E-Training Practices for Professional Organizations is an essential reference for anyone interested in the integration of e-business, e-work and e-learning processes. The book collects, for the first time, the proceedings from the 2003 IFIP eTrain Conference held in Pori, Finland.

The text serves as a multi-disciplinary resource for information on the research, development and applications of all topics related to e-Learning.
