Learning Pool are running a free breakfast meeting for local authorities in the East and West Midlands.
This meeting will give you the chance to see and hear what your neighboring local authorities are doing with E-Learning, hear how you can create efficiency savings using e-learning as well as give you an opportunity to share your own thoughts and ideas.
It takes place in Ripley, Derbyshire on 3 September between 9.30 and 12.30.
You can find out more and book yourself a place by visiting the Learning Pool website.
You’d be daft to miss it.
I am rather pleased to be able to let everyone know that I’m starting work for Learning Pool this month.
For those that don’t know, Learning Pool provide e-learning services to the public sector, with a focus on local government. Subscribers to the service get access to a whole library of e-learning materials, and can also buy a system known as a dynamic learning environment to run their training on.
But it’s more interesting than that, because the notion of community is at the heart of what Learning Pool do. So, any training designed and developed by a subcriber to the service can be uploaded to the pool for any other members to use, edit and reshare. Awesome!
What’s more, Learning Pool have also started to use their experience of this kind of collaborative working to great effect in building knowledge sharing networks, with one particularly successful one running in the south-east of England with several councils involved.
I’m going to be helping Learning Pool in a number of ways:
- Developing a thriving online community for e-learning at learningpool.com, for anyone with an interest, whether a customer or not, to chat with like minded folk about e-learning and related issues
- Making the most of the various social media channels to enable Learning Pool’s messages to be disseminated in a conversational style
- Developing some e-learning for the public sector on social media: the background, the tools and their application
- Special projects – where councils or other organisations need some help on a social media type project, I and the Learning Pool crew can offer a great mix of enthusiasm, inspiration and innovation as well as organisation and reliability
It’s going to be a blast. If you want to know any more, just drop me an email.
