According to Jennifer De Vries, President of BlueStreak Learning, “Many education programs provide one-way communication that pushes information out to learners. However, research studies have proven that people learn when they are engaged in the learning process. The premise of collaborative learning is that learners don’t just learn from a course or an instructor; they also learn from each other. Web-based collaborative eLearning environments are developed to facilitate both the formal learning from an instructor or a course, as well as the informal learning occurs with peer interaction.”
“Our collaborative eLearning courses are built around facilitating interactions among students and faculty alike, encouraging experienced professionals to engage with each other around relevant content,” said Lance Simon, Vice President of Client Services for iCohere. “When everyone in the group shares their professional stories, we often end up taking away a set of memorable lessons and best practices that participants can immediately use on the job.”
