A Study of E-learning Training System for Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corporation
Corporate managers are constantly looking for more cost-effective ways to deliver training to their employees. E-learning is less expensive than traditional classroom instruction. In addition, many expenses-booking training facilities, travel costs for employees, plus employee time away from the job- are greatly reduced. Distance learning has existed for a long time. When computers became available, educators were tempted by this new means to deliver education at a distance. Today, what was once an obscure sidebar to education has become big business. This is what people now are talking about e-learning. The value of the computer may seem to be its ability to deliver information anytime and anywhere, but its value in education is potentially much more important. E-learning is fueling efforts to integrate distributed learning systems in organization. The purpose of this study is to examine the some factors that determine intention to adopt e-learning in Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corporation. The studied system enables online or web-based learning, which has grown in popularity in the new millennium as an innovative and useful enterprising training tool. This paper takes a social, organizational, and technical approach in its investigation to identify the factors that affect intention to adopt e-learning. Regression Analysis was used to assess the relationships in the constructs. The paper presents some findings on e-learning adoption intention determinants in order to giving some suggestions to KRTC for future implementing e-learning training system.
