From LMS to Personal Learning Networks

During the last 15 years organisations have increasingly focused on and encouraged eLearning using tools such as learning management systems, competency management systems and online skills assessments. These provided what were considered to be an integrated skills and learning system where skills gaps could be identified and targeted with precision and where people with the right skills for a specific project or initiative could be identified.
While these approaches brought important progress to workforce development activity they were not able to cope with the dynamic aspects of knowledge creation and increasing change ‘at the speed of business’ in the workplace that has occurred.  More recently, collaboration technology and social media tools have been developed that underpin our ability to address these challenges. They enable the formation of Personal Learning Networks.
Personal Learning Networks are viewed by many as more useful than enterprise learning systems. However, their utility raises questions. Are these the answers for the future? Can they represent the networked character of knowledge creation and learning as they occur in today’s organisations?

This webinar will address the key challenges and options facing all organisations in building and maintaining workforce capability through Enterprise Learning Systems and through Personal Learning Networks.
