What is E-Learning?

By September 8, 2013 No Comments

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

E-learning (or electronic learning or eLearning) encompasses forms of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) or very specific types of TEL such as online or Web-based learning. Nevertheless, the term does not have a universally accepted definition[1] and there are divides in the e-learning industry about whether a technology-enhanced system can be called e-learning if there is no set pedagogy as some argue e-learning is: “pedagogy[2]. empowered by digital technology”

The term e-learning is ambiguous to those outside the e-learning industry, and even within its diverse disciplines it has different meanings to different people [1]. For instance in companies, it often refers to the strategies that use the company network to deliver training courses to employees and lately in most Universities, e-learning is used to define a specific mode to attend a course or programmes of study where the students rarely or never meet face-to-face, nor access on-campus educational facilities, because they study online.

Hmm... I like to draw, paint with pixels, share my thoughts in 140 characters or less, pretend to be a photographer, all while creating beautiful engaging user experiences on the internet. In short, I'm just all-around creative guy that likes to be on the move... Enough said it's time to go.
