  • We love social... or is it collaborative learning?

    Posted 03-06-2014, by LearningStone

    In our daily practice, we often have to switch back and forth between the words collaborative and social. We see collaborative learning as those active moments of learning together in groups versus social learning as ongoing learning in an organization through ‘social’ connections.

  • New: Pinning groups to your topbar.

    Posted 24-04-2014, by LearningStone

    As you know, LearningStone offers workspaces with one or more groups, which are like virtual classrooms. Most LearningStone users don’t see much more than the one group they are a member of.


    If you’re a trainer or group manager you might have noticed that you’re were getting more and more groups stuck to your top bar. To help you organize the groups a bit we introduced pinning to the top bar. All you have to do, is click on a star to favorite a group and it will remain attached to the top bar. Click on it again, and it will be gone as soon as your leave that group.


    If you’re looking for any other group, just click on My Groups and you’ll see a new so called mega menu fold out and show all the starred and unstarred groups you are a member of.
