Howspace is a social learning platform that helps you move away from content and performance-driven e-learning to a collaborative culture of continuous learning.Start free trial
According to the 70/20/10 rule, up to 20% of learning happens in developmental relationships. Where most learning platforms focus on one-way content delivery, Howspace empowers you to facilitate dialogue and bring social learning to the forefront. The social media like environment makes it easy and engaging for participants to work and reflect together.
Use Howspace before a program starts to help participants get familiar with the objectives or to gauge initial interest and skill levels. Once a program has kicked off, you can create assignments, discussions, upload content, or book 1-1 coaching sessions to extend the impact. By spacing learning over time you will help participants learn in the flow of work and deepen their engagement.
One of the biggest challenges with traditional learning programs is that full-time learning days can be impossible to schedule or fit in. Howspace gives you the freedom to choose when you’re ready to learn. Howspace gives people the opportunity to join the learning process whenever they want, from wherever they are, and from the device of their choice.
69% of employees are more likely to stay with a company for three years if they had a good onboarding experience. That’s why it’s crucial to make learning a priority right away. Since Howspace's platform makes learning social, colleagues can get inspired and even mentor each other. But the learning shouldn’t stop after being onboarded.
94% of employees would stay with a company longer if they invested in learning. Companies that nurture their employees’ development gain a clear competitive advantage. And when learning becomes a priority, this translates into employees working harder, a desire to learn more in the future, and higher employee retention.
Less than half of companies provide post-training reinforcement, but those who do see 34% more first-year sales reps achieve their quota. Howspace can help you build your training program, get the members of your sales selling sooner, and retain outstanding performers. Use Howspace's social learning platform as a hub to deliver company and product content, as well as a place to encourage some healthy competition with other colleagues.
Empower your customers, partners, or members with an interactive training program built on Howspace, that can be accessed from anywhere at their convenience. Not only will you make them experts on your products and services, but you’ll build brand loyalty and create an army of evangelists. Not to mention your trouble tickets and churn will decrease.
Howspace goes beyond instant messaging and gives facilitators the power to guide a dialogue. The facilitator-driven chat features help with reflection, setting goals, monitoring progress, peer review/support, teamwork, mentoring, and much more. To take it a step further, Howspace’s AI clustering features can instantly analyze a discussion to identify the most important topics and themes.
Blended learning combines online and offline learning, with a touch of self-directed learning. Microlearning is an essential part of blended learning, where content is delivered in easily-digestible, bite-sized chunks that are engaging and easy to remember. These methods are at the heart of how Howspace works. By spacing training programs over time, you’ll make a bigger impact and create post-session sustainability.
Howspace workspaces are simple to create and no coding skills are needed. Just drag and drop widgets to create polls, assignments, tests, videos, and much more. The social learning platform is highly intuitive and doesn’t require any formal training. You can also easily create different user groups to personalize learning journeys or restrict content or discussions to administrators and certain groups.
Create a dedicated workspace for your learning program with our intuitive drag-and-drop editor. By creating a noiseless workspace, participants can focus on their own journey. You can also create different pages to categorize items or separate different user groups. Think of it like being able to build your own learning website just the way you want, without any complicated coding.
Create customized assignments and exams to support on-the-job learning and track the learning progress of each individual. You can also enhance learning experiences with small group activities or 1-2-1 sessions. Howspace has a booking feature that lets participants book appointments from a list of time slots, where the number of seats available can be defined.
When you're ready to draw conclusions from a particular discussion, you can use Howspace's built-in AI-powered clustering features to analyze the data. Simply choose a discussion, and Howspace can create a summary, cluster, sentiment analysis, or word cloud of the most important topics or answers.
With Howspace, you can facilitate real-time chat conversations, polls, surveys, or other activities. Administrators can hide discussions or provide specific guidance after receiving responses. You can also email participants directly from Howspace in case you need to nudge them to provide input.
Every learning experience is a two-way street. Howspace allows you to create different kinds of feedback loops, and iterate learning programs based on participants' comments and even through simple “likes”. This can be done through a variety of different Howspace widgets:
Share any type of content: text, images, videos, PDFs, presentations, or other types through the File Sharing widget. Howspace also has a handy Embed widget that lets you incorporate 3rd party content.
“Our premise is grounded in experiential & emergent learning. Instead of making predeterminations, we build on themes and peer-to-peer learning. This aligns with Howspace’s philosophy and how we approach learning.”

“You can basically build a website for your learning program really quickly, and you’re only limited by your imagination. Tell me what that is, and we’ll go build it. And in every instance, we’ve been able to do that.”
