Informal learning already happens all the time. Your experts need a way to transfer knowledge of how internal things work. They ad-hoc approach is inefficient and unaccounted for.
Formalize it. Make it easier for experts to share their knowledge.
Unblock those lacking skills to do their job. Create a culture where your people learn from one another. The moral will go up. You’ll have a nimble team adaptable to whatever comes up next.
We call this Peer Learning.
As an expert, sharing my skills is easy. The system helps me promote my classes. It also manages logistics and registrations. All I have to do is show up & teach. Empowering others feels great.
As an employee, I need to figure out internal tools and processes. Now I have a way to discover relevant learning opportunities. This helps me up-level my skills so I can do the best work of my life.
As a learning professional, I get to create a culture where we celebrate learning. Our people feel empowered. We have a nimble and adaptable team.
We’ve created best practices for enabling your people to learn from one another. These are the lessons we learned from creating Twitter University. We bottled them up in a framework we call Peer Learning. It’s free.
To help you roll out Peer Learning at your organization, we’ve created PlusPlus.co app. It modernizes learning at your organization.
In 2013, Twitter acquired Marakana, a software training company. Twitter University was born. It quickly became apparent that what engineers were struggling with was knowledge of how internal processes work.
Surprisingly, engineers were more than open to sharing their knowledge. Soon, hundreds of internal experts taught thousands of engineers on how Twitter works and how we work at Twitter. Sales and design teams followed engineers footsteps. People loved it! Twitter University became one of the highest rated perks at Twitter.
PlusPlus is on the mission to create the magic of peer learning for other organizations.
