British Airways PLC (BA) has introduced a new learning management system (LMS) to support the online and classroom-based IT and business training of 48,000 BA staff worldwide. The move follows a development partnership between computer companies Thomson NETg and Oracle Corp. to ensure interoperability between the latter's iLearning LMS and NETg's Open Learning package of IT, desktop, business and professional development courses. BA has been using NETg's IT and business e-learning courses since 2001.
