This article makes interesting reading. For me this paragraph really resonates:
The ‘e’ has evolved. At first, the ‘e’ stood for electronic delivery of content. Now ‘e’ refers to learning can be distributed to everyone, everywhere – with new degrees of engagement and efficiency – which copes with rapidly evolving content. We could add more ‘e’’s, but the point here is that e-learning is about a significant process change in how organizations are linking learners with content and expertise.
What do you think the 'e' now stands for in e-learning?
