This chapter examines the development of online learning systems, how they incorporate reusable learning modules and how various forms of assessment are employed to improve the quality of the learning outcomes. Corporations are adopting online learning, or e-learning, at a dramatic rate, partly driven by a desire for cost reduction and partly to ensure that all staff have the required skills and ability to their jobs. Organizations are increasingly linking the systems for delivery of this learning into human resource management systems.
