Social Learning Facilitates Collaboration and In-House Expertise
Online social learning has emerged as a primary component of the modern corporate training model. Social learning provides a structured context in which employees can learn in a collaborative manner and share their own knowledge with one another. An effective online social learning platform encourages the cultivation and sharing of an organization's in-house expertise.
Skillsoft Blends Social Learning with On-Demand Referenceware
Skillsoft is a leading provider of online employee training solutions and performance support systems.

The Books24x7 service delivers thousands of full-text digital books from respected publishers, organized into subject area collections such as:
In addition to unabridged reference books, Skillsoft's Books24x7 library includes book summaries, analyst reports, white papers, and on-demand videos—all accessible through a user-friendly interface backed by a powerful proprietary search engine. These authoritative, searchable reference collections can serve as a far more efficient and trustworthy resource than the hit-or-miss Internet searches that workers often resort to when questions come up during the daily routine. To support mobile learning, Skillsoft also offers an "on-the-go" version of the Books24x7 service, optimized for viewing on Web-enabled mobile devices.
The inGenius layer of the Books24x7 platform encourages social learning by enabling learners to supplement third-party expert content with in-house "community content," including notes, comments, and ratings. This social learning element facilitates sharing among learners, and builds a rich store of organization-specific knowledge around the third-party expert content. The inGenius social learning layer also delivers a searchable user profile feature that helps learners to discover knowledgeable colleagues.
