This paper explores the use of e-learning technologies for organisational learning within a commercial environment. A model has been developed to represent those factors that determine organisational learning. This model has been embedded within a case study based on the use of an e-learning program that was developed in order to enhance employees' knowledge and endorse corporate values within a Norwegian company. The results of the study reflect the high performance of the e-learning program. They also highlight critical issues concerning the successful implementation of e-learning technologies to achieve the knowledge sharing that is required for organisational learning.
