Invite-to-Watch extends the reach and the effectiveness of your learning content by putting it in front of those who will value it most.Social learning is, arguably, human civilization’s oldest and (again, arguably) most effective methods to gather new knowledge. And while our approach to learning, especially within the enterprise, has evolved thanks to fresh technology, it’s hard to argue the lasting benefits of sharing knowledge and learning from those we collaborate with.Wringing the most value out of social and experiential learning, however, depends on a company’s ability to centralize that knowledge somewhere. Those interactions your employees have with peers and managers are where the majority of learning on the job occurs – and their value is truly priceless. Indeed, most learning happens through interactions with peers and managers, and through on-the-job experiences and problem-solving.In fact, social learning approaches are said to have a 75:1 ROI ratio compared to formal, web-based training activities. When you consider that measuring and determining learning ROI is a challenge that’s top of mind for many of today’s L&D professionals, the clear benefits of enabling social learning are likely the reason the majority of companies are making sure social learning is part of their learning mix (or at least plan to do so in the future).
