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.

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.

Towards Maturity Learning Health Check season extended to Monday 16 September. Early 2019 results highlight that only 7% of L&D leaders report that their organisation encourages and provides time for reflection*

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.
