The New Way to Collaborate, Learn and Engage

05Sep

The traditional learning management systems are failing and collaborative technologies’ power in learning is rising.

We believe that learning management systems (LMS) that were developed 15-20 years ago find it difficult to engage today’s digital learners. Old LMSs have static, lengthy and top-down approach to online learning. Today’s digital learners learn more interactively, bite-sized and on the go, have more voice in what they should learn in making them more successful at their own jobs, and most importantly they would like to be recognized for not only increasing their knowledge but also sharing it with their colleagues. According to a McKinsey study, “The most powerful applications of social technologies in the global economy are largely untapped. By using social technologies, companies can raise the productivity of knowledge workers by 20 to 25 percent.” With Sparkwork, our goal is to help our clients create engaged, vibrant and successful digital learning and knowledge sharing communities that as per the clients requirements may also extend to customers, partners and suppliers.
