Abstract

The development of e‐learning by government through policy, funding allocations, research‐based collaborative projects and alliances has increased recently in both developed and under‐developed nations. The paper notes that government, industry and corporate users are increasingly focusing on standardisation issues and the scalability of technology platforms to meet demand. This paper assesses the challenges for further development that e‐learning faces in the coming years, including: access to appropriate technology, scalability, measurement, and changed governance structures.
