Technology has created an image of its own with a large boom in online and social media sites and tools. The online ability to approach almost all sectors of our activities have changed our usage of the web world. The huge change of online use that has led us to witness a change from web 1.0 to web 2.0
This shift of web 1.0 to 2.0 has changed the online approach of online usage of tools with respect to the purpose of use. The common usage of online tools approach shifted in the following ways:
- Reading online approach has shifted from the passive reading of website posts and pages to a contributive reading platform like blog posts, communities posts, and social networks.
- Storage has shifted from heavy local hard drives storages to light-based tools like Dropbox
- Music downloads have lessened from single-user downloads to multi-user by peer-to-peer sharing platforms (applications). Platforms like Spotify gives access to unlimited stream of music of any kind
- Heavy platforms like Photoshop can be shifted to light-weight Canva-type tools for rich media
- Publishing content now involves mass participation unlike the moderate publishing
- Travel has now involved other traveling related options by Airbnb.
This approach will be a didactical shift: From passive observation to learner participation, from teacher/trainer centered to learner/employee centered platform, from prolonged learning cycles to immediately solving real problems, from assessment to awareness, from courses to a range of learning resources.
Shifting to these approach does not mean leaving behind the existing learning and development strategies. Instead, these can be incorporated into the existing strategy for better output in the learning.
For example, tools like Easy generator can create a knowledge-sharing culture with the already existing learning strategies. Also, keep track with the learning authority tools, they are easy to master, cost-effective and allows quick creation of courses and resources.
These approaches will create an immediate solution with immediate learning and closer alignment with these strategies will escalate the reach of business goals.
