Social learning and collaboration tools enhance both formal and informal learning programs by improving learner engagement and drive greater knowledge retention.
High-performing organizations take a social learning approach that merges formal and informal learning. They strive to not only meet formal training requirements, but to also provide a platform that encourages the exchange of ideas and sharing of knowledge across the enterprise.
NetDimensions Talent Suite supports a variety of built-in social learning features via the platform's Knowledge Centers, including:
On-demand access to learning reference resources
Learner-generated content via program ratings and comments
Knowledge sharing via discussion forums and document repositories
People search to find and communicate

Communities of practice based on
The Knowledge Center is a one-stop-shop where learners can access everything they need to get the most out of their training.
They can find course reference materials, upload and download assignments in the file sharing area, discuss course topics in the forums, use the notepad while studying, contact their instructor or other members in their learning group, and much more.
It is highly configurable; you may turn on and off tabs so that the center contains only items that are relevant to the course.
