Abstract

Currently Intel Ireland has several WBT' and ILT' courses dealing with office ergonomics. Concern has been raised that new employees are not getting timely exposure to key information due to the large number of WBT and ILT they are required to complete. It has been proposed that an information pack should be provided upon starting in their new work area. My proposal is to create an e-learning artefact which will present the same material, within the same time frame, using various multimedia technologies. Upon completion learners should demonstrate a deeper understanding and overall learning than learners who were provided with information packs only. Implementation will follow a standard approach of analysis, design, testing/evaluation and final delivery. This will be an iterative process culminating in equal numbers of learners completing one of the two methods of delivery. The evaluation process will encompass Level 1 and 2 of Kirkpatrick's model. The L2 Evaluation will enable a direct comparison between both groups knowledge transfer and indicate which method is most effective.
