  1. Some general WBT resources

    Not sure about specific info about WBT for bankers, but can offer some general resources.

    Links is a large site, but you can search conference resources or newsletter for some specific topics).

    As for the books, I would recommend
    Driscoll, M. (1998). Web-Based Training: tactics and techniques for designing adult learning. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass.
    Duffy, K. (1997). Training on the Web: A Guide for Instructors and Designers. Lake Helen, Florida: Lake Helen Publishing.
    Hall, B. (1997). Web-based Training Cookbook. New York: John Willey

    I’m interested in WBT as well, so will be glad to start a discussion.

  2. books on WBT
    I am also at the beginning stages of a theses on WBT and have found a book by Colin Steed, called ‘Web-based Training’a very useful introduction to the subject. Its published by Gower. I’d be very interested to hear more about your proposed area of research!

  3. Web Based Training
    A very good book entitled Distance Training could be very useful to your research. It is authored by Schreiber and Berge and published by Jossey-Bass. It has been useful to me in providing information in the form of case studies relating to the implemetation of distance learning into industry rather than academic instituitions.

  4. WBT
    I thank to all who suggest any resource that will be beneficial for my study and I also hope to reach those books soon.
    I would be very glad to hear about the overall design of Ms.Brenda Mead’s thesis on WBT. The reason is that I have difficulty in finding a sufficient amount of sample in Turkey because of it’s rarity and therefore I choose qualitative resarch desing, interviewing to collect data. By the way I could mention that right now I’m doing the literature review and will start to collect data in May.
    I mostly search through EBSCOHOST ( but required password, so as far as I know accessable through libraries or universities. I also use ERIC (
    “Building a WB Education System” by Colin McCormack & David Jones might also be useful for your study.
    We can also exchange some articles via mail.
