The advent of Web 2.0, in which everyone can create content, and we can all be our own publisher, has brought with it new and low-cost opportunities for trainers to enhance and extend the traditional training experience. Join Shannon Tipton for a tour of real-world, concrete ideas for incorporating social media tools into your training programs.

This webinar will take a high-level look at Twitter (microblogs), Facebook, LinkedIn, blogs, wikis, among other technologies. Along the way we will examine specific strategies for leveraging the strengths of each, and choosing which to use when. While we will discuss concepts like social learning, learning communities, and overcoming barriers, the focus of this program is on specific training activities that social media tools can facilitate.
