Adoption Of e-learning For Worker In-Service Training In The Nigerian Public Service


Public institutions in Nigeria are domains defined by political bodies and administrative structures in charge of public affairs. These institutions comprise ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) and are responsible for initiating and implementing policies that impact socioeconomic development. Thirty-Six (36) Federating States have their own MDAs and several in-service training strategies. Yearly budget of the Nigerian government includes a capacity development component for public servants.

Constant learning is necessary to ensure that officials saddled with initiating and implementing policies are adequately trained and understand the ever-changing trends in the modern-day global economy. This study investigates the adoption of elearning for worker in- service training in the Nigerian Public Service that focuses on participants’ individual needs and grants access to complete information. The research examines previous literature on the forms of training of public servants.

The study adopts a qualitative research method and the research participants recruited include public servants and policymakers. Participants’ responses guide the research conclusion on the importance of adopting elearning for worker in-service training. The study recommends future research into the availability of technology infrastructure development that is required for practical elearning in-service training for public servants in Nigeria.
