I recently joined Jane Harts Social Learning Community – a new Community of Practice intended for those interested in the use of social media to work and learn smarter.
This is a place where you can join discussions, ask questions, share links, experiences and events with others about social learning – whether it be in education or in the workplace. Jay Cross calls it “the living room for social learning conversations”!
One of the discussions I have been following is how to use Yammer.
- Jane Hart links to a case study for the use of Yammer by a university for a hazard assessment response scenario. “The Yammer Blog: Stop, Drop, and Roll…out Yammer
- Tom Carroll posted a a 27-min video interview by Robert Scoble of Yammer’s CEO, David Sacks along with his 2 big takeaways
- “We think conversations are very important. It’s not just about posting a status update; it’s about creating a true sort of real-time conversation stream.”
- “Yammer communities is a very important extension of what enterprise microblogging is. We’re trying to enable B2B communication.”
