In this contribution the history of technology enhanced learning is examined, starting with early learning machines and ending with new concepts for workplace learning solutions. One difference between traditional e-Learning solutions and workplace integrated learning is that in the first case knowledge workers are sent to the ldquolearningrdquo while in the second case the ldquolearningrdquo is brought to the knowledge workers working environment. This allows workplace integrated learning to better cope with the gap between individual demands of a learner and the demands of an organization. Two of our own projects are selected to illustrate the key ideas we have to support workplace-integrated learning. After this illustration it becomes clear that workplace-integrated learning is still at an early stage. Therefore, we identify the main challenges for future research in this area.
