I define e-Learning as the delivery of learning, training or an educational program which is intended to develop skills by use of any electronic means. ELearning involves the use of a computer or some kind of digital device such as a mobile phone in some way to provide training by an educational institution or corporate setting. ELearning methods use many trendy technologies in which lessons are given to improve skills within a learning community.
How is eLearning evolving in meaning?
+ELearning is more than putting course content on the web, it is about using technology and the Internet to support the learning process. This includes instruction, content, collaboration and assessment.
+ELearning can and should be integrated with other forms of learning such as classroom training, collaboration and using real-life scenarios.
+ELearning should support all processes associated with learning including the management, administration and tracking of trends to improve learning functions. After all, e-learning is constantly changing.
