  • Flexible Learning is a set of educational philosophies and systems, concerned with providing learners with increased choice, convenience, and personalisation to suit the learner. In particular, flexible learning provides learners with choices about where, when, and how learning occurs. Sometimes also referred to as personalized learning . Flexible learning is a term often used in New Zealand and Australia see Shurville et al. (2008) What is e-learning? E-learning is the effective learning process created by combining digitally delivered content with learning support services. V. Waller and J. Wilson E-learning consists of the transfer of skills and knowledge using electronic applications and processes. This may include Web-based learning, computer-based learning, virtual classrooms, and digital collaboration, use of audio or video recording, satellite or land-based broadcasts, CD-ROM, and even the phone system. E-Learning can be broadly defined as any use electronic technology to create learning experiences. As you can see above, e-Learning encompasses a number of different modalities or the combination of them. Here we will only address a few examples.
