Still, the concept of UGC can be scary for some. With Workday Learning, UGC is not an all-or-nothing proposition. The extent to which an organization creates approvals or guidelines is up to them.
For example, in Workday Learning you can target content creation rights to your organization’s subject matter experts, and then expand UGC as it makes sense. If your organization decides a review process is important, you can leverage Workday’s business process framework to put a review and approval process in place, and establish access rights to various content based on roles.
As you plan for UGC, another consideration is the longevity of your content. You may want to preserve some UGC for years to come, such as interviews with subject matter experts, conducted in a studio setting, on the core competencies of your business. Other UGC may be short videos on topics that are helpful and relevant that some employees care for now, but may not matter so much a year down the road. In the latter instance, you could rely on employee ratings of the videos to allow more popular content to filter to the top—a self-selection process that leaves it up to viewers to decide what fits the bill.
The options and approaches are limitless, depending on the comfort level, need, and learning strategy of your organization. What’s important is that Workday Learning provides a mobile-first, consumer-grade approach to learning and knowledge sharing, and has the ability to recommend content based on an employee’s preferences, preferred topics, and the way in which they interact with the application itself. It’s an incredibly innovative approach to learning, and we’re thrilled to partner with Workday to bring this modern platform to global enterprises.
