ZERBINI, Thaís; ABBAD, Gardênia  and  MOURAO, Luciana. Effectiveness evaluation of distance learning, via intranet: the case of Bank of Brazil. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.2, pp. 155-170. ISSN 1984-6657.

The aim of this research was to test an evaluation model of distance learning training mediated by intranet, in a corporate environment, which was accomplished in two steps. The first was to construct and check the evidence of validity of the instrument "Work Training Impact in Depth." The second identified predictors of Work Training Impact in depth and breadth. The course "Individual Credit," offered by Bank of Brazil for its employees, was evaluated. Four questionnaires - Learning Strategies, Support for Implementation of Training, Work Training Impact (depth and breadth) - were sent to 541 employees. Principal component analysis, factor analysis, and internal consistency analysis were run, as well as standard and stepwise multiple regression. The results indicate that the scale contains 14 items (α = 0.96, factor loadings between 0.55 and 0.91) and that the participant who perceived greater support for the implementation of training, and used learning strategies more frequently, also reported a higher incidence of Work Training Impact, in depth and breadth. However, the profile of respondents should be compared with the trained population profile in order to evaluate the limits and possibilities of generalization of the findings.
