Social collaboration adds a critical component to leadership programs for quick, engaging, and effective learning
NASHUA, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SkillSoft today announced the availability of the inGenius® social learning platform on SkillSoft Leadership Advantage (SLA), the company’s targeted leadership development solution. SkillSoft, a leading SaaS provider of e-learning and performance support solutions for global enterprises, government, education and small-to-medium-sized businesses, added inGenius social collaboration capabilities to its SLA solution to support ongoing informal learning, knowledge sharing and transfer, and the development of in-house subject matter experts. Collaboration is a key component of best-of-breed leadership development programs and the addition of inGenius to SkillSoft Leadership Advantage means that leaders within an organization can now collaborate on their development and corporate goals.
SkillSoft's inGenius social learning platform extends the value of trusted, expert information by providing opportunities for employees to contribute their knowledge and expertise in ways that build upon a company’s learning culture, strengthen ties and forge collaborative relationships among groups and individuals that might not otherwise interact.
“Social learning is now a core element and an invaluable part of today’s learning programs, and with the addition of inGenius, SLA users can now easily connect with colleagues that share their same interests or with those who offer areas of expertise they need to build upon,” said John Ambrose, senior vice president of Strategy, Corporate Development & Emerging Business for SkillSoft. “Learning becomes more collaborative, resulting in better trained employees and stronger working relationships.”
