10 advantages of e-learning


1. e-learning enables people to learn anytime and anywhere. It allows learners to receive instruction despite geographic and time disparities.
2. It could cater to people with physical disabilities, women who were not allowed to enroll in educational institutions open only to men, people who had jobs during normal school hours, and those who lived in remote regions where schools did not exist.
3. It could provide educational opportunities to people in a country despite shortage of classrooms, qualified teachers, and instructional materials.
4. It is a cost-efficient way to deliver technical training (The US military in particular relies heavily on distance education technology in ‘upgrading’ its soldiers)
5. From the learners’ point of view, this provides the ability to pause and rewind and the advantage of moving at their own pace. If they need to listen to a lecture a second time, or think about a question for awhile, they may do so without fearing that they will hold back the rest of the class.
6. It allows students to enjoy private learning environment and increases their independence and personal responsibility for education.
7. e-learning, especially through the use of internet, enables students to access huge stores of information, which greatly enhances their research capabilities.
8. When using modern technologies (e.g. smart boards), information is presented to students in a new, fun, and engaging way. It presents good alternative to printed learning materials like rich media, including videos or animations, which enhance learning.
9. e-learning makes possible the offering of online courses through which people can earn their diplomas more quickly, or repeat failed courses without the embarrassment of being in a class with younger students.

10. Students also have access to variety of enrichment courses in online learning, and can participate in internships, sports, or work and still graduate with their class.
