  2. 2. Defining e-Learning<br />Clark and Mayer (2007, p. 10) define e-learning as “instruction delivered on a computer by way of CD-Rom, Internet, or intranet.” <br />E-learning has the following features:<br /> includes content of relevance to the learning goal; employs examples as instructional methods and media elements as forms for the delivery of content; <br /> may be instructor-led (synchronous e-learning) or self-paced individual study (asynchronous e-learning); <br /> and creates new knowledge and skills to individual learning goals or to improved organizational performance. <br />
  3. 3. E-Learning experience<br />Asynchronous e-learning typically involves self-paced courses and discussion groups. An example of a no human interaction training course is a learning experience were students take courses through computer based technology using printed materials and digital media (illustrations, photos, animation or video) to complete an educational certificate program. <br />In a synchronous e-learning the instructors and the students are connected online via telephone and remotely attend actual “classes” through online web-based video interface. Students and faculty can all be at various locations. All they would need is a cell or telephone and access to a computer with broadband connectivity. In some cases where there is a small class small video cameras can be used between student and instructor. Other examples involve virtual classroom; audio and video conferencing; chat and instant messaging; shared whiteboard; and application sharing.<br />
