Open-source is a well-known concept in software development, but what lessons might learning and development professionals be able to draw from the open-source approach?
The concept of open-source, with its focus on collaboration, innovation and community creation, has been common in the software development world for years. You will be familiar with open-source software used by millions of people on a daily basis such as Android, Firefox and Linux.
This Personnel Today webinar, in association with Panopto, examines what the open-source approach has to offer L&D professionals.
Watch this webinar now to find out how some now-familiar L&D activities can easily be considered through an open-source lens — concepts like:
- Social learning
- User-generated content
- Just-in-time learning.
All these ideas centre on employee communities coming together to solve learning challenges in an agile, iterative way, in a similar way in which open-source developers might build on a code base.
‘Open-source learning’ – a new approach to sharing knowledge (webinar)
