E-LEARNING E-learning



We live in an era of rapid change, with rapid technological developments, deregulation and globalization pressures on all corporate sectors. To succeed in today's global economy; we must learn the implications of these changes and respond accordingly. To compete is necessary to assimilate vast amounts of information on new products, market and competition. The basis for making these decisions correctly is a system where each person has information which is relevantly built and properly prepared on the basis of its particular context and interrelated context. (O'Neil, 2006, 100) This is why e-learning is the main hub for the passage from one paradigm to another, while permitting the passage from the conceptual level to its effective implementation in each of the processes of the human resource development. It is also producing at this time, a paradigm shift in the leadership of the learning process, not only in defining the steps and careers within companies but across the training system. This change is, individually, the correlation of changes in organizational structures. (Paris, 2008, 50) No doubt this process has been precipitated by the rapid incorporation of global technologies, have developed forms of communication that transcend time and space dimensions.

Virtual Training, which has a role to play in the reshaping of the structures of creation and consolidation of learning at the workplace, has been possible because of effective electronic learning process. During the last decade, technological advances have transformed the economy based on production in a service-based economy. (Rheinberg, 2005, 90) Until recently, both the corporate value and value creation were defined primarily by physical and financial aspects of electronic learning in HRD. In contrast, the lifetime of knowledge and human skills is shorter than ever, a fact which increases the need in any job title, constantly updated. Discovered that is a competitive weapon, not a cost factor. Today, success increasingly depends on the excellent performance of employees, which in turn demands high-quality training. Improving workforce skills are critical to generate a sustainable competitive advantage. (O'Neil, 2006, 100) However, the gap between the growing demands of the knowledge economy and the actual capacity is deep and should be reduced if companies are to be competitive. It is necessary to make learning a strategic choice, connecting with the business so that in addition to individual experience, is a collective experience to guide the future of the organization.

Electronic learning has changed the way people work, think and learn. Thus, we must provide more knowledge and skills with speed and efficiency. In the era of production "just-in-time" just in time training is essential for success which is only possible with effective e-learning principles. (O'Neil, 2006, 100) While technology will undoubtedly increase the accessibility of the employee to information, this access alone may not be necessary and directly result in higher levels of learning. It is necessary to put new information technologies and communication in the service of the employee, and service of their learning process. The technology will become a means, a value, and ...
