SharePoint Update

SharePoint in Corporate Learning

One of the hardest things for me to find are good examples of how people are really using web 2.0 inside organizations. This is a great opportunity to hear lots of examples of what they are doing with SharePoint around Corporate Learning in a wide variety of organizations.

Live Sessions:

  • Tuesday March 10, 8 - 10 AM Pacific
  • Thursday March 12, 8 - 9 AM Pacific

Community discussion will occur in between.

Register Here. If you are interested in attending, go to the Learn Trends Ning Site and sign-up. Make sure you register for the event. We will make announcements through that site.

Michael Palko

Solution Education Manager

Michael will talk about how he's using SharePoint to manage The Training Space, an internal learning community that connects and "cross pollinates" teams. Community members contribute their own unique experience and draw from the group’s collective intelligence using all the tools that web 2.0 has to offer.

Includes a corporate calendar to show where the workshop is taught worldwide, and a discussion board for sharing best-known-methods. We’ll talk about what has worked… and what has not.
