Abstract

Although e-Learning efforts are considered to be a significant corporate investment, many surveys indicate high drop-out rates or failures (Hill, 2000). In this study we try to identify some critical issues that organizations should consider before adopting an e-Learning solution. Those issues are presented in the literature under the "umbrella" of e-Learning readiness in the workplace, and their occurrence seems to be critical for every organization who wants to start or continue an e-Learning journey. The proposed issues to consider are business environment, technology, content, training procedure, culture, human resources and financial considerations.
