What is E-LeaRNing?

E-learning stands for electronic learning and is an umbrella term for computer instruction on-line. It can be a very effective tool in disseminating information as well as providing education. Participating in e-learning allows you to experience new methods and approaches in education that take full advantage of evolving technology.

E-learning can originate from a CD-ROM, the Intranet in your workplace or the Internet. It can include a variety of options such as text, video, audio, animation and virtual. It is self-paced, hands-on learning, and can be a rich learning experience surpassing the level of education experienced in an in-service or workshop setting. (Stockley, 2007)
