Redmondt, WA, August 12, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Harbinger Knowledge Products is poised to take eLearning to the next level with the FlockPod beta release announced recently. The company that introduced Raptivity, the world’s first rapid interactivity builder to the eLearning space now brings social interaction to users’ fingertips with FlockPod. This software subscription service enables collaboration on any web page to serve a dual purpose - facilitate social learning and augment the content itself.
The central idea of FlockPod is to provide a space on any web page for users to collaborate and learn right on-the-spot, to share ideas, opinions or sometimes even to question or debate. Such a social learning tool could have many applications within an organization such as, collaborating on internal projects, threaded discussions on a topic, group assignments, peer support, hand raising and debates, just to name some.
“Experts and learners all would agree that a challenge facing eLearning today is the absence of social interaction and informal learning, which otherwise happens naturally in traditional learning forums such as classrooms or conferences. FlockPod’s patent pending technology aims to fill just this gap”, said Vikas Joshi, Chairman and Managing Director, Harbinger Group about this novel innovation. “With FlockPod, people can go beyond the presented content, either to share more interesting information on the topic or to gain valuable insights from peer contribution. What’s more, FlockPod is a secure, scalable environment offering real-time and relevant view of the shared information, thus creating value not only for people but also for the presented content.”
FlockPod is really easy to subscribe to, integrate and use, requiring absolutely no download or installation. That coupled with FlockPod’s visually appealing and functionally sound interface lends itself to a satisfying user experience.
Talking about the unique hosted service FlockPod, Seema Chaudhary, Director, Harbinger Knowledge Products said, "Content creators can now leverage the benefits of web2.0 technology for learning. People can act, interact and react in context, to create a truly collaborative learning experience. Unlike wikis and discussion forums, FlockPod delivers the knowledge right in context of the webpage, while providing a more controlled environment for the content owners to guide the interaction".
