Learnerprise 2.0: Why Learning 2.0 & Enterprise 2.0 Should Align

Dan Pontefract

Most of the dollars are spent on formal events such as ILT classroom and eLearning rather than informal and social learning concepts or initiatives. Ironically, the real benefit is felt moreso during informal and/or social learning exchanges. Which brings me to Learnerprise 2.0.

Is the use of internal social media and social learning helping to drive up employee engagement? Should the C-Suite become more involved in social? Get Social.
