Will employer elearning reseach have the answers?

It seems as though every newsfeed or mailing list that I subscribe to is pointing to the new employer e-learning research being undertaken by the Skills for Business Network. (See Seb Schmoller's posting.)

"The Skills for Business Network work based e-learning project (based at e-skills UK) is conducting a major study to understand why UK employers are currently investing in e-learning and the difference it is making to their business and staff. This will give participating employers a unique insight into workforce preferences and what learners really think. The study investigates why organisations are investing in e-learning...and what their successes and challenges have been."

UK employers can take part in an anonymous, online survey. The proposals for Stage 2 will perhaps yield more interesting results - as this will involve employers in undertaking a 'simple' analysis of their employees' perceptions of e-learning. This reflects the growing interest within the Tertiary education sector, with various publicly funded studies focusing on the 'learner experience'.
