Abstract

An organisation's eLearning culture is influenced by the traditional training culture and perceived relevance of eLearning opportunities. For organisations with hierarchical and authoritarian management and training structures, eLearning provides opportunities for standardising content, delivery and course management while challenging traditional teacher-student relationships. This research-based case study of the Australian Army provides the perspectives of instructors implementing centrally developed, customised eLearning packages within an authoritarian training culture. Exploring instructors' perspectives of eLearning contributed to an understanding of the importance of aligning their beliefs, the organisational culture and learners' needs for effective eLearning implementation.
