Learning in the cloud

1,030 views

Published on

Technology is constantly evolving and changing the ways we live, work, and learn. The ways we approach learning are very different than they were even a decade ago. In order to keep our practices current, we must stay ahead of this technological evolution—and that starts with getting the most out of today’s technology.

In this session you will explore how to use systems you already have to provide on-the-job support for learning, examine the impact of cloud technologies on learning platforms, and discuss how learning platforms can integrate with other enterprise systems. You will examine the increasing role of social media as a means of enhancing informal and social learning and how to use today’s cutting-edge technologies to paint a picture of how technology will shape how we learn tomorrow.

In this session, you will learn:

How and when to use social and informal learning tools to assist in learning and knowledge transfer
The differences between cloud-based platforms and traditional internally hosted systems
How learning programs have evolved in tandem with technology
How to prepare yourself for continued technological evolution
