Abstract

Corporations are finding e-learning as a valuable delivery method for training as it allows employees to take courses at a time that fits their schedules, and the courseware is scalable. This paper is a study of various functional levels of e-learning training delivered by an international food and beverage company operating at various locations in Mainland China. Though much of their training is delivered in face-to-face classrooms, a growing number of courses are posted in the company’s learning management system and delivered through e-learning. Some locations have a higher success rate in terms of numbers and percentages of completed courses. The completion rate among individual users follows a similar trail. Common factors for persistence at e-learning such as work environment and favorite courses, became evident.
