"e-Learning shouldn’t be a causal joy ride on a Sunday afternoon with the cruise control engaged.  The sole purpose of e-learning is to teach." -- Christopher Palm

"e-Learning is changing.  And, we will see new models, new technologies and designs emerge.  So let’s drop the “e” – or at least give it a new and wider definition."  -- Elliot Masie

In the 21st century, the challenges of the digital age have a significant impact on learning and teaching.  With the advancement of information technology, e-learning has been placed increasingly at the heart of modern education systems.

e-Learning is often understood as the integration of new digital technologies and applications in learning, but it involves a whole lot more than that. It is not simply about making use of digital devices in the classroom for the sake of using them. It involves the new and exciting opportunities for learning that are made possible when we put digital devices and web-based applications into the hands of students and provide them with meaningful tasks and projects to work on. e-Learning, if implemented appropriately, can tap into students’ creativity and critical thinking skills and provide them with platforms to communicate and collaborate beyond the physical walls of the classroom. It also involves redesigning tasks that require students to make use of new technologies and applications and enable them to learn in ways that were simply not possible in previous generations.
