During recent years, information technologies have been introduced in the formation of human resources. However, this has been scarcely researched, even less in Mexican organizational environments. The current study aims to fill a bit of this gap by focusing on an online training system in a Mexican company. A convenience sample of approximately 20 students will be used. Students’ affective style and attitude towards e-learning will be measured through an electronic version of PANAS and an adaptation of Mishra and Panda’s E-Learning Attitude Scale, respectively. These will be related to the program’s effectiveness, which will be evaluated through satisfaction and performance, in accordance to Kirkpatrick’s model. Positive, significant correlations between the variables are expected.
