Abstract

Successful knowledge transfer or diffusion of eLearning practices goes beyond precursor incentives and anticipated rewards. It also involves facilitating learning and cultural attributes, as well as wider enabling capabilities in an organisation. How some of these attributes and capabilities play out in an educational environment, in the context of web enabled technology in support of learning and teaching, is the focus of this paper. This paper uses an organizational learning model to understand the diffusion of learning after initial design and development. The paper is based on a case study of eight course level eLearning projects in a university based in Hong Kong. The study illustrates a number of challenges for the wider uptake of the initial idea from the individual course to the programme and wider institution.
