Increasing learning and performance is at the heart of Virtual HRD and organizations must leverage contemporary technologies to strategically enable informal adult learning.
By examining sophisticated technologies such as computer simulations, Internets, Intranets and robust virtual environments (RVEs), Bennett (2011) explored the concept of informal adult learning and presented her initial thoughts on strategies to assess this type of learning.
