”Social learning is a natural part of people’s daily lives and we want to make it even more accessible for our learners. By giving them tools to communicate and express their thoughts after attending their training, we want to encourage them to share their knowledge with others and spark their colleague’s interest in gaining new skills“, explains Jon Shepstone.
The new social-learning features in CloudRooms launched at the end of February and will make it possible for learners to:
Star rate their courses Post reviews of the training they've attended Share links to useful training materials available on the portal ’Like‘ training modules in the Facebook style And connect with each other through their message boards on the portal
According to Mr Shepstone social learning tools play a big part in engaging learners. He says, ”Once you start using them, social learning becomes contagious. Such tools make it easy to connect with internal experts, ask them for advice; share tips and find training that can help address a lack of a particular skill required to do the job.“
Last year alone, CloudRooms has delivered more than 1800 live online training sessions including PRINCE2, Microsoft Office and Microsoft Technical courses (http://www.cloudrooms.net/

CloudRooms™ is the new live online learning classroom from Redtray Solutions. It promotes a new approach to learning which eliminates information overload. By breaking down long classroom courses into short one hour training sessions, which are run online by live instructors, it supports retention of newly gained knowledge. It creates an interactive training environment for learners and engages them in practical exercises with a 'try it yourself' approach. This means students can leave a session and apply their new skills straight away at work.
CloudRooms™ is supported by Redtray‘s social learning portal ALTO (http://www.redtray.co.uk/
