TELELEARNING SOLUTIONS IN THE CORPORATE SECTOR

Chairperson:
Leopold Reif
, Deutsche Telekom, Germany

Most large corporations are increasingly turning to telematics supported learning solutions. For some it is a natural development of their training process and comes as a result of an increasing convergence between information management and in-company training. For others, this represents an opportunity to market courseware and services developed for specific target audiences in the broader in-company training marketplace. In all cases such developments are a practical manifestation of the demand for 'just-in-time' learning solutions to meet the needs of the workforce. During these sessions, experts from leading organizations will present case-studies and describe their experience in the field of Telelearning.
