Consequences of skipping formal learning

San Jose, Ca, Airport: Mobile log

I am curious and have to research this issue. Please help.

Do Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0 offer solutions for supporting formal learning, specifically micro-learning? I do not refer to classroom training.

I am referring to what happens from the time the learners pick up the information and knowledge (from collaboration and sharing) to the time the learners APPLY the idea.

Self expression, sharing and collaboration are great learning agents. But how do we help the learners apply what they learn and become skillful? What should they do to reduce errors and speed up learning?

Please let me know if you have thoughts and research on this.
