One of the first Learning Rooms we set up was intended for SAP developers. This first Learning Room was a game changer! It combined self-study learning materials with exercises and systems for practicing, collaboration, and active moderation. Overtime, more than 2,000 developers joined the room, learned from each other and from the experts. Instead of just going through some training materials, participants were able to ask questions, upload their examples, share their experience and get feedback on their work. Much more fun than studying on your own! Today, we have more than 40,000 learners in more than 80 Learning Rooms on SAP Learning Hub.
But why did we call them “Learning Rooms” and not communities? The answer is simple. A room is a secure environment, it protects you and is only for a smaller group of people. It is not for everyone, but for learners. Unlike a larger community, a Learning Room has defined learning objectives and just like in a real classroom, there is an instructor guiding and helping you individually.
Today, SAP is offering Learning Rooms on SAP Learning Hub for all major solution areas and important key topics. All Learning Rooms are actively moderated by SAP instructors and experts and allow participants to collaborate and interact with each other. Key elements of a Learning Room are:
- Learning map with selected self-study materials
- Discussion forums for knowledge sharing and collaboration
- User generated content with updates and examples from experts and other learners
- Live Access Systems (optional): Access to training systems
- Info sessions (optional): Live and recorded webinars and audio conferences
Many Learning Rooms that SAP is offering on SAP Learning Hub help you with preparing for the certification exam, so you can become a certified associate consultant. But even if you are not interested in certification, you will benefit from the detailed knowledge that is shared in the Learning Rooms.
Keeping Up-To-Date with Learning Rooms
The benefit of Learning Rooms is not only that you as a learner are always able to contact an SAP instructor or expert if you have questions about the training materials; you can also easily stay up-to-date with your topic. The SAP trainer or expert is publishing regular updates and news to which you can subscribe once you have joined the room.
