At iteravi, eLearning is defined as technology-enhanced education.
Technology-enhanced education is the use of communication and information technologies to improve teaching and learning. The selected tools used may be as simple as utilizing a text reminder app for sending students’ academic messages, as dynamic as developing a flipped classroom, or as complex as a transitioning to a learning management system. All types of technology and all levels of sophistication are embraced, provided they help accomplish the goals of your learning community.
There are many, often confusing and contradictory, perspectives on the term eLearning, some of which must change as often as the technology. Definitions may focus only on online learning, both real-time (synchronous) and self-paced (asynchronous). Many assume that eLearning means distance education, and that distance education is merely asynchronous, one-way communication between a teacher and a student. But we believe eLearning is much more. Let us show you how eLearning can benefit your learning community.
