Competencies in Organizational E-Learning: Concepts and Tools provides a comprehensive view of the way competencies can be used to drive organizational e-learning, including the main conceptual elements, competency gap analysis, advanced related computing topics, the application of semantic Web technologies, and the integration of competencies with current e-learning standards. Competencies in Organizational E-Learning: Concepts and Tools is the first book to address competencies as a key observable workplace behavior, driving learning and knowledge dissemination processes inside organizations. This book works as a guide for implementing or improving competency-based approaches to e-learning.
