e-learning

(Electronic-LEARNING) Education and training via computer. E-learning is administered over the public Internet, private teaching networks as well as in-house via the local network. Also called "virtual learning" and "online learning." When administered remotely, it is also called "remote learning" and "distance learning."

In the 21st century, online education has become as significant as the classroom. Both free as well as paid college and university curricula are available in nearly every subject. During the COVID-19 pandemic, high schools and colleges quickly moved to e-learning. It was a good thing that online video services were already in place and that so many students were fortunate enough to have the required hardware in their possession. See MOOC and CBT.
