E-Learning: The World's Largest Classroom Soon after Sun rolled out Safari Books to its first 1, users, hundreds of other Sun employees began clamoring for access to it, according to Christy Confetti Higgins, a program manager in Sun's Digital Libraries and Research group—a team of four people within Sun's Learning Services organization, which provides e-learning and training content for the company.

The Digital Libraries and Research group is responsible for making sure Sun's 34, employees have access to all the e-books, online journals and market research they need to do their jobs. Higgins said she had to kick inactive users off the subscription to make room for employees on a waiting list.

This comprehensive online course teaches you how. Today, 5, Sun employees actively use Safari Books Online to get answers to pressing technical questions, to learn new technologies, to read books on management and to provide feedback to book authors.

After all, the subscription to Safari Books Online lets Sun's technical workers keep their skills up to date and remain at the forefront of the ever-changing technology landscape. Neeraj Mathur, a principal web technologist and technical program manager with Sun, says Safari Books Online is an invaluable resource.

Just as humans can't survive without water, engineers can't survive without quick access to information, he says. Sun's deployment of Safari Books Online has been successful because the company has downloadd a resource that's truly valuable to employees, because Sun has properly promoted it, and because Sun has made it easy for employees to access.

According to a May report from Forrester Research on learning strategies, for training and educational resources to be effective, employees must be comfortable with them, and the tools must be placed in the context of the work they need to complete on a day to day basis.

That's certainly the case with Safari Books Online. If you're having problems getting users to adopt training and educational tools you've deployed, you might want to take a cue from the measures Sun Microsystems took to promote the use of Safari Books Online.

Integrate it with your Google Search Appliance. Sun's Learning Services organization originally deployed Google's Search Appliance in on a learning portal for employees so that when employees needed information on particular topic, say Java Beans, they could use Google to search all of Sun's internal content on Java Beans, which includes courses, technical documentation and marketing materials, as well as content from external third parties, such as market researchers. The group wanted Safari Books' content to show up in search results when people used Google.

Higgins says the goal in integrating Safari Books with the Google search appliance was to make Sun employees aware that Safari Books was a new resource available at their fingertips.

2. Integrate the training service with key websites inside your company.

Higgins says members of Sun's learning services organization worked with engineers from Safari to create a module called a One Box that's part of Google's Search Appliance. The One Box allows users to hook external content into Google's search results. So when a user types a keyword into the search box, the One Box sends a query to Safari Books through a gateway and brings back two examples of relevant results from Safari Books as well as a link to all the other relevant results from Safari.

When a user clicks on one of the results from Safari, they automatically get sent directly to Sun's Safari Books Online page.

Integrate the training service with key websites inside your company. Sun's Digital Libraries and Research group put links to Safari Books Online on internal websites geared toward the employees who use Safari Books the most: Sun engineers and members of the company's research and development staff. Internal engineering wikis feature pages listing titles from SMI Press, which is a publishing partnership between Sun and Pearson. We put the links where employees do their daily learning. Integrate it with search visualization tools.

Sun uses a search visualization tool called Grokker to make sifting through voluminous amounts of search results quicker and easier for employees.

Internal engineering wikis feature pages listing titles from SMI Press, which is a publishing partnership between Sun and Pearson. We put the links where employees do their daily learning. Integrate it with search visualization tools. Sun uses a search visualization tool called Grokker to make sifting through voluminous amounts of search results quicker and easier for employees.

Grokker filters search content into different categories. Each category is represented by a circle on a visual map of the information. By clicking on one of those circles, users can zoom in and out of each category to get a sense of the information they contain.

Since Safari Books provides so much useful content to Sun, the company wanted to make sure Grokker picked up search results from Safari. Grokker searches all third party content to which Sun subscribes. She says Grokker had to create a connector into Safari and get permissions to send queries through a specific XML gateway that Safari had to set up to enable a transfer of information and to make sure Grokker was pulling the right information from Safari.

He recently used Grokker to do a search on agile project management. He was specifically looking for ways to ingrain the principles of agile project management into his team. Within a matter of minutes, he had the information he was looking for. With Safari Books Online, says Mathur, "you can find the information you're looking for and explore 10 to 20 books in maybe an hour's time.

Make it easy for users to access beyond the firewall. Since Sun engineers look to content from Safari Books Online when they're trying to solve an immediate technical problem, they need to be able to access Safari's content anytime, any place, whether they're working from home or in a client's office. To make access easy for users, the Digital Libraries and Research group set up Sun's Safari Books website so that it's public.

It's outside of Sun's network and doesn't require IP authentication from Sun. The fewer clicks we have to do to find information, the more time we can spend picking up information and putting it to good use," he says.

One feature of Sun's Safari Books subscription that Higgins says is particularly useful to Sun's knowledge workers is the ability to download chapters of books onto their hard drives so that they don't have to be connected to the Internet to access Safari content. Mathur loves this feature because it enables him to catch up on his reading during long flights from his office in New Dehli to his office in Menlo Park.

Promote the service and train employees how to use it.

Higgins says the Digital Libraries and Research group launched a campaign to promote its subscription to Safari Books Online throughout the company. They put posters advertising Safari Books Online in Sun offices around the world.

They stuffed postcards that plugged Safari Books into welcome bags for the 3, to 4, Sun engineers who attended the company's big engineering conference in They also wrote about Safari, its features and content on Sun's many blogs.I'm a big fan of Susie Kelly and her travels.
