e-learning, e-adoption, e-readiness, measuring e-readiness


e-Learning is a good opportunity for companies to up-skill their employees and to meet the demands of lifelong learning but the implementation of it needs to be well prepared and managed because it takes often high investment costs both on the financial and the organisational side. That is why it is important for a company to know if it is e-learning ready. E-readiness and e-learning readiness are already well covered in literature and several theoretical models are suggested. We developed an e-learning readiness measurement instrument based on these models. We used it as a survey instrument to conclude about the e-learning readiness of Flemish hospitals.
