Electronic learning or “E-learning” is a general term used to refer to computer-enhanced learning. It can include the use of web-based teaching materials and hypermedia in general, multimedia web sites, discussion boards, e-mail, blogs, wikis, and text chat, computer aided assessment, educational animation, simulations, games, or a combination of different methods being used.
E-learning is interesting, rewarding and educational. Anyone who really wants to learn, will learn, by expanding their knowledge and understanding of subjects by being actively involved in experiencing, investigating, manipulating and using information in a variety of forms. This can include text, symbols, sound, graphics, photographs, shockwave, virtual reality, and video. E-learning provides opportunities for deeper understanding and more productive and independent learning.
