The aim of this section is to establish from various literature, the main points of best practice in implementing e-learning into a large organisation, in particular recent research on the attitudes of the implementation of effective e-learning.

As a result of the explosive growth in this sector e-Learning development skills are now in incredibly short supply. [...]

[...] First, there is the cost of bringing in and hosting training specialists, an expensive gamble for programs of unsure benefit. Second, there is a savings of hard-copied training materials. With e-learning, students can follow and fill out information online and print it at their own discretion. Again, for a program that may or may not catch on with a company, there is little to no waste cost, with unused and ineffective textbooks, handouts and other material taking up space in an office.
