Barriers to Application of E-Learning in Training Activities of SMEs
Anderson, Randy J.; Wielicki, Tomasz; Anderson, Lydia E.
International Journal on E-Learning, v9 n2 p159-167 Apr 2010
This paper reports on the on-going study of Small and Mid-Size Enterprises (SMEs) in the Central California concerning their use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). This research project analyzed data from a sample of 161 SMEs. Specifically, this part of the study is investigating the major barriers to applications of e-learning tools and techniques as applied in the employees' training activities. One objective is to determine if a particular SME must indeed obtain a certain level of proficiency in applying ICT before it is likely to use e-learning and e-training as a vital format of its educational and training activities. (Contains 3 figures and 3 tables.)
