Building Business Performance with Social Media

by | Feb 26, 2009 | Interviews

The latest Towards Maturity benchmark report showed that new media such as podcasting , blogs and wikis are on the increase but what real business benefits are they bringing? With so many new tools and so little time available, how can we get started?

 

This interview with Jane Hart provides a helpful overview on where new media can add value to learning, setting a strategy for social learning, identifying some of the barriers and handy hints on getting started.

Case Study: Best Learning Technologies Project 2018 (UK commercial Sector)

In 2018, 93% of learning practitioners wanted to increase employee engagement with learning, but only 27% were successful. With less than a third meeting this goal, it is important to explore how an exemplar organisation turned their learning strategy on its head to achieve just that.
