Implementing online training using Action Design Research

What is it about?

Using Action Design Research as an approach to add to academic theory in the Information Systems environment, whilst assisting practitioners to solve a real world problem. In this case, changing the compulsory financial system training from classroom to computer, and actually implementing the online courses in the organisation.

Why is it important?

On the one hand, the paper uses a relatively new way of investigating an area of concern in the Information systems field. It gives details of the 7 principles of Action Design Research (a combination of Action Research and Design Science Research) and how they are applied to meet this research's objective. It attempts to illustrate how to achieve academic rigor for research purposes whilst also meeting the need for addressing real world problems in the IS/educational arena.
