A. Ahmadpour, S.M. Mirdamadi and S. Soltani published a study entitled "Attitude towards On-the-job E-learning: The Case of Agricultural Extension Workers in Iran" in which they analyse the outcomes of a survey conducted to investigate agricultural extension workers' attitudes towards using e-learning for on-the-job training. The successfull adoption of e-learning systems is very dependent on the learners' attitudes and their willigness to use them. Findings show that extension workers' attitude toward e-learning is generally positive. The study provides recommendations to promote the experts' motivation, knowledge and to improve infrastructures.
