There are few statistics about electronic learning usage, but the numbers that do exist have tended to be dismal. Indeed, according to a Corporate University Xchange study of 4,148 online learners, electronic learning dropout rates typically stand at about 70 per cent, compared with an average of 15 per cent for classroom training. Great Britain National Health Services' electronic tutor training program commissioned by the National Health Service Information Authority (NHSIA) has achieved a completion rate of 93.8 per cent, and average learner satisfaction ratings of 5.95 out of six. More detailed statistics and feedback from individual NHSIA delegates can be made available on request, together with photographs of the individuals quoted.
