Social learning is not a new phenomenon. For as long as there has been work, there have been apprentices learning first-hand from their mentors. And it’s easy to see why. Learning that provides the most value occurs most often during those “teachable moments” when someone has an urgent need for knowledge. That’s why social learning is here to stay.
Increase the use of social learning in your development programs with Blackboard Learn™ for Associations, and you’ll provide new ways to offer value to your membership. Our powerful collaboration and communications tools will foster connections between your members located around the country or the world, through tools like discussion boards, live chat, virtual classrooms, journals, groups and blogs.
Blackboard Learn for Associations gives you the tools you need to enhance a traditional synchronous learning program. More importantly, it also affords opportunities for more unstructured, asynchronous learning , where an open and collaborative community can gather whenever and wherever they encounter moments of need.
