) rather than one to one or one to a few. They were also concerned about the accuracy of the information that was published on the forum.

There are several different online social networks, but for our purposes, we’ll focus on the three that tend to be used the most by learning professionals–Facebook, LinkedIn and Ning.

Social Media for Knowledge Workers

Tony Karrer

One of the questions that always comes up is: How do I find more information to help me get started? The answer is that this information is a bit hard to come by.

With Facebook, LinkedIn and other social network services, for example, we directly experience networks in how we connect to others, share information, and get answers to questions.

Down on the iPad?

Clark Quinn

At the Upside Learning Blog, this post (which I found through the CLO group on LinkedIn) proclaims that the elearning industry is down on the iPad.

So, it’s a great platform for formal learning, and I reckon, a reasonably powerful one for informal learning, at least independently (web browser, email).

With network connectivity, it can be social as well; in addition to the internet browser there are also already dedicated FaceBook and LinkedIn apps for the iPhone. It’s still about ‘reading’, not about information.
