Occupational training -- Computer-assisted instruction;
The purpose of this literature review is to provide an overview of significant literature published on the topic of the benefits of increased technology use for training as an integral component of business strategy. After satisfying initial research requirements set forth by the researcher, 34 peer-reviewed articles published after 2001 were purposefully selected based upon relevancy to the research topic and critically analyzed to identify consistencies, similarities, and differences, in an attempt to explain the motives behind increased investments in technology for training. Three major trends are identified: Globalization Challenges and Benefits for Training Programs Organizational Training and Performance Assessment. A significant finding indicates that technology is being used by organizational training programs to support their global vision. Additional research is needed to investigate ways that e-Learning can be linked to measurable performance and to provide evidence as to how training programs affect employees.
