These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in IJLC, but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

  • Role of training and development practices in implementing change   Order a copy of this article
    by Shweta Maheshwari, Veena Vohra 
    Abstract: Implementing change effectively is critically significant given the changing organisational environment and high failure rate of change implementation. Training and development practices enable employee skill development facilitating effective change implementation. However, there is lack of studies describing role played by these practices in implementing change. The purpose of this study is to explore the role of training and development practices in implementing change thereby identifying factors that make these practices effective. Given the contextual nature of these practices, it is deemed essential to undertake study embedded in the context of large scale/transformational change. Multiple case study design is adopted to compare and contrast these practices across different organizational context. Findings suggested relationships and patterns leading to emergence of seven propositions, four themes and ten categories that describe the role of training and development practices in implementing change; explained under four themes; purpose, design, process and effectiveness.
    Keywords: Learning and Development; Training and Development; Organizational Change; Manufacturing Sector; Role of training and development.

  • Modified UTAUT2 Model for M-Learning among Students in India   Order a copy of this article
    by Jayendra Bharati Venkataraman, R. Srikanth 
    Abstract: Ubiquitous technologies have a great potential to enrich students' academic experience. Students are more interested in using interactive learning techniques apart from the traditional learning techniques. Several research studies for m-learning has been done in the USA, UK concentrating on students undergoing a graduation degree, especially subjects like engineering, arts, maths, science, etc. Hence the need has arisen to conduct a separate research on m-learning in the Indian context. This study proposes a modified UTAUT2 (unified theory of acceptance and use of technology) model with nine core independent determinants predicting the tenth dependent variables construct. Data analysis has been done using both the descriptive (frequency counts, percentages, and means) and inferential statistics (correlation analysis, multiple linear regression analysis and principal component analysis). This study aims to develop a new model that encompasses the factors affecting the utilisation of ubiquitous technology among students in institutes of higher education, particularly in India.
    Keywords: UTAUT2; mobile learning; ubiquitous technology;PCA; multiple linear regression analysis; factor analysis.
