Abstract or Summary

In New Zealand a number of e-learning-focused research activities have been undertaken to provide a more comprehensive context and framework to inform strategic investment and decision-making around e-learning for tertiary education organisations. One major identified need, supported by a Ministry of Education gap analysis, was to determine the answer to the question of ‘how effective has e-learning been in a vocational/workplace context both in terms of meeting learner/business needs and in increasing organisational productivity’. The aim of the e-Learning activities in New Zealand Industry Training Organisations project was to produce a series of research reviews culminating in a final research report, which would increase awareness in the ITO sector of the development and delivery of effective, cost-efficient and educationally sound work-based and work-placed e-learning. This paper presents the findings of the third phase of that research project.
