The primary focus of the proposed research study is not on the specifics of the technologies involved in web-based training, although the technology applied is of obvious importance to the training mission. Rather, the primary focus of the proposed study is on the ways in which training may be adapted to benefit from innovations in information technology (IT) and the advantages such adaptation may provide for both organizations and trainees.

From the Paper:

"Training is one of the most critical aspects of a company's operations, yet it is also one of the most problematic. Companies, particularly large organizations, must develop ways to ensure that existing and new employees receive information that they need to perform their jobs at the appropriate time and in an appropriate manner. Timing, however, is critical. The employees should not receive the information too soon or too late. If the former occurs, employees may forget the information, while in the latter event, a strong probability exists that employees will have already learned the material in a less effective manner.
Companies commit a significant portion of their resources to recruiting employees, and additional resources are invested in providing those employees with the tools necessary for them to perform their tasks. The environment of most organizations, however, is a dynamic one, and it is critical that individual employees be kept up to date on developments within their industry and their profession in order to help give the company a competitive edge (Davis, 1996). Companies use training in order to accomplish this outcome."
