Description
Content

This is the second e-book on practical learning for adults. E-learning has proved to be an efficient and cost effective method of learning on-line. Social media like Facebook and YouTube provide internet tools facilitating and enhancing the sharing of information and learning between users. MOOCs (massive open on-line courses) will democratise education.   For a growing number of companies, the way to help employees to keep up-to-date is social media – collaborative, just-in-time, relevant and presented in a workplace context. Benefits include: increased productivity and the sharing of expertise and knowledge.
