e-learning at work – systematic literature review

by | Jan 1, 2007 | Articles

Learning Light, a member of the work based e-learning project advisory network has completed a systematic literature review of the research that has been conducted in the use of learning technologies in the workplace. Their aim is to identify any gaps for future research.  In particular they are trying to answer the following questions: 

  • What is the extent of use of learning technologies in the workplace?
  • What is the impact/effectiveness of the use of learning technologies in the workplace?
  • What are the measures/criteria for determining the success/effectiveness of the use of learning technologies in the workplace?
  • What are the factors that influence/impact the success/effectiveness of the use of learning technologies in the workplace?
  • What evidence is there that the use of learning technologies has been more successful/effective than traditional/ face-to-face learning in the workplace?

A report on the research is available from the Learning Light website together with a database of the studies used in the report.

Women in Work and Learning

Today is international Women’s Day; the annual occurrence that seeks to revel in how far women have come, and address how far they have left to go in the battle for gender equality. By celebrating what women have achieved, whilst highlighting the continuing inequalities they face, today plays a vital role in shedding light on women, their opinions and their experiences in life. We want to contribute to this insight and explore how you could make work place learning more effective by tapping in to the behaviours and ambitions of women in your company.
