WHAT IS E-LEARNING?
E-learning applications and processes include Web-based learning, computer-based learning, virtual classroom opportunities and digital collaboration. Content is delivered via the Internet, intranet/extranet, audio or video tape, satellite TV, and CD-ROM. It can be self-paced or instructor-led and includes media in the form of text, image, animation, streaming video and audio.
E-learning comprises all forms of electronically supported learning and teaching. E-learning is essentially the computer and network-enabled transfer of skills and knowledge.

establish this in class, what do you expect
And most importantly is that you are actually creating what the market demands;
Drawbacks for E-learning
Traditional classrooms should be changed to cater for e-learning.
Motivation. E-learning is still crawling over stones and unless the vision is clear to both teachers and learners, we will not be able to use it effectively. I have been approached by experienced teachers with their fears saying that technology is “stupid”. Some have very high expectations and when faced with the limited facilities at school they experience great disappointments.
Privacy. Is learners’ data safe? At one point the Federal Bank of America has been hacked so what makes our data and work safe? Are we such a fortress of security?
