dc.description.abstract Nineteen small business owners/managers in the Halifax Regional Municipality were interviewed regarding their workplace learning. Of particular interest was their e-learning activity. Results of this study indicate that 19 firms (100%) had access to a computer and that 18 firms (95%) access to the Internet. However, only 16 owners of the 19 firms (84%) used the computer and 15 of the 19 owners (79%) used the Internet. The computer was used by owners for a variety of things, mostly business related, for example, accounting. However, only three described specific use of the computer for learning, for example, through CDs. Internet use was mainly for broad-brush information access, a learning outcome however, only two people identified specific e-learning activities. Several owners discussed opposition to e-learning. Results are discussed and future research directions are identified. en_CA
