Social Learning LMS, the way of bringing people together to empower your LMS courses or training programs
Social learning LMS is a collaborative learning method where users enjoy an enhanced educational experience thanks to the social component. Education must adapt to new trends and forms of communication to stay current. This implies the adoption of innovative, modern and more agile methods in terms of delivering knowledge and communication.
The idea behind social learning in LMS is to give your users an opportunity to exchange their ideas, learning experiences and everything they feel worthy of sharing. Social learning involves learning through observation of other people’s attitudes, views, behaviors, and outcomes of those behaviors. The learner then imitates those behaviors or attitudes and then models them. What your employees observe through social media or any interactive platform is then later used as a guide to building their ideas about how to acquire new behaviors.
This method of education seeks to offer possibilities of rapprochement between users and constant support between these and their coaches. Compared to traditional learning methods, social learning LMS is not scheduled or follows an exact learning program, but it moves by solving the question that the users get during their training processes, working on their ideas and generating a collaborative environment.
We know that the learning process doesn’t stop when learners leave the LMS, and that interacting socially with coworkers is a vital part of the learning process. Paradiso LMS Social Learning ensures that social interactions, formal or informal, are recorded and tracked.
Social learning could be pretty fun. If you have been through a classroom situation, then you definitely have tasted the fatigue that comes with boring lectures or lessons. It is a common thing to doze off in such classes. But social learning is entertaining while it educates, so all parts of the process can effectively sink naturally.
In simple terms, social learning is equivalent to the summative of students’ engagement and their interaction with each other. Here is where Paradiso Solutions effectively comes in. With our Learning Management System, your social learning concerns are perfectly sorted.

Instructors can provide rapid feedback on any piece of work, but the real value comes from informal feedback from peers. You can then respond to comments and work together to make the work better.
Learning through Interactions
Almost all of us use some form of social media on a daily basis. We know how to share, comment and cooperate. Social learning leverages the same inclinations to sharing but applies them to a corporate context.
Boost knowledge retention
One of the biggest problems faced by instructors is getting what they teach to stick. Informal and social learning increases knowledge retention by making the learning process fun by making the information available the way the learner wants it.
