Computer-based training is now widely recognised as a viable approach for education in institutions of higher learning, as evidenced by the number of institutions that offer courses (Van der Westhuizen, 1999:1). Corporate South Africa has embarked on a similar course of action. The researcher used a qualitative research design in this study, with participation from learning facilitators, learners and managers in 15 South African organisations. Data was collected by way of individual interviews, focus group interviews, observations and the analysis of legislative documentation. On the basis of a study involving a number of South African organisations, some requirements were found relevant for the successful implementation of a computer-based training strategy. The performance of the organisations selected for the study was measured against requirements for the successful implementation of computer-based training. Although the integration of online learning in the corporate training environment is still in its early stages, corporate South Africa is very advanced in certain aspects of computer-based training implementation.
