E-learning
 
Why e-learning makes sense?
 
E-learning refers to the use of the Internet to deliver learning or training programs. E-learning involves moving the learning experience out of the traditional classroom and into the learner’s world. It means that the participant can learn at any time, any place and without geographical or scheduling barriers. It relies on the Internet for accessing learning materials and interacting with experts and fellow learners.
 
E-learning offers a unique opportunity to interact with participants across the world, creating a network of participants with similar professional interests, but who may have different cultures and backgrounds.
