I am doing some research on the use of forums for learning and development and thought 'what better place to start than on a forum!'.
I want to look at the benefits and the drawbacks of using forums. What benefit do they bring to learning and development? Why would we want them in our organisations? How will they help? Who will use them?
Equally important I think are the drawbacks and/or detrimental effects they can have. What are the pitfalls? What should we avoid or be aware of?
Any advice, insights or comments that you may have on the subject would be really useful and appreciated!
I guess I really am immersing myself in my research on this!
