In this tight economy, learning departments of Financial Services firms are looking for creative, cost-effective ways to add value to the business line. Many of them are turning to eLearning for the technical and skill development their professionals need; while others, especially smaller organizations, are reluctant to utilize eLearning due to perceived barriers to adoption. For example, Tagoras research recently released a state of the sector report in which they noted the top barriers to eLearning:
1. Concern that costs would exceed financial return
2. Lack of technology skills of end training users
3. Unavailable staff time required to develop quality eLearning
