When built into training programmes, they play a key role in running communities and networks and make it possible to bring teams in line with strategic initiatives. This major innovation is to distance learning what Web 2.0 applications are to the Internet; it is referred to as Social Learning.
To allow all communities to reap the benefits of Social Learning in a framework that is appropriate to large organisations, CrossKnowledge has developed an innovative approach:
Community on Demand means you can easily develop a made-to-measure community portal that responds to your individual corporate needs. It is an open-ended application that can be interfaced with the leading LMS systems on the market.
Over 20 off-the-shelf selections are also available, some dealing with areas such as 'managing psychosocial risk', 'wellbeing in the workplace', 'diversity', 'ROI' or 'customer orientation', others focusing on the needs of particular communities such as 'high potentials', 'young managers' or 'sales teams'.
