The actual trend of Industry 4.0 affects different divisions of a company, amongst others HRM and IT. The knowledge of ERP users and their training are gaining importance. eLearning should support trainings and save costs. The following paper starts under the assumption of missing acceptance and lack of success of currently available eLearning tools. This will be checked with the help of a survey which deals with ERP systems in order to gain experience about those tools and their success. Especially thereby identified weaknesses are used to develop a more advanced eLearning-Model to improve efficiency and acceptance. A small interface, reusing existing eLearning-objects and providing materials in the right manner is presented to ERP providers, consulting companies and staff developers in companies using ERP systems.
