Making the Move to On-Line Learning.
Ullrich, Martha
Change is a reality in today's workforce. With every new invention and growth in technology, businesses are forced to change. One of the changes businesses are making is the adoption of Web-based technology. This has greatly impacted the business of training. One of the biggest challenges the training industry is facing today is making the transition to Web-based and on-line learning. With this change in direction for training and education, the roles of the instructor and the student are also changing. Roles and responsibilities are becoming more ambiguous. This can lead to resistance. It is well documented that individuals and organizations resist change. In search of stability, it is natural for people to attempt to establish and maintain control over their environment. In this paper, the impact of role ambiguity, specifically that of instructor and student, on the change from instructor-led classroom training to on-line learning is explored. Contains 12 references.
