Description

To address global threats such as climate change, E-Learning modules that deal with sustainable management can contribute to change users’ minds and encourage them to address these threats. Thereby, these modules can be the driving force for a transformation towards a more sustainable society. However, studies that examine the benefits and challenges of E-Learning modules for sustainable management are missing. Thus, the main goal of this paper is to identify potentials and challenges of developing, implementing and using these modules. To reach this goal, we conducted a qualitative study by interviewing 23 experts in the E-Learning and sustainability domain. Thereby, we identify three potentials and five impacts of E-Learning modules for sustainable management and show that these modules can encourage users to include sustainability aspects in their decision-making process. Furthermore, we reveal eight challenges that must be considered during the development, implementation and use of these modules.
