Purpose – This paper aims to details how e‐learning is being used to impart training at two UK media companies. Design/methodology/approach – The paper explains the reasons for the two sets of training, the form they took and the results they have achieved. Findings – The paper describes how e‐learning has helped to train casual and geographically dispersed workers in health and safety matters at Global Radio, and how e‐learning is being used to impart information‐technology and “soft” skills at Trinity Mirror. 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. Originality/value – The paper concentrates on the strengths of e‐learning but fails to mention some of the drawbacks.
