E-learning is “The use of any electronic technology to aid in the acquisition and development of knowledge and understanding in order to demonstrable and positively influence behaviors.”
Basically E-Learning is really just an umbrella term which covers a wide set of electronic educational applications and processes such as Web-based learning, computer-based learning, virtual classrooms, and digital collaboration. It includes the delivery of content via network, audio and video recordings, satellite broadcast, interactive TV, and CD-ROM as well as many, many others.
Recent reports show that learners actually want mobile, relevant, personalised and self-paced content at a point of need. What they get, is often a little different – with too much emphasis on face-to-face and long courses.
The digital revolution and smartphone boom has triggered huge changes in how we access, consume, discuss, and share content. Naturally, learning is following suit. Whilst many want learning at a point of need, many learn in evenings and at weekends and on the way to or from work.

HR professionals across all industries are aware of just how challenging it can be to conduct employee training.

A key element of any successful eLearning program is to keep the learners engaged in the course. A learner centered approach is a proven way of keeping learners engaged, and thereby ensuring effective eLearning.
A learner centered approach is one where the complete eLearning experience is focused on the learners. For example, the courses need to be very user-friendly, so that learners can navigate the course without any difficulty. They should be able to easily access the content of their choice, and skip the sections they are not interested in. Likewise, learners should find the courses relevant to their challenges and learning needs. The courses should include real life examples that learners can relate to.
