challengera.com launches Social Learning

With Social Learning, a new offer from internalDesk, the goal is to Make Corporate Learning Great Again.
Learning, like a lot of things in life, is more fun when other people are involved! The problem with Learning Management Systems (LMSs) is that, even if they are gamified (like the newer LMSs are), they still fail to create an engaging experience that lasts. Indeed, whilst it may initially be fun to earn points, to acquire badges and so forth, the excitement quickly plateaus as the user sits on his/her own. Ultimately, it is course-completion that slows down and new learning and behaviors that fail to materialise.
Obviously, to engage employees with their training and development is a big challenge for any organisation.
So we asked: What if corporate learning could be made inspiring, collaborative, fun and – importantly – cost efficient? What if whatever happens on a client LMS (new or old) – that is when employees take courses, when they complete them, when they receive soft rewards, etc. – could be broadcasted within a relevant context and in real-time? Would it not be more inspiring to others in the organisation? Would not all these positive things now visible to all lead to greater adoption, completion, etc.? Would not the intended behaviors more easily spread across the organisation as they get demonstrated by peers? Would not it support the creation of a learning and sharing culture?
With Social Learning from internalDesk, any ‘action’ (e.g. courses, videos, quizzes, tutorials) can now be streamed within your company’s social feed without you having to do anything with your LMS whether old or new. In other words, online learning is no longer a lonely ‘tick-in-the-box’ type of activity that fails to engage; it is an exciting, social and rewarding experience.
