How can you incorporate social learning into online learning

Social learning can provide enormous benefits to online learners, but there are also some challenges that you need to address before incorporating it into your L&D planning design. In this blog post, we will discuss how to go about integrating social learning to get the most out of it!

Four things L&D should incorporate social learning into online learning

  1. Attention
  2. Social learning helps reinforce the notion of the task being different or unique, which can help your employees remain engaged and better learn.

  3. Retention
  4. Employees can study together at their speed and upload their profiles to display their completed courses. Learning happens through the internalization of information, and they can remember information best when they are in the same situation as when they learned something.

  5. Replication
  6. The process of discussing and practicing the behaviors and the skills and knowledge that your employees gained from the course helps them put these new abilities into practice whenever needed.

  7. Motivation
  8. Have fun learning! Social learning is an excellent method to engage your employees and improve learning retention. Motivation is essential for everything, and learning is not an exception.
Incorporating social learning into online courses can be highly beneficial to employees. By reinforcing the notion that the task at hand is unique and engaging social media, you help keep employees focused on the material at hand.

Additionally, discussing and practicing what you have learned in the course helps to internalize new knowledge and skills to be utilized when needed. Further, social learning can help motivate employees as they see their peers’ progress and try to keep up with them!

L&D professionals should consider social learning when designing online courses to help their employees better retain information. Social learning is a powerful tool that provides motivation, retention, and replication benefits in the classroom setting. Use these four tips to create an engaging course for your staff!
