Abstract

In the current age of technology which is supported by flexible (hand-held) devices like iPad, the use of learning platforms such as MOODLE can support virtual learning through synchronization with available technologies like effective [fibre-optic] network system. In addition to it being a good platform for academic learning, its use is now becoming widespread in the corporate environment, more so for Compliance Training in areas like banking and insurance sectors. In developing countries like Sierra Leone where resources are limited, effective corporate governance can be addressed by ensuring people are conversant with their organisational compliance policies through access to MOODLE Managed Learning Environment [MLE]. There is a myth concerning MOODLE’S confined use in the academic environment, but this work will explore its relevance in an environment not so common in the working practices of staff professional engagement and learning in the corporate environment. Discussion is focused in the financial sector where demand on work is preventing employees and even those charged with governance from engaging themselves in activities supposedly meant to enhance their understanding of professional working practices, for example, addressing risks and compliance measures.
