ABSTRACT
The challenge of managing modern organizations is to achieve and sustain the mix between people, technology, knowledge and behavior that organization possesses. In these circumstances e-learning represent an important channel for transferring knowledge in modern society and influences on operating of all organizations. Creation and implementation of e-learning in organizations is dependent upon a set of different interrelated internal and external factors. Recently, researchers and practitioners focus their intention also on behavioral viewpoint of e-learning and in this frame expose the importance of values, culture, ethics and norms (VCEN). We focused our discussion on culture and economic culture as less developed fields of e-learning. Culture tends to crucially influence development and application of knowledge, skills, talents and other resources in organizations. In the current very competitive and increasingly global economy success of e-learning activities are interdependent with innovative culture. E-learning as a special type of knowledge management is also importantly related with culture in general, and especially with economic culture as a base for understanding the efficiently creation and implementation of e-learning in organizations. The contribution discusses two theses: (1) that culture importantly influence the creation and implementation of e-learning in organizations; and (2) that e-learning inside an organization is depending on the prevailing economic culture in the organizational environment.
