Practical implications – The paper explains how e‐learning can be cheaper and, in some cases, more effective than classroom‐based learning. Social implications – The paper highlights how e‐learning, combined with a learning‐management system, enables an employer to demonstrate that it is complying with all the law's health and safety requirements.
