Top 15 learning tools in the universe*

The Universe. KnowledgePass in in here...

The Universe. KnowledgePass is in here…

A little after oh-six-hundred this morning, my coffee and I finally got around to viewing the viral slideshare presentation, Mary Meeker’s state of the internet. Liang Wu was the co-presenter, but Mary got the headline… Anyway, it’s an epic 119 slides, but I didn’t need the coffee to stay focused on all of them. At slide 108, I stared a while. Think about it: Twitter is considered the #1 learning platform. Well, based on a survey of 528 learning professionals…

Learning tools

Why? It’s all about the value of curation. I like Naomi Bloom’s description:

“One of the best uses for social technology, especially if you’re discerning about whom you follow on Twitter or in which discussion groups you participate on LinkedIn, is the value of curation, of people/organizations you respect pointing you to great articles, blog posts, books, conferences and more.”

I was extremely disappointed not seeing our KnowledgePass on the list. Clearly, I’m not doing my job. It is part of our customer portal, and has been delivering curated Kronos learning content for over 7 years! This KnowledgePass newsletter will explain better than I can. The amount of content is immense. Like the universe. Here’s just one example from billions and billions:

Workforce Timekeeper 6.3 – Monitoring Overtime (with sandbox)

So yeah, we’re not Twitter in terms of sheer volume, but we have a sandbox, and if you’re a Kronos customer, KnowledgePass (password required) should be one of your top learning tools, and a bookmarked favorite.

* That we know of. The universe is a pretty big place.
