Majorium designed and developed a social learning portal for a large human resources company. The objective was to:
- Provide a variety of Web 2.0 collaborative tools for teams to develop communities of practice
- Facilitate internal communication
- Share knowledge
- Present a forum for finding answers
- Establish a single access point for a variety of internal resources
- Create a focal point of “best practices” for employees to access.
The social learning portal includes social learning and collaborative tools such as wikis, blogs, discussion groups, communities of practice and expert directories.
Within this virtual learning environment, managers and users can create learning content in multiple forms, specifying that what is created is either designated for public or private (select groups, such as teams) publication.
