Considerations when designing or specifying an on‑line learning environment.
For many organisations, the provision of training to staff and customer represents a significant cost. As the processing power and network bandwidth available to desktop PCs increases, the performance and features of on‑line learning systems have improved to the point where the delivery of training via a computer has become a viable option.
While on‑line learning is not an appropriate solution for all training needs, it does provide an effective training delivery mechanism in the right circumstances.
This article discusses some of the issues involved in creating an on‑line learning environment, viewed from the perspective of the different interest groups involved. The information and concepts shown here are not definitive; you should carefully consider your own specific requirements before implementing any computer system.
