The Accebatabilty of Social Media for Enhancing and Extending Learning was a small study looking at the historical use of social media for business training through an instructional design lens. While social media was relatively young at the time, companies started to use it to enhance their employees' learning. Some took to it, while others did not. 85% of employees were willing to use social media for training. Still, only five employees knew how an employer could use social media for training and had concerns about using this as a job requirement. This study focused on the employee's willingness to use social media for training on the job as a requirement and as a non-required supplemental tool. The purpose was to find the acceptance rates for using social media on the job for both formal and informal learning. The company reviewed was a transportation logistical company in the Twin Cities Metro.
