Kuzic, Joze
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on e-Learning (Prague, Czech Republic, Jul 23-26, 2013)
On-line training is becoming an interesting phenomenon in Australia and has attracted a lot of interest across many industries and businesses (Chan and Ngai, 2007). The research reported here looks at the use of online training in corporations in Australia. It focuses on two aspects of online training, the factors that "warrant" its success as well as on benefits of being involved in online training. This exploratory study into the issues prevalent to organisations in Australia was accomplished through a survey of top 500 Australian companies. The findings from this research shows that a lot of success factors of online training identified in the literature have been identified in the Australian environment as well. These include: financial support, cross-functional team, alignment of the software and organisational standards (Driscoll, 1998); top management support, skilled work force (Talib et al, 2010); just in time training (Chan and Ngai, 2007); and usability and transferability (Wang et al, 2004). Additionally, the findings also confirm the findings from the literature about major benefits of online training. These include: cost effectiveness (Wang et al, 2004); efficiency, competitive advantage, receiving training any time, any place, ability to provide custom tailored solutions (Chan and Ngai, 2007), 24 hours accessibility, flexibility, relearning skills; and improving knowledge and practice of preventive oral health (Talib et al, 2010).
