What is eLearning?
This may be a silly question for many of you; pardon me for my ignorance.
Recently, someone asked me whether eBooks can be called eLearning. His point was that, if eLearning is comprises all forms of electronically supported learning and teaching, eBooks are obviously elearning as it uses technology and also, teaches readers something or the other.
I am not sure if ebooks, podcasts, videos tutorials available in YouTube and so on are really eLearning or not. It could be eLearning because it contains information and is delivered using a technology. However, they do not measure the learning outcome. I am really confused about this.
Would like to know your thoughts on it.
