E-learning is evolving from a simple web-based tool into a complex managed environment. Built into new e-learning systems is the ability to monitor a learner's course selections and progress. In an era where organizations seek to tempt innovation from knowledge, the impact of tightly supervised e-learning environments becomes a key consideration. Drawing from ideas stemming from agent and social exchange theories, this paper demonstrates that under conditions where organizational relationships exist involving trust and loyalty, monitoring can have a detrimental effect on the utilization of e-learning environments. Conversely, monitoring may proclaim a positive impact on e-learning usage in circumstances where jobs are simple or mundane, and an abstract relationship defines that between the supervisor and supervisee.
