Innovating on Tradition: Using Jive to Build Social Learning Experiences


The University of Chicago recently implemented a Jive-x community in early 2016 in pilot phase with a full rollout in Fall 2016 as a lifelong learning community for our alumni population. This project has been a bold step forward for a traditional in-person alumni association. Our story is particularly interesting for those customers considering expanding their use of Jive for learning functionality or for customers dealing with challenging governance models and an institutional culture unaccustomed to digital engagement.


In this talk, I will describe our rollout experience, goals and progress so far, and some of the challenges we have faced – including our shared governance model and our unique demands on the Jive platform.
