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.

Case Study: Best Learning Technologies Project 2018 (UK commercial Sector)

In 2018, 93% of learning practitioners wanted to increase employee engagement with learning, but only 27% were successful. With less than a third meeting this goal, it is important to explore how an exemplar organisation turned their learning strategy on its head to achieve just that.
