Abstract

E-learning is a relatively new concept. It has been developed to describe the convergence of a whole range of learning tools, which use technology as their basis for delivery. E-learning is using technology to assist in delivering learning experiences to learners. It is also a concept which is built around the philosophy of “anytime and anywhere” learning meaning that learners can access learning materials when and as required, no matter where they happen to be located in the world or, indeed, off world. E-learning gives both strategic and competitive advantage to organisations. Business organisations recognised knowledge and people are critical resources that should be treated as treasures. In the information ages the speed of introducing new products, and services, requires employees to learn and consolidate new information quickly and effectively. This paper discusses the factors that impact the organisational e-learning and advocates the strategic context. We also conducted questionnaire survey to show the factors that impact organisational e-learning. The question posed by this paper is that: ‘Can organisation develop an e-learning strategy that encompasses the impacts of organisational strategic context?’
