Jalios Social Learning is a new generation LMS that enables training, communication and collaborative working to be combined and organised around the central objective of providing learning. With a social and natively collaborative technical platform behind it, it offers much more than conventional e-learning platforms.
Jalios Social Learning enables both trainers and managers to provide employees with the resources they require for their own training needs precisely when they need them, thus creating an organised system of learning in which the effort of training is replaced by the freedom to learn.
The system also enables the use of existing training modules (if compliant with the SCORM standard) and any other available sources of information or training, whether internal or external to the organisation: PowerPoint, PDF documents, intranet document resources, external MOOCs, TED or YouTube videos, tutorials, quizzes, web links, etc.
Jalios Social Learning is based on the Jalios Digital Platform, a social and collaborative web platform used by more than 250 companies and organisations, as well as by more than 900,000 intranet users and millions of web users.
Jalios Social Learning can be deployed independently or within collaborative workspaces, either locally or as SaaS.
Each item of learning content has a sheet associated with it containing its main details: title, description, topic/theme, learning objectives, author, time required, difficulty level, status, any prerequisites, languages, media type, etc.
Any type of content can have a sheet of this kind (known as a "knowledge" sheet) created for it: existing e-learning courses; quizzes; PowerPoint presentations; existing practical and administrative PDF documents; TED, Vimeo, YouTube or internally-produced videos; tutorials; external and MOOC courses; links to articles in the press or on the internet blog; and internal memos.
The various interactions that take place between participants in relation to each learning item become a usable resource for future trainees.
In addition to those responsible for providing training, any other employee or other participant can also be given authorisation to create and publish a knowledge item, enabling them to share their expertise and expand the existing catalogue content.
The user is guided through this publishing process in accordance with the specific type of content to be shared, and two modules are provided to enable the easy creation of tutorials and quizzes.
These knowledge items can be published within special collaborative "Profession" spaces, with stage-by-stage validation workflows incorporated if required.
The knowledge items can also be certified by internal experts so that participants are guided to the best quality content (based on best practice and certification).
All items of content, of whatever type, can be combined together in courses in various ways: by topic/theme (marketing, office administration, etc.), by role (sales engineer, manager, technician, etc.) or by training objective (induction, increased competence level, etc.).
To make it easier to quickly react to changing needs and requirements, courses can be created by any authorised user. Courses are constructed by simply selecting the required content and choosing the appropriate options.
Quizzes can be incorporated and used as a means of determining a trainee's readiness for the next stage or to assess whether the course has been completed.
Each course participant can see who else is taking the same course and, if required, interact with them.
