“Managers are now empowered to use the resources they already have in a way that is organized and efficient.” - Avi Singer, CEO/Founder
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 04, 2015
showd.me (http://showd.me/), a social learning platform that allows employees to easily train and learn from other employees across an organization, today announced two new features: self sign-up and training paths.
With self sign-up, companies can begin using the platform immediately after filling out the required registration fields. This breakthrough convenience will eliminate any delays between purchase to implementation, which can typically take 30 to 90 days for most learning management systems. Additionally, the tool is now available directly to those who need it most: line managers in the field.
“In the learning technology space, time to implement is a huge concern,” said Avi Singer, founder and CEO of showd.me. “Many companies get bogged down in the deployment of learning management platforms and never realize the benefits of the technology they purchase."
To further streamline onboarding new hires, the training paths feature combines peer-to-peer and traditional knowledge sharing to allow HR, managers, or anyone looking to create custom, trackable learning paths for others to do so using existing training content on showd.me.
Content may be from anywhere on the web, or created by employees. This includes live or recorded tutorial sessions, instructional guides in document form, and profiles of employees with whom trainees should connect.
“Through these training paths, organizations can bring life to their peer-to-peer learning initiatives, leveraging internal knowledge transfer as a building block for learning paths,” said Singer. “Managers are now empowered to use the resources they already have in a way that is organized and efficient.”
showd.me focuses on benefiting organizations in three main areas: onboarding and training new hires, developing employee expertise, and identifying new career paths, all with peer knowledge-sharing as its backbone.
“Current market offerings are not providing the tools that help organizations leverage the existing knowledge of their employees,” said Singer. “Our platform not only provides these tools, but does so in a way that engages employees in collaborative learning.”
showd.me’s platform already address key challenges in learning management systems including:
- Searchable profiles with LinkedIn integration
- Self-managed session scheduling
- Web conferencing and recording
- Content sharing and storage
- Open API
Through the platform, any employee can request the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with another employee to learn from them.
Organizations can use the collective knowledge of employees across an organization as a cost-effective learning and development solution. The platform facilitates peer-to-peer learning, a type of learning that takes place when one person with more knowledge on a subject teaches another in an informal setting.
showd.me (http://www.showd.me) is a technology platform focused on peer-to-peer learning, allowing employees to learn from, and train, other employees across the organization. With cross-platform tools such as keyword skill search, chat, video, file sharing, email integration and more, organizations can easily onboard and train new hires, develop employee expertise and identify new career paths. showd.me is based in New York and started in 2014.
