Abstract or Summary

Recent research in the New Zealand tertiary education sector, indicated more information was required to identify the observable trends and drivers of change that were likely to have significant impact on the future of "e-learning" in Industry Training Organisations (ITOs). A three-phase research project was undertaken to ascertain the current status of the use of elearning technologies by New Zealand ITOs. The data reported here, from the second phase, was derived from a multi-part survey of the perceived benefits and barriers to elearning activity in New Zealand ITOs. Key findings include a pan-sector awareness of the benefits of e-learning for increasing flexibility in training, while at the same time seeing costs and lack of technical infrastructure as real barriers to implementation.
