Abstract

Technology has altered the way we learn and work. This study hopes to help business leaders and corporations recognize the crucial role of these societal-changing technologies that link people to information in the digital age. This study explored the effect of technology on organizational learning from the perspective of connectivism. Practices of connectivism studied include social software technologies and knowledge management practices. Quantitative survey question-naires were sent to 301 companies in the computer industry across Taiwan, resulting in 80 valid responses. Hierarchical regression was used to test study hypotheses. Hypotheses on the direct effects among innovative corporate culture, practices of connectivism and organizational learning were supported. Additionally, companies that were younger or in more remote locations were found to have higher motivation to innovate, learn and adopt new technologies formally.
