Understanding eLearning is simple. eLearning is learning to utilize electronic technologies to access educational curriculum outside of a traditional classroom. In most cases, it refers to a course, program, or degree delivered completely online.
There are many terms used to describe learning that is delivered online, via the internet, ranging from Distance Education to computerized electronic learning, online learning, internet learning, and many others. We define eLearning as courses that are specifically delivered via the internet to somewhere other than the classroom where the professor is teaching.
