Red Hat Training and Certification aims to increase peer-to-peer learning

Digital transformation is not only changing the way businesses operate, but how they approach learning as well. Digital change has made continuous learning more important, putting pressure on employers to stay focused on employee learning or risk falling behind. But at the same time, digital transformation has made learning much more accessible. There is more training available online, on-demand than ever before. In today’s digital world, much can be learned without ever stepping foot into a traditional classroom.

But with more and more learning occurring self-paced and online, training has lost some of the social learning and interaction that was involved in a traditional classroom setting. Experts tell us that this sort of social discourse, embodied as the “20” in the popular 70:20:10 model of learning and development, is an incredibly important part of effective learning.

Since Red Hat is an organization founded on open source software development and open source principles, it was natural that we would try to find a community-driven way to bring people together around social learning. Our goal is to deepen learning experiences from self-paced digital learning and to extend and expand upon the experiences of our students attending traditional classroom and virtual instructor training. As a result, we launched an open, peer-to-peer learning community focused on anyone who wants to learn Red Hat.

The Red Hat Learning Community is designed to enable new and experienced open source users to learn about and optimize Red Hat technologies by engaging with each other. The community is open to everyone and gives members opportunities to discuss, interact, and socialize around next generation technology. We hope this will help create immersive learning experiences for everyone, including our customers, partners and our own Red Hat employees, to facilitate the development of open source skills and best practices.
