Collaborative Learning Through Online Training

From social networking to constant mobile connectivity, digital communication dominates every aspect of personal and professional life.

Our clients are leveraging the latest version of our LMS, VenU Connect, to empower learners to collaborate – even within the confines of individual eLearning modules. This type of collaboration provides a human element to online training – even when trainers are not able to meet face-to-face.

Our new course feeds allow learners the opportunity to gain insight from communal knowledge and shared experiences within a moderated group setting in the course itself. And here’s how:

  1. Similar to threads on familiar social media sites, course feeds encourage active user participation and subject matter specific dialogue. While the opportunity to engage other learners provides the user with a remote touchpoint, collaborative learning has also been proven to significantly increase learner retention.
  2. Comprehensive moderation tools allow trainers the ability to ensure that the conversation is appropriate and productive as it relates to the subject matter at hand. This also allows trainers the opportunity to provide additional instruction.
  3. The option to have content pushed to the user’s news feed enables them to remain engaged in the feed even after after course completion. This is proven to increase course traffic and learner dialogue for employee training and increase add-on course sales for customer and channel partner training.
