What If The People You Respect Can Influence Your Learning At Work

Yesterday I had a interesting conversation with a colleague who manages the learning management product at SuccessFactors, an SAP Company. We talked in great detail about how formal content and informal content are now connected.  She spoke about her experience connecting the formal learning management system and content from work spaces where people gather and get their work done.

We spoke about another interesting thing. When you search for learning content in the learning management system, not only can you see the list of content created and curated by the crowd, but soon you can also display content created and curated by people in your social graph. People with whom you work and respect can influence your learning. It is a bit like trusting a friend's restaurant recommendation versus trusting an anonymous Yelp review.

The technology for such features is in place. It is a matter of building it.
