Learning management systems: The value of social learning


Businesses are by their very nature social organizations. They bring together individuals with common interests and aims. Sharing and social learning are fundamental to organizations’ functioning and success. Implementing social learning as part of your learning management system offers many benefits: It helps facilitate knowledge sharing, better retention and also drives innovation and loyalty.

Reason 1: The value of knowledge sharing. 

Much of the value of businesses lies in their employees’ ability to share relevant knowledge and experiences. Through exchange, employees can further their skills and abilities to fulfill their job duties and take on new challenges. Social learning also helps companies stay ahead of the curve, as collaborative tools are becoming increasingly common in business settings.

Reason 2: The effectiveness of social learning. 

Social learning is also an effective instructional approach. Our whole lives, from the very beginning as young children, we take part in social learning. We naturally model the behavior of those around us—this is the point of teaching and mentorship programs. Moreover, teaching others improves our own retention. Having to explain information to another person clarifies and solidifies key concepts.

Reason 3: Opportunities for innovation and loyalty.

Collaboration and teamwork offer some of the best opportunities for coming up with new ideas. Social learning platforms can be instrumental in formulating new approaches for a variety of areas.

A learning management system can help organizations improve their training and compliance. To learn more about SyberWorks services or to schedule a product demonstration, please call us at 888-642-7078, email us at info@syberworks.com or register on our site.
