2. What is E-Learning?
E-Learning is a learning platform utilizing electronic
technologies to access educational curriculum
outside of a traditional classroom.
3. Types of E-Learning
Communication is real time.
Same time and different place
Learners view content at the same time
Responses are immediate
Learners must meet at the same time.
E.g Live chat, online conferencing
Communication is not in real time
Different time-different place
Learners view information & respond at
different times & from different places
E.g. E-mail, Wiki, Discussion forums,
6. Approaches of E-Learning
Instructor-led E-Learning Self-Paced E-Learning

Need to finish assignments and
activities before deadlines.
The more capable learners may feel
bored or frustrated
The less capable learners may feel
lost and overwhelmed.
Guide and facilitator of learning.

quickly to learn.
8. Why e-Learning Projects
1. Wrong Analysis of Business Requirement
Solution – Using technology to deliver learning solutions aligned towards the business objectives,
2. Lack of Skill Sets and Knowledge Areas
Solution – Internal collaboration, re-engineering old school approaches of learning,
and building new skills within the team using automated platforms and project
3. Failing to Plan and Poor Project Management
Solution – Using project management tools like ProofHub to plan things, and bringing the team
together can help you to plan things in the project in a better manner.
9. Why e-Learning Projects
4. Communication Gap
Solution – Effective use of standardized project communication practices, documenting and
sharing project progress with the team members, and open communication channels can
put an end to this problem.
5. Stakeholder Conflict Leading to Poor
Solution – Bring trainers into the picture, blend traditional classroom training tactics with
modern e-learning capabilities to work towards involvement of all the team members.
6. Inability to Report Success
Solution – Using technology to gather information and measure success can be the best
A learning management system (LMS) is a software-
based platform that facilitates the management, delivery,
and measurement of an organization’s corporate e-
Most learning management systems are cloud-based
software solutions that companies use as their
fundamental tool for managing their corporate training
Just as sales teams depend on CRM software, or HR
teams relies on HRIS software, LMS software is usually
the core technology used by an organization’s Learning
and Development (L&D) department.
12. Who Uses an LMS?
On a more specific level, there are two key types of LMS users:
Learners – Learners are on the receiving end of corporate
training. Learners who have access to the corporate LMS will
be able to see their course catalog, complete their assigned
courses and any evaluations, and measure their own progress.
Learners can be assigned training on an individual basis, or
according to their job function, and/or role in a company’s
Administrators – Administrators are on the opposite side of
learning technology as learners – that is, they are responsible
for managing the LMS, which involves the combination of a
number of tasks: creating courses and learning plans, assigning
learners to courses, and tracking learner progress.
13. What is an LMS Used For?
At a basic level, learning management software is used to centralize,
deploy, and measure corporate training.
A state-of-the-art learning management system has the capabilities to
support a variety of internal and external corporate use cases,
Employee Training – Perhaps the most common LMS use case is to
support the training and development of internal employees. Within the
LMS, courses can be assigned to ensure employees acquire the right
job skills, are informed about product changes, are up-to-date on
compliance training, etc.
Customer Training – Another common LMS use case is for
organizations to provide training to customers. This is especially
common for software and technology companies who need to
effectively onboard users so they can use their product effectively.
Ongoing customer training will also provide more value to customers
and prevent customer churn.
Partner Training – An LMS can also be leveraged to train an
organization’s partners and channels (e.g., resellers). This is a great
way to enhance your partnership programs and provide more value to
15. Key Features of an LMS
There are over 700 solutions in the LMS
landscape, each offering something
different than the next.
Here are some of the key features that
an LMS should include:
16. Key Features of an LMS
Automated Admin Tasks – Features that allow administrators to automate recurring/tedious tasks,
such as user grouping, group enrollment, deactivation, and new user population.
Certifications and Retraining – The LMS should allow for the tracking and management of all
certification and retraining activity (e.g., by managing recurring training/continuing
Social Learning – As mentioned, your LMS should also be able to support informal training activities.
Your LMS should include features that encourage collaboration, peer mentorship, and knowledge
Mobility – Learning content should be able to accessed anytime, anywhere, regardless of device.
Learning management systems should allow content to be accessed on mobile devices to better
enable learning at the point of need.
Course and Catalog Management – At its core, a learning management system is the central
system that holds all eLearning courses and course content. Administrators can easily create and
manage courses and course catalogs to deliver more targeted learning to your users.
Content Integration and Interoperability – Learning management systems should support learning
content packaged according to interoperable standards such as SCORM, AICC and xAPI (formerly
Content Marketplace – Not all learning content is internally produced. Allow your learners to access
off-the-shelf courses from global eLearning content providers like OpenSesame and Lynda.com.
17. Key Features of an LMS
Notifications – Notifications help learners stay on top of their required training. LMS training systems
should support automatic, real-time notifications indicating learner progress, course completions,
certifications, achievements, comments, and more.
White-labeling and Branding Customization – Immerse your learners in a completely unique
eLearning platform and maintain brand consistency within your eLearning experience.
Gamification – Increase learner engagement by allowing learners to achieve points, badges, awards,
etc. on all learning activities.
Integrations – Keep your organization’s data in sync with an eLearning LMS that allows for third-
party integrations with other platforms, such as your CRM, video conferencing tools, and so on.
Ecommerce – If your business model would benefit from selling courses, your LMS should integrate
with ecommerce platforms like Shopify, and/or payment gateways like Paypal and Stripe.
ILT Classroom – The purpose of a training management system is not to replace in-person learning
with online learning – rather, it’s to better support learning as it actually happens (i.e., via a mixture of
formal and informal methods) and provide a way to deliver, track, and measure learning activities. As
such, your LMS should also support in-person and classroom-based learning initiatives (e.g.,
managing classroom schedules, monitoring performance and attendance, etc.).
Reporting – One of the most important features an LMS should include is the ability to track and
measure the impact that your training programs are having on your business.
23. What Sets MOOCs Apart from Other
Distance Learning Options
Online colleges have been around for quite a while, and they are widely understood
and utilized. However, MOOCs have only been around since 2012 (many consider the
aforementioned course taught by Dr. Thrun to be the first real MOOC), and many
people either don’t know what they are or assume they are similar to online college
Before MOOCs came on the scene, there were two other basic types of distance
learning: OpenCourseWare (OCW) and online college classes – both are at opposite
ends of the spectrum.
OCW is basically just a publication of an institution’s course material online. The
material can be used by anyone and even edited (as long as proper attribution is
made). Many consider OCW to be the predecessor to MOOCs as they share the same
goal of making quality education accessible to everyone.
Conversely, online colleges provide a structured university class online. The students
must be enrolled in the university and are paying tuition and receiving grades as they
would if they physically attended the class.
24. MOOCs are a kind of middle ground between the
two extremes. Here are some of the main

While we are talking about e-learning, there
are still the societies in some parts of the
world which are deprived of technology.
