"Social learning is becoming a key requirement in learning management. Social is being embraced at varying rates of speed by suppliers, with a few redesigning with a social-first perspective, while others take a more wait-and-see approach," says Lisa Rowan, research vice president, HR, Talent, and Learning Strategies for IDC. "According to IDC's survey of HR decision makers, more than half see integration of social and learning as important or very important."
