The following text is part of the rough draft of what I said at presentation I gave on Social Media and Social Learning. My speech most likely deviated from this due to memory failings and last-minute editing.
The problem with social media is that it’s very public. For very good reasons, you may not want to share your training with the world.
The good news is that you don’t have to. Webinars and other social broadcasting can be very exclusive. Ask your IT department about hosting content such as video and blogs that only your trainees can see.
Like I said earlier, Yammer and SocialCast give you some options for having conversations only withing your organization.
I have one more idea for you. How many of you use project management apps? I’m talking about the apps that let you share content and assign tasks. There also may be some conversation tools built into it.
Any way you can use that to create a lessons for remote workers?
It’s not ideal, and I’ve never done it. But if that’s all you got, just maybe it will get the job done. Just thinking outside the box.
