E-Learning Teams and Their Adult Learning Efforts in Corporate Settings: A Cross Analysis of Four Case Studies
Stewart, Barbara; Waight, Consuelo
International Journal on E-Learning, v7 n2 p293-309 Apr 2008
Four cases relating to the efforts of e-learning teams in valuing adult learners in their e-learning solutions were examined to better understand how e-learning teams value their adult learners within corporate settings. Two questions guided the analysis of the cases, they are: (1) What is the nature of the e-learning solutions in these cases? (2) What strategies did the e-learning teams use to value adult learners? The nature of the e-learning solutions in these cases resulted in descriptions about e-learning context, e-learning format, types, and numbers of courses. The strategies that e-learning teams used to value adult learners related to front-end analysis, content selection, content sequence, and presentation, interactions, standards, assessments, locations, and transfer. The analysis illustrated that e-learning teams and their efforts to value adult learners in their e-learning solutions are influenced by factors such as team size, team talent, company size, and technology. The results of the cross-case analysis offer a synthesis that e-learning teams can use for benchmarking and evaluation. (Contains 3 tables.)
