Totara Social

With the explosion of social media in recent years, organisations are rethinking their learning strategies to include social tools. Social learning has gained some real momentum over the last 12 months, with the emergence of Enterprise Social Networks (ESN) such as Totara Social.

Social Learning involves learning from each other through collaboration, sharing and networking using tools such as forums, blogs and shared content.
