ABSTRACT
Airport operator BAA PLC is rolling out computer-based training to help its 10,000 staff migrate from Windows 98 to XP, after a successful pilot. Although some staff said they would prefer instructor-led training, most understood the advantages of using e-learning. The one-hour course, created by Spring IT Training, introduces users to the basic differences between the two operating systems. It is going to be rolled out to all BAA's airports in Great Britain in the next year, accompanying the operating system migration.
