Jane Hart has been creating presentations recently to help explain social learning to her clients. Fortunately for us, she is now sharing some of this content online: Jane is working on a 3-part series related to social learning, and the first 2 parts are now available (and embedded below). Keep an eye out for the third part, which should hopefully be published in a week or two.

These presentations are valuable for several reasons. First, they explain the significance and importance of social learning in simple, people terms without getting overly technical. I would feel very comfortable using these presentations to help educate upper management on the benefits of social learning without hesitation. Second, the presentations describe a solid approach (using Elgg) for getting started with social learning. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all of the social learning tools out there, and even though I’ve never used Elgg, it seems like it would be a great starting point. Finally, the presentations are extremely portable on SlideShare; you can embed and share them very easily with others. Take a look…

Part 1: The Future of eLearning is Social Learning

Part 2: Using Elgg as as Social Learning Platform

Part 3: Coming soon!

This is absolutely brilliant. It’s really emotionally very rewarding for me, as I was in a wheelchair following my meningitis in 2007. I did my entire Bachelor of Law from a beside. I am very passionate about e-learning.
I wish you every luck with your initiative here.

My website is http://www.lawandmedicine.org.uk and I specialize in e-learning for law and medicine. I also have a general free guide which I make available called http://www.mrcpguide.com

I have had these websites professionally designed, but I believe that the key to running a successful e-learning company is focussing on the needs of the customer, and encouraging as much interaction as possible.

My profile here is http://younoodle.com/people/shibley_rahman

I write briefly about medical education on my personal blog too, http://shibleyrahman.com (http://www.shibleyrahman.com)

I would love anyone to have a look!

Best wishes.
