Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
The Knowledge Management Institute (KMI), the leading Certification provider for Knowledge Management Professionals, in conjunction with partner Knowledge Smart Designs (KSD), a Toronto-based firm, has launched a new Social KM tool for its students, using KSD's innovative new product: "Knowledge Rooms;" collaborative workspaces based around communities of practices, processes and initiatives.
KMI students will benefit by using this new platform for social collaboration and continued learning; KMI calls it the "Student Hub."
"We are excited to partner with KSD's Team and give our students an even more robust learning experience," says Douglas Weidner, Chairman of KMI. "Our students now have a social platform to share and engage fellow students world-wide, and the benefits go much deeper than you get from a LinkedIn Group."
"KSD is meeting the needs every organization must face," Weidner adds, "to collaborate more effectively, which drives innovation and improved performance, and they do it all in an attractive user experience."
"Harnessing the energy and ingenuity of your team is key to adapting to change," says KSD's Founder, Graham Westwood. "Embedding KMI's powerful educational tools into the collaborative environment will help organizations build capability and capacity on the fly.
Drowning people in information while starving them for knowledge is never a good strategy," adds Westwood. "The integration of process, knowledge and change management with KMI's educational component is a breakthrough strategy."
Weidner adds: "Continuous learning and enrichment, plus social connections with peers and experts, makes this a very unique, value-added experience not found anywhere else in KM training."
KMI's Student Hub will be the "Go to" location for:
Continuous Learning – via "Hot Topics" Training Videos
Connect and Collect – share and network with fellow students world-wide
Visibility – post blogs and articles or learn from others; comment on postings
New Content – leverage new content/enhancements to the Certification program
