This document is the product of a study that was conducted to identify the target audience of Canada's Office of Learning Technologies (OLT), determine which stakeholders should be involved in developing the OLT's action program; and recommend specific actions for the OLT to take. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the study methodology, which entailed the following activities: collecting qualitative and quantitative data on adult training within and outside the workplace; developing a profile of Quebec's major stakeholders in information technology (IT) and learning media and determining their "georeferential" positioning; developing approximately 40 fact sheets on companies and organizations active in new learning technologies and media in Quebec; interviewing 6 specific stakeholders in IT and learning media; examining selected recent studies and Internet sites devoted to learning technologies; and developing five reference tables detailing the interrelationships between various learning technologies. Chapters 2 and 3 detail the study findings. Appendixes constituting approximately 90% of the document contain the following: study methodology; fact sheets; interview reports; reference tables; excerpts from four published studies; "Developing an Educational CD-ROM for Quebec: Hang on! Selling to Quebec Schools: Nothing Is Less Easy" (Marie-Andree Amiot); and "Observatory on Multimedia Training" (Pierre-Julien Guay). English and French versions of the report are included. (MN)
