Are you ready for learning with Web 2.0?
Long Island, NY (PRWEB) July 9, 2009
CERTPOINT Systems™, a leading provider of corporate training solutions, announced today the publication of its new white paper:‘Are you ready for learning with Web 2.0?’. The paper explores how collaborative technologies such as blogs, wikis and social networking can dramatically increase the reach and impact of organizational learning.
Drawing on real world examples, the white paper provides a wealth of practical tips on how Learning and Development (L&D) departments can harness Web 2.0 to boost learning in the workplace. The paper considers such questions as how to implement Web 2.0 successfully, overcoming objections to the use of Web 2.0 tools for learning and –- crucially –- integrating Web 2.0 with existing learning systems.
Published today, July 9, “Are you ready for learning with Web 2.0?” is available at: http://www.certpointsystems.com/index.php?option=com_docman&Itemid=250.
CERTPOINT Systems CEO Ara Ohanian pointed out that Web 2.0 represents a great opportunity for L&D professionals: “People are already using Web 2.0 technologies to learn from each other. That’s natural. The L&D department can help by facilitating the spread of good practice and making existing e-learning content available over Web 2.0 channels.”
And, Ohanian added, mobile technology adds extra impact to Web 2.0 learning. “People are no longer chained to their desk for internet access; they carry it in their smart phone. Organizational learning has to be there too or risk being left behind. Because people naturally use collaborative technologies on their mobile devices, it makes sense to use Web 2.0 as a key vehicle for organizational learning.”
