Are you ready to provide learners with the resources they need when they need them?

Research suggests that up to 80 percent of learning in the workplace occurs on an informal basis. And yet, most corporations spend more than 80 percent of their training budget and effort on formal training.

This interactive webinar will show you how to better understand and deliver informal learning, including the effective use of:

  • E-communities (forums and synchronous environments)
  • Electronic performance support systems (EPSS)
  • Emerging and nontraditional methods that are filling this much-needed training opportunity.

In this session you will come away with an understanding of how to:

  • Blend learning assets effectively across the “Five Moments of Learning Need.”
  • Integrate informal learning techniques into existing learning models
  • Recognize the types of learners who are best served by informal learning and plan programs accordingly
  • Develop the buy-in for effective informal learning
  • Use the tools you need to create effective informal learning environments, such as single-source publishing and how it allows designers to manage the learning assets and content needed to blend effectively.
