This was originally posted in linkedin and it is one of the visions i have that can become a very interesting real world case use bringing quality content and real people to steemit.
As an automation engineer and a training manager I see endless possibilities of using block-chain technology to reward industry workers and incentivize them in joining off the work training programs.
eLearning Strategies and blockchain technology can Enable Successful Intra-Organizational Knowledge Transfer.
There are a few block-chains that apart from the monetary ledger offer social interaction capabilities and are more or less a key in hand solution for companies looking in to motivating their employees into spending their free time learning and developing their competencies and skillset.
Imagine something Facebook like where people engagement and participation is rewarded with tradeable tokens that can be converted in FIAT money.
Most companies have tried in the past to create forums and incentive employees to share they know-how and create an in-house crowd sourced knowledge base, but having no economic incentive, these initiatives have never been adopted by the employees and eventually have died.
I have been exploring the resilience of the graphene based block-chains for the last 3 years in my spare time, their economic models and the impact of the inflationary effect to generate rewards.
I also have successfully created a few communities using collaborative tools and managed to retain and incentive participation in educational activities by using the rewards of the current block-chains in place.
- How much is your company’s yearly budget in training, how much of it goes to overheads in travel expenses either mobilizing trainers either mobilizing trainees to where the training is done.
- What is the knowledge exchange ratio amongst your employees? (organic knowledge transfer)
Now imagine that with a fraction of the yearly costs, you can run a thriving community open to both your employees and to external advisors, in an environment where knowledge transfer occurs organically and the participants are economically rewarded thus incentivizing their participation, adoption and retention rate.
It can be setup in a way that is private by invitation only to avoid leaking sensitive information about your operations, or a public consultable searchable knowledge base about your industry sector fueled by the know-how of all actors of the segment.
I am currently exploring paths and cases of study, while working into programming an interface to interact with the blockchains.
I am interested in your feedback and your questions, as it will very valuable input for the development of the prototype.
I am currently running a closed experiment with a block-chain main-net using an open source block-chain technology (STEEM) and exploring the proper reward’s allocation model and the proper monetary policy for the private sector.
Working into turning a Distributed Stake Based Rewards allocation (DPOB) model into a Centralized Stake Rewards Proof of Brain model to sustain the individual interest into crowdsourcing organic knowledge exchanges and transfers.
