What social learning tools do you use?

    Hi Martin

    We are just starting on a few projects to evaluate various forms of social media so in the same position as you probably.

    I would highly recommend Russell Stannards newsletter and website because whatever you decide to use, his videos will explain perfectly how to get the best out of them. (They are TEFL biased but I still find them really useful)

    Good luck and I’d beinterested in what others are doing…






  2. Wow, what a question!

    It depends on what you mean by Social Learning. 🙂

    I work in Business Process Management (BPM) and the buzz there is all about Social BPM, only thing is no one really knows what that is!

    For personal learning I rely heavily on Twitter, Digg, YouTube and Vimeo.

    I use Twitter to follow people, or experts, on the topics I’m interested in, I rely on them to share links to blogs and articles on the internet. Digg is very similar but you rely on strangers to share the information, I think in this respect you get a more balanced view of the World.

    YouTube and Vimeo are fantastic learning tools, just search for the Kahn Academy to see how.

    Going back to Social BPM, I believe at some point this will play a large role in social learning in the enterprise. We’ve been working for many years now in using business process technology to improve the way people access and use supporting information in their every day tasks. It’s about making standard operating procedures user friendly, providing context to workers in their everyday lives so they can focus on getting things done rather than trying to figure out how.

    There are several products out now that are aligning them selves with the Social BPM paradigm so i guess these could be considered for Social Learning. BlueWorksLive from IBM, Tibbr from Tibco and Tempo from Appian all have twitter/Facebook type collaboration. Although I believe a central theme to anything ‘social’ needs to be usability, some of these products still need to work on making business process usable!

    I hope this is useful.
