Crowd learning takes center stage at Symbal HR event hosted by Axis Communications

The year’s first meeting of the Symbal HR and Learning Network was held at Axis Communications. The team behind Axis Academy told the captivating story behind their successful learning concept for partners and distributors around the world. Axis’ unique approach to learning as a strategic and competitive advantage gave the attendees a fresh perspective. Learn more at www.axis.com/academy.

The network was treated to a presentation from guest speaker Torvald Jacobsson from Edumanity. Edumanity was born out of a pioneering social learning project at Lund University. The company has developed its own methodology and technological platform based on crowd learning.

Crowd learning suits the modern workplace as it’s based on social networking, mobility and personalization. It makes an excellent complement to formal learning by answering a fundamental question all big companies struggle with: How do you facilitate an organic exchange of know-how in a large organization?

Many in the learning industry approach learning according to the 70-20-10 model. While many have mastered the 10% that covers formal education, few have found the key to unlocking the full potential of the 70% of learning that happens on the job. Crowd learning could be that key. A smart crowd learning platform lets people seek answers in real-time by drawing on the crowd’s real world experience. In comparative studies of learning complex topics, crowd-learning yielded better results than traditional classroom learning or e-learning.

Together, Edumanity and Symbal are bringing two new concepts to market in 2015. The concepts will leverage the power of crowd learning to unlock companies’ potential for innovation and facilitate the on-boarding of new hires.
