The primary data for the current study was collected through a structured questionnaire which had questions relating to gender, management level and the expectations were captured on a 7 point Likert scale. The respondents belonged to entry level and mid-level organizations of IT and telecom industry where virtual learning is very popular. The sample size was 150. Factor analysis and t-test were conducted using SPSS software. The results of actor analysis indicated that employees preferred interactive and blended learning.
