Collaborative and eLearning
Write Technology takes a fresh approach to learning, taking advantage of a long-neglected source of knowledge: your employees. Informal learning complements formal eLearning and training. Informal, collaborative learning is inspired by the changing nature of the Internet and world.
Strictly speaking, eLearning is the delivery of a learning, training or education program by electronic means. eLearning involves the use of a computer or electonic device in some way to provide training, educational or learning material.
eLearning may involve more than just the internet. While the name implies online, eLearning is the evolution of Computer-Based Training (CBT). CBT used to mean that the student worked on a course, usually via a CD-ROM or designated hard drive. Now, eLearning encompasses those meanings, as well as internet, intranet , DVD, digital video, mobile phones, and more.
Collaborative, informal learning is the evolution of eLearning. It is a low-cost solution that can offer big rewards. As of right now, collaborative learning includes social media tools such as blogs, wikis, and social networking, as well as simulations and games.
We aren’t suggesting you eliminate formal training. However, we want to augment that training and capitalize on the knowledge locked inside each individual employee. It’s time to expose that knowledge and share it across your organization.
Write Technology can help you set up the structure to harness and manage the individual knowledge. Imagine your employees helping each other, sharing knowledge, and taking control and contributing to their own learning. Imagine the cost benefits for you.
