Electronic Learning

June 11th, 2008 by Dr. Martha Angulo

Online learning is often referred to as e-learning, e-tutoring, e-school or some other ‘e’ word referring to the teaching-learning process. When we began working with internet-based educational programming, over ten years ago, we considered ‘e’ to stand for electronic. However, the ‘e’ in such titles signifies much more when describing online learning. Consider the following:

  • Exploration – Online learners use the Internet as a tool to access an abundance of information and resources.
  • Experience – Online learning offers the student a total learning experience, from synchronous learning to threaded discussion to self-paced study.
  • Engagement – Online learning captivates learners by providing for creative approaches to the teaching/learning process that foster collaboration and a sense of community.
  • Ease of Use – The Internet provides content easily accessible for students, parents and educational providers across all technical platforms.
  • Empowerment – Online learning puts the student in the driver’s seat with a set of tools that enables personalization of content and allows the learner to choose the way in which he learns the best.

    It takes care of all the unattended aspects of learning habits of your child. The increasing demand of online education all around the world proves this fact. Online teaching not only kills the shyness of students but also imporves various aspects of learning like reasoning, listening, asking and sharing.

    Nice blog. I got a lot of effective info. I’ve been following this technology for awhile. It’s fascinating how it keeps varying, yet some of the core components stay the same. Have you seen much change since Google made their latest acquisition in the area?


    I got into e-tutoring a little more than a year ago. I have really enjoyed it, but it’s still surprising to me that some people don’t even know about online tutors and teachers! This just means we have a ways to go still which is not a bad thing at all.

    I think online courses are of great use and are very helpful for all those who cannot go to universities for their study. They can actually get educated sitting at home.:)
