Also called online learning or distance learning, e-Learning describes a range of technology-enabled learning scenarios. In most cases, e-Learning refers to personal development, industrial, or academic education delivered online.
One way to think about eLearning is an interactive course material remotely consumed. Interactivity includes real-time interaction with an instructor or fellow learners, online quizzes and tests, and/or online exercises. Another characteristic of eLearning is its anytime/anywhere dimension wherein courses are consumed anywhere a student accesses the Internet.
In recent years, e-Learning has become universally available through platforms like Udemy and LinkedIn Learning as well as numerous open-sourced academic resources (a list of free courses is available here)
e-Learning opens exciting possibilities for global learning where Internet access is available as is disrupts learning relationships and redefines the geography for the pursuit of knowledge.
