- The study aims to investigate the feasibility of e-learning application as an alternative way to conduct continuing education (CE) for New Generation Migrate Workers (NGMW) on the context of western China. A enterprise-based cross-sectional survey was conducted with a randomly selected sample of 183 NGMWs in Xi`an city, Shaanxi Province. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data. Results reveals that NGMWs who participated in e-learning education experiences have divergences in groups Reasons for adopting e-learning included achieving life learning, fulfilling personal interests, job needs, information diversity, etc. Objects who rejected e-learning as their way of CE include poor computer competence, lack of software condition, heavy work load, conflict with personal preference, heavy economic burden, lack of motivation, and low self-control. Reasons were analyzed eventually to provide directions for decreasing barriers for developing e-learning for NGMWs in western China..
