Why the Real Power of eLearning is Social Learning
eLearning has been with us in one form or another for at least the past 50 years, maybe longer.
the first player on the enterprise eLearning block was the University
of Illinois' PLATO learning management system, built in 1960 to deliver
training through user terminals. Some would argue that quite a few of
today's LMS offerings haven't advanced a great deal from PLATO. They
serve up content and track activity. There is a better way – Social
The question is this:
do current ideas about eLearning fit into the 'new world' of work and
in the new world of building workforce capability in the 21st century?
students are technologically savvy and spend hours a day online. This
infographic from Socrato illustrates teachers’ responses after being
asked to gauge the effectiveness of various forms of education
materials….might the same apply to instructors and employees within
corporate/enterprise settings as well?
such as TOPYX and TOPYX Bolt can assist in the future development of
training, e-learning, and social learning whether as an individual
social learning platform via TOPYX or as a part of your existing
learning management system (LMS) with TOPYX Bolt in any enterprise,
academic or institutional environment.

when people get things done by working in the so-called "white space" in
the organizational structure, or by working across the "seams" of a
business process. In their ways of working and connecting with each
other, they do more than just what they are told top-down and more than
what is defined as their job. This is the social dimension.
organization has a social dimension. The challenge is that the social
dimension is not accurately reflected in either the organization's
hierarchy or its process flow.For
years, social systems were described not as valuable systems to tap
into, but as limits on innovation and change. We gave these systems
names like culture.
what if leaders could create a future where customers, associates and
suppliers are no longer seen as objects in the system but as valued
sources of innovation, ideas and energy? What if they could truly tap
into the creativity, knowledge and experience of their organization's
people? What could possibly enable such a transformation?
