E-learning is one of the most promising sectors within the Information and Communication Technologies industry and growth forecasts are more than optimistic.

This paper introduces a research project about SMEs in Italy aimed at understanding SMEs’ decision processes in the field of e-learning and at identifying enablers and obstacles to e-learning diffusion.
