Social Learning can increase learning adoption, decrease time to performance and helps lower learning costs while increasing employee performance. Social Learning is directly integrated with the formal LMS allowing users to easily find content through one connected search across formal and informal content to find the best resources to sharpen their skills.

• Unique ‘Content-as-a-Service’ (CaaS) – SuccessFactors iContent uniquely provides content distribution and management in the cloud, as a service, taking the headache and hassle out of managing digital learning assets, from online courseware to on-demand presentations and video, and provides learners with reliable, high-quality on-demand access to both off-the-shelf and custom content.
