#18 Understanding Philippine Organizations’ Online Learning Culture

The study describes the Philippine organizations’ online learning culture and experience of engaging in online learning. Interview and survey data from 12 project sponsors or administrators showed that organizations in the Philippines decided to go online due to business imperative, cost efficiency, and the convenience and practicality of using it. Respondents see the importance of preparing the organization—its internal capabilities and its stakeholders; and the learner—his needs, concerns, and motivations, for learning online. The 130 online learner-survey respondents expressed the need to be guided and supported to enable them to better manage work, learning, and family time. The study also reveals a number of challenges facing administrators of e-learning and online learners.
