E-learning: Which Effects on Socialization in a Work Team?

Ewan Oiry

Abstract

E-learning tools appear to be an attractive way to help HR become a real business partner. The argument the most often developed to support this linkage derives from the fact that E-learning might propose a new way of dispensing training which would be more effective than the classic one. With several case studies carried out in a number of large French Banks, this paper attempts to demonstrate that to be effective this tool requires a strong reflection on the socialization process of learners.
