    • E-learning has overwhelming advantages over traditional offline learning like 24x7 availability, quick updating, interaction, etc.
    • Does e-learning require a separate curriculum, or
    • E-governance training curriculum can include training in e-learning?
  • 35. E-learning and E-governance Training E-learning ( Online ) Learning ( Offline) E-governance Training Curriculum E-governance

    • Promoting e-learning
