Critical Sucess Factors when Establishing an E-Learning Strategy in a Corporate Learning Environment
AbstractGiven today's increasingly competitive environment, any technique of training that does not contribute to organisation effectiveness and efficiency should be discarded. This paper focuses on the factors that an organisation should consider when establishing an e-learning strategy. The absence of an e-learning strategy in most organisations could be attributed to e-learning project teams not being competent at formulating such a strategy and not being aware of the factors that need to be considered when engaging in such a formulation. This study attempts to address this problem by reflecting on some of these factors, bearing in mind that the consideration of these factors should be contextualised to a specific organisation. It builds on the work of some South African researchers such as Rabelani Dagada, Antoinette van der Merwe and the ASTD Global Network South Africa.
