Have you ever thought about taking some training or creating a video that maybe your colleagues would benefit from? Collaborative learning can result in a more educated and skillful workforce. For some people, a little extra guidance or engagement might make a difference between excelling at work or falling a bit behind. That is why collaborative learning environments are very important in the success of many companies worldwide. Not all companies are able to provide one on one training therefore there are tools that encourage knowledge transfers between employees. Workday Learning is a module within a software that helps enterprises around the globe solve their biggest challenges. Workday Learning combines peer- generated content, interactive media and learning management in a single application. Employees are able to listen to videos, produce content, engage with fellow coworkers all on the go. This tool allows for a collaborative learning environment where working together, people can learn from one another to develop knowledge and skills. For a stronger sense of togetherness. 
What exactly is a collaborative learning environment? one might ask. It really is about allowing the flow of knowledge and skills to be transferred between employees in an engaged workforce. Throughout the years this has become much easier to apply given the access to broadband internet, file sharing and advances in technology many of us have. By working closely with others we are able to share ideas, perspectives and knowledge in projects and become much more aware of how others think and work. By working closely with others even in different departments one can get a better sense of how the company works as a whole. One company that has a great take on collaborative learning is Google. Google strives to work together as a team by sharing ideas and skills this allows for more productivity in my opinion. 
Workday learning delivers a different approach by elevating learning from a disconnected, rigid experience to one that is consumer-like, on demand, relevant, and personalized. Workday Learning combines professional development, peer learning, and required training into a single intuitive application, so workers can engage in learning like never before.
