Facebook Workplace isn’t a traditional LMS, but it’s a smart tool for internal online learning solutions. In fact, you can hack Workplace to make it work for your team as an LMS.
Workplace is ideal if you want internal members or employees to collaborate on content. It allows for the ultimate form of social learning: collaboration via social media. You can post videos as the host and your learners can post videos freely, too.
The best thing about Workplace is that it encourages engagement between your learners. If you’re teaching a relatively small group and want your learners to intuitively understand the platform, go for Facebook.
We also like Facebook Workplace as an LMS workaround because it naturally encourages engagement. While your standard video LMS won’t encourage discussion groups or forums, your learners are probably active on social media applications like Facebook. You’re using a platform people already go to and understand, which naturally builds community.
If you don’t want to use Facebook Workplace, a regular Facebook Group can work, too! Keep in mind that it won’t have the same features as Workplace, but it’s a great internal solution nonetheless.
