How To Include User Generated Content In Online Training
User-contributed online articles, step-by-step guides and how-to videos are a go-to for many web surfers. Within the training industry, these resources are generally considered unverified because the content isn’t deeply researched or fact-checked. But it offers a good starting point for any query. It brings broad strokes and knowledge threads you can pursue. And the very thing that makes it unreliable also makes it viable – crowdsourcing. It feels genuine because it comes from ‘people just like you’, rather than potentially intimidating industry experts. Is there a way to tap into this psychological link for corporate training? Or even a way to leverage the expertise of people inside your organization by granting them a channel to share their collective wisdom? Here are some top tips and techniques to incorporate user-generated content into your online training.
