Since corona, we are working – and learning – at home more often than ever. At the same time, social learning is an indispensable part of the learning process. How can a learning platform help you with that?
What is social learning?
The theory behind social learning assumes that new behaviors can be learned by observing and imitating others. It is supported by the idea that meaning making – and therefore learning – is a cognitive process that takes place in social environments. Social interactions lead to a curiosity and motivation to learn. How do you deal with this now that we partly work remotely?
Choose an LMS with community features
By choosing a learning management system with good community functionalities, you prevent employees from feeling lonely during their studies. During an in-company training or training elsewhere on location, a student easily approaches a colleague or fellow student with a question. With e-learning, the threshold is slightly higher, even though we are used to communicating digitally. With proper planning, including breaks, small group spaces, and a focus on interaction, virtual classrooms are a great substitute for in-person training while preserving the social learning aspect.
Also a group feeling online
If you use a modern learning management system, you can also add a community aspect to online training. For example, while learning, employees can leave a note for a colleague or ask a question to someone who has already followed the training. That way you get people off their island and you also create that group feeling online. By integrating community involvement into the online learning environment, you combine the best of both worlds.
