Abstract

Learning and instruction exist beyond secondary and post-secondary education. In business and industry, corporate universities and learning institutes are replacing the traditional human resource-based training departments. Learning communities such as Motorola University or SAS Institute Boot Camp are being studied and replicated throughout the world as the importance of knowledge as a resource and knowledge management as a strategic goal become indicators of a system’s economic health (Newman & Smith, 1999). e-Learning, CBT, and WBT can also replace costly training systems and provide a wider dissemination of consistent and up-to-date knowledge and skills throughout an organization without huge impacts on the bottom line (Hyland, 2000).
