E-learning Training
In this week’s assignment we were asked to examine eLearning and the barriers that come with it. In this assignment I will describe e-learning as a training method, describe the potential barriers of e-learning readiness, provide some examples of what a trainer can do to prepare learners for e-learning and provide some personal e-learning readiness experience from my time at Ashford University.
How many times have we all heard that we live in the age of technology? More often than most I’m sure. Now a days through the use of technology we are able to purchase, educate, communicate and much more from the palm of our hands through the use of technology. It is now becoming the preferred method to do everything. Why wouldn’t a business want to use it for training employees? Today’s businesses experience insufficient training and lack of knowledge sharing that prevents them from achieving their highest potential. The traditional training methods don’t cut it anymore. E-Learning enables learning to be delivered interactively via computer and internet.
Companies are opting for e-learning over more traditional learning due to the increasing mobility of the workforce, the need to save on training cost, greater acceptance of web based training and better interoperability of system (Moran, 2011). E-learning allows businesses to have the right context at the right time and that is something that businesses are looking for right now.
Although there are several perks to e-learning it is also important to make sure that everyone involved is prepared and ready for e-learning. It is can be an enormous undertaking and require significantly more preparation due to its increased scope, higher interdependence and visibility. One way to make sure that an organization is…...

The EOA plays a pivotal role by assisting the commander with policy awareness, training, command climate assessments, complaints processing and overall advisory assistance concerning the prevention of sexual harassment. 7–2.

Publish and post written command policy statements for the prevention of sexual harassment. All statements will be consistent with Army policy. They will include the local command’s commitment to the Army’s policy against sexual harassment and will reaffirm that sexual harassment will not be tolerated. The statement will explain how and where to file complaints and will state that all complainants will be protected from acts or threats of reprisal. Each ACOM/ASCC/DRU, installation, separate unit, agency, and activity down to company, troop or battery level will publish a sexual harassment command policy statement. Units should coordinate these policy statements with the servicing staff judge advocate or legal advisor before publishing them. c.

Philosophy of Adult Learing

...understand why the state is raising their taxes (personal concern). Many adult learners have innate traits associated with theories that concerning learning. The following four philosophies, behaviorist, cognitive, constructive, and humanist, affect the adult learner and my intention is to give some insight to each. My personal learning philosophy however is more closely related to the behaviorist and humanistic philosophies. Behaviorism Behaviorism assumes that a learner is passive and responds to stimulus within the environment. Learners within this theory are probably the passive employee or student whose behavior can be positive or it can be negative and is reinforced as such. The reinforcement is a training mechanism that instills the knowledge on the individual through training, which subsequently evokes a positive or negative behavior. Having been in business for years I am in tune with this method as it has been a process used by many corporations for years since the physiological output is production. Cognitive and Intellectual Development Adult cognitive changes are based on experience and the intensity of such experience. Upon reviewing this philosophy when an experience is less intense the learning experience shows that less was learned. Adult cognitive development is both beneficial to study from an academic standpoint as well as in the workplace, as Farkas (2003) has stated, employers look for the skill levels in workers that allow for getting the job......

...IMPACT DOES TRAINING HAVE ON EMPLOYEE COMMITMENT AND EMPLOYEE TURNOVER? SCOTT BRUM University of Rhode Island Training is of growing importance to companies seeking to gain an advantage among competitors. There is significant debate among professionals and scholars as to the affect that training has on both employee and organizational goals. One school of thought argues that training leads to an increase in turnover while the other states that training is a tool to that can lead to higher levels of employee retention (Colarelli & Montei, 1996; Becker, 1993). Regardless of where one falls within this debate, most professionals agree that employee training is a complex human resource practice that can significantly impact a company’s success. The training industry as a whole has shown significant growth through the years. Statistics indicate that investment in training is continuing to grow as more and more companies realize its importance. In 1995, $7.7 billion was spent on the wages and salaries of in-house company trainers and $2.8 billion was spent on tuition reimbursement (Frazis, Gittleman, Horrigan, Joyce, 1998). The American Society for Training and Development found that in 2004, the average annual training expenditure per employee was $955, which is an increase of $135 per employee from the previous year. The number of formal learning hours per employee also rose from 26 hours in 2003, to 32 hours in 2004 (atsd.com, 2005). As the investment in various training......

...The first thing I would do in the training seminar is a documentary program. This is where employees would learn about each foreign country’s history, culture, institutions, geography, and economics. I would use videotaped and Web-based presentations to help the employees get a visual understanding of each company’s culture. (Kreitner, 2009, p. 107) In doing this, I could focus on each aspect of the business and how it is interpreted in a foreign country. For example, I would have them watch the previous day’s news on the Web so if a client wanted to talk about current news, my sales personnel and executives would know what they are talking about. It is important to know what the current events are. It can be local sports news, the weather, or entertainment new. It is very important to know what is going on. You cannot afford to sound like you don’t know anything about the foreign country you are doing business with. I would also try to get my employees familiar with the other culture through exposure to a series of simulated intercultural incidents, or typical problem situations. (Kreitner, 2009, p. 107) An example would be an incident when you have to answer why people in a certain culture respond a certain way. You could have several answers to choose from and you find pick until you find out the correct answer. When you pick the correct answer, the feedback is extensive, describing similarities and differences between the two cultures. Gradually, the trainee......

E-Learning and the Changing Face of Corporate Training and Development

...E-Learning and the Changing Face of Corporate Training and Development Max Zornada As much as  is critical to a manufacturing supply chain environment, e-learning is critical in a knowledge dependent supply chain environment. Larry Pereira, Motorola Internet technologies and the advent of e-learning applications in many organisations have made a fundamental difference to the way organisations deliver training and development content, activities and experiences to their employees. Some of the organisations at the forefront of deploying e-learning technologies have been global corporations and/or transaction processing intensive organisations, who typically have difficulties assembling their staff for traditional classroom based training activities, either due to logistical difficulties or because of the impact this would have on work flows and business continuity. Such organisations have developed approaches to e-learning and competency development that overcome the logistical problems of conventional training by making innovative use of e-learning. This paper examines the approaches used by several leading global, Australian and Asian organisations, including Cisco Systems, Motorola, Qantas and several others by drawing on a field study conducted by the writer during –. It attempts to identify some key emerging trends and practices in the field, and lessons that can be learnt from the experiences of organisations reviewed, for the successful deployment of e-learning......

...Training and Mentoring Program Ralph Freegen HRM 531: Human Capital Management November 14, 2010 Dr. Glyn Jordan A successful training program requires the organization to accomplish a few things with a training program. An organization must implement a program so that it will be engaging for the learner as well as make sure it is benchmarking the employee. There are a few things that must be addressed before getting into the details of the training program. An organization must come to a consensus on how long the training program will be, the objectives of the program, and how the program will be delivered An organization must also have certain benchmarks in place such as evaluation methods, performance standards, and feedback after the training is completed. Each of the five sales representatives will need training, however they are on different levels for sales knowledge and product knowledge and this needs to be assessed. The ultimate goal of the training will be to inform the sales representatives while increasing revenue for the organization.

...How training and development supports business growth Introduction Tesco is the largest British retailer and is also the world’s third largest grocery retailer with outlets across Europe, USA and Asia. The business began in 1919 with one man, Jack Cohen, selling groceries from a stall in the East End of London. Jack bought surplus stocks of tea from a company called T.E. Stockwell. T.E. Stockwell and Cohen combined their names to brand the tea Cohen originally sold – TESCO tea. In 1929, the first Tesco store opened in north London. Tesco has expanded since then by a combination of acquisition of new stores, retail services and by adapting to the needs of consumers. Tesco has net profits (before tax) of around £3 billion. Tesco’s primary aim is ‘to serve the customer’. Keeping existing customers happy is important, as they are more likely to return. This is more cost effective for the business than acquiring new ones. In the UK Tesco now has over 2,200 stores ranging from the large Extra hypermarket style stores to small Tesco Express high street outlets. Tesco’s original product range of grocery and general merchandise has diversified to include banking, insurance services, electrical goods as well as telephone equipment and airtime. This move towards ‘one stop shopping’ means customers can meet all their purchasing needs from one place. Tesco has also expanded its customer base through its Tesco.com website which attracts one million regular users. As the company has grown...

...Learning and Development Identified Training needs: Some of the training needs we identified based on the case study were as follows: 1. Gender Sensitivity Training 2. Job skill training 3. Safety Training. Some of the methods that might be used to identify training needs are: 1. Surveys 2. Interviews- gender sensitivity training 3. Skill Matrix Gender sensitivity: Identifying the needs: We have used the interview format to identify this. Since the interview will be dealing with a very emotional and sensitive information, the interviewer must be chosen carefully and have good listening skills. All information must be kept confidential, and the interviewee will be assured of this. The interview will be semi-structured. Some questions are: 1. Do you think men and women with equal efficiency can do all kinds of work? 2. Are women paid less as compared to their male counterparts? 3. Do you feel your work is not taken seriously and/or your say is not considered in decisions by male colleagues? (ask a female employee) 4. Have you ever been sexually harassed at the workplace? 5. Do you think women cannot be good bosses? (ask a male employee) 6. Are women given flexibility in work hours?
