ABSTRACT
The rise of e-learning raises fears that staff are being forced to train outside working hours. As corporate life becomes ever more pressurised, employees are dealing with heavier workloads. There are signs that some managers are using e-learning to move training outside of normal working hours. According to a research, there are no rules about where and when e-learning takes place. Courses are shorter and more modular in response to the changing nature of business, and e-learning has helped to facilitate this. INSET: Case study.
