I have been working on SuccessFactors Learning management from past 3.5 years & went through numerous trainings and What i felt that , Some training makes perfect sense as a “single player game”. Harassment awareness training, for example, doesn’t need much discussion beyond an annual, self-paced online module – hopefully.
While other needs a broader view and can be far more effective when you make it “3-dimensional” – incorporating the added dimension of social collaboration. Today’s mature learner wants to be involved in the discussion, not simply talked to and tested.
From my past experiences, I feel that the three trends which influence the social learning are: Collaborating Seamlessly, Human Interaction, Personalizing your learning.
Now let’s talk about SAP Jam – At the heart of SAP Jam is the Group (Private or Public). Groups provide a place to interact around a specific topic, incorporating elements of document sharing, contents, Wikis, Feeds update, discussion boards, mentoring, ability to record instructional videos, and more.
When SuccessFactors Learning is integrated with SAP Jam, you gain the ability to associate Items (Training) with existing SAP Jam Groups, or to auto-generate a new SAP Jam Group for a given Item. When learners enroll in the Item, or it is assigned to them, they receive an email notification inviting them to the Group, where they can collaborate concurrent with the training. In the case of Instructor-led Training, Groups can also be associated at the Scheduled Offering level. Alternately, the trigger for Group membership can be completion of an Item – providing a way for learners to continue to share and collaborate as they apply knowledge gained while discussing on SAP Jam group.
The SF Learning/SAP Jam integration is also fully supported on most Mobile devices (Android, iOS) , via use of the BizX Mobile App. and as a learner you can access SAP Jam group, video, documents, content from mobile device.

Conclusion: SAP Jam Reinforce a culture of continuous and collaborative learning. It helps increase the effectiveness of your employees by tapping into their natural learning styles. Using discovery, collaboration, peer resources and expert finding, your employees will find new and inventive ways to get answers and further their on-the-job learning experience.
