Special Session on E-Learning in the Workplace: Opportunities and Obstacles


Mourad Mansour
Assistant Professor of Management
King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals
Dhahran, Saudi Arabia

Session Description:

E-learning is providing employers with the opportunity to train and develop their employees while they are available in the workplace, at a low cost and with the flexibility of time and programs. Employees are exempted from taking regular classes or to travel away from their workplace. The web-based method of learning is a good solution for companies to develop the knowledge and skills of their workforce, especially if they are distributed worldwide. 

This track invites research papers and studies regarding the integration of this training method in the companies' cultures, the opportunities and obstacles associated with adopting such new learning method, the different considerations need to be taken before and after adopting E-learning in the workplace, etc. 

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and contribution. It is IBIMA policy to send complete papers to two reviewers for full blind peer review and to send a summary of review back to the author(s) .  Short papers/abstracts will be reviewed by reviewer and/or the editor.  All review comments and suggestions should be addressed in the final submission. Submitted Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

Conference proceedings will be published as an e-book on a CD (ISBN: 978-0-9821489-0-7) and will be published on the "Communications of the IBIMA" Journal
