UPDATE: Survey now includes “None of the above” options
Some time ago I wrote a blog post about how I believed that as social businesses emerge, and new social and collaboration platforms (or social intranets) are introduced into enterprises, L&D will have an extended role in the organisation in order to support the new community and collaboration skills that will be required to underpin a successul social business initiative.

In my recent webinar presentation for the LSG online conference, Using a collaboration platform for brilliant learning, rather than giving a PowerPoint presentation, I took the participants on a web tour of the Social Learning Centre. And, in doing so, I demonstrated how:
Pick of the Month: June 2012 – Informal learning, Yammer, collab platforms, change, and keep learning
June is now over – and for us here in the UK it’s been one of the wettest Junes since records began! But fortunately there’s been plenty of good stuff to read on the Web. Here’s my round-up of my favourite articles/blog posts of the month under 5 key themes. (You can find more of the resources I enjoyed during the month in my 2012 Reading List.)
In my webinar presentation today for the LSG Online Conference – entitled Using a collaborative platform for brilliant learning – I didn’t use PowerPoint slides but instead gave a web tour of the Social Learning Centre.
