eLearning Attitudes in Botswana’s Private Sector

Abstract : The study investigated eLearning attitudes in Botswana’s private sector. Selected companies in Gaborone, (Botswana) served as the unit of analysis. The study used a multi-pronged approach for data collection. The results show positive attitudes towards eLearning. However, current organizational policy did not accommodate training via eLearning. The results also suggest that eLearning counters threat of national and international private seizure of employee markets. All respondents agreed that integrating eLearning technologies in training would prepared better employees and increase access to education in a cost effective way. Respondents further alleged that eLearning created and supported new research opportunities, and that organizations required intellectual property rights policy. Most respondents reported readiness to implement eLearning, and suggested that eLearning would alleviate increasing administrative and training pressures. Finally, results show that eLearning would increase the success rate and quality of training, and that eLearning was not just a fad that would disappear shortly.
