The North American Space Agency (NASA) is using e-learning to teach 1,700 staff at its Ames Research Center in California to use an application for planning, booking, and reporting business travel. Gail James, the training officer at Ames, says online learning meets the organisations needs. The course was developed by Irish e-learning specialist PulseLearning. The e-learning program helps to remove some of this complexity by assessing what the trainee knows, and needs to know, before the training begins.
