Abstract [en]

In order to manage e-learning initiatives, organizations and educational institutions must understand benefi ts and limitations of different e-learning techniques and methods. This can help managers to evaluate their organization for readiness to implement e-learning and give them support when planning future e-learning initiatives. An important task for research is to support the management of e-learning by revealing the impact of different factors on e-learning effectiveness. Commonly, two basic types of e-learning are compared, i.e. asynchronous and synchronous e-learning. Until now, e-learning initiatives have mainly relied on asynchronous means for teaching and learning (Romiszowski & Mason, 2004; Hrastinski & Keller, 2007). However, recent improvement in technology and increasing bandwidth have led to the increasing popularity of synchronous e-learning (Kinshuk & Chen, 2006).
