Event Description

Leveraging technology for social learning

David Wentworth, Sr. Learning Analyst, Brandon Hall Group

 Social media has become a fixture in many of our lives, whether it is Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or any other of the growing list of social technology platforms. Organisations are recognising the power of this type of technology, especially for learning. Using technology to facilitate the natural connections and interactions between learners, instructors and content is becoming the norm. The key is recognising the difference between social media and social learning, and what social media is and what is isn't. Join Brandon Hall Group Senior Analyst David Wentworth and Ian Baxter, Marketing Director, Saba Software as they discuss social learning and technology, and explore what a social learning technology environment looks like and means to your organisation. Webinar topics include:


  • The evolution of learning
  • The difference between social learning and social media
  • Current trends in social learning technology
  • The possibilities of social and mobile
  • Examples of social learning environment
