e-Learning uses innovative technologies and online learning models to transform the way individuals and organisations acquire new skills and knowledge and access information. The recent growth of ebooks and tablet computers is promoting the drive towards digital education.
Online learning is more accessible than traditional tuition and is often more affordable. e-Learning does not attract the hidden costs of contact-based learning such as transport, material and stationery costs. It also allows working people to gain valuable education in the time available to them, so that they can increase their skills and improve their working lives.
