E-learning spreads its European wingsOn 1 Feb 2003 in Personnel Today A third of European workers have experienced some form of e-learning,according to research carried out by the European School of Management andsponsored by training specialists John Matchett Limited (JML). Almost every respondent (460 workers – 81 from the UK and the rest fromacross Europe, although mainly France and Germany) agreed that e-learning willdominate the delivery of learning in the future as people look for interactiveand personalised courses that precisely fit their needs. The survey, The Impact of Age on Learning, found that nearly half of thoseaged between 20 and 29 years and more than 30 per cent of those aged between 30and 39 had some experience of an e-learning programme. Those aged between 40and 49 had the least exposure (21 per cent) but even 22 per cent of those agedover 59 had experienced e-learning. However, it only managed fifth in the listof respondents’ most frequently used methods of learning, with formal trainingcourses proving the most popular, closely followed by ‘asking colleagues’. John Matchett, chairman of JML, said: “This research shows thatalthough e-learning is rapidly establishing itself as an invaluable andcost-effective addition to the trainer’s armoury, suppliers of learningmaterials must be flexible in their approach and have a wide range of learningoptions.” www.jmlnet.com Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. last_img
