15 months ago SAP announced first version of Learning Hub at TechEd Madrid. They have taken input as to what is needed for an affordable accessible solution
SAP announced in January that they did a technology transition from SAP Learning Solution to SuccessFactors Learning Solution with new capabilities and can present content for free in the Discovery area.
Anyone can subscribe to the 140 courses at no cost.
SAP responded to SAP Certification Education Influence Council feedback that people want to “learn from SAP before buy”
They are seeing web registrations of 200 per day
Subscription to Learning Hub includes all access, access to JAM layer – learning rooms. JAM is an asynchronous learning experience
SAP is also launching live access with an individual purchase for a segment of time over a 1-2-3 month period
Students have their own image and practice scope

The number of subscriptions is at 27K subscriptions and growing.
SAP is looking to refresh the discovery layer – it is not a fixed set of content
Coming soon SAP will offer SuccessFactors titles
Live Access includes 60 images per classroom. The student decides if they want this image for 20-40-60 hours, time is metered when access image – they can start and stop image to fit calendar – like a prepaid phone
Social Learning Rooms include a structured in a mock concept. Instructors have a syllabus/scope of training, learning activities, recommendations for live access – new group of individuals – experimenting with facilitation and an asynchronous remote
Please note that Live Access is only in certain countries and not yet launched fully.

How does openSAP fit to Learning Hub? OpenSAP has a broad charter with bringing strategic topics to a large community
The OpenSAP cope is limited to strategic items to entice a broad number of people. It is “knowledge transfer for masses”, offering a baseline layer of knowledge to a broad audience
Learning Hub is a Social learning hub with a job path, deliberate job
Right side of graphic of Figure 3 is the SAP Jam world – much like openSAP – assignments, when is instructor is available – kept to a smaller size of students, heavy touch to students
Learning hub is to create skilled resources; “one step in a journey” – it is a path

Figure 4 shows the roadmap (always subject to change). SAP is looking at the ability to customize content for internal use for the enterprise customer.
They plan to look at crowd sourcing to solicit support from partners and customers
An attendee asked about Learning Hub with SAP University Alliance. SAP’s response: “there is a project underway and soon there will be SAP Learning Hub, student edition.”
