ABSTRACT
The author in this article wonders as how to maximize investment in e-learning to get added value over and above European Computer Driving Licence implementation. If all network and connectivity issues are resolved within the next year or so, it is to decide what other types of training would benefit from desktop delivery. Subjects such as health and safety, emergency procedures and data protection are covered face-to-face during an employee's induction. These topics are subsequently reviewed annually and this can take up valuable classroom resources. Technologies such as learning objects and video streaming could be used to great effect to communicate this type of information at the desktop, particularly for annual updates, reviews and assessments. The latest figures from IT Skills Research suggests that only 11 per cent of organizations use e-learning.
