E-learning is utilizing electronic technologies to access educational curriculum outside of a traditional classroom. Alternative learning methods are now providing solutions to some of the challenges in the world of education today. Some of these challenges are lack of qualified teachers, proximity, no classrooms, lack of learning materials, high cost of education, gender discrimination just to name a few.
With the advancement of technology, learning has been made freely available and is used by a large number of the society as long as appropriate technological devices like phones, laptops, Ipads, tablets, and computers are available. People now have access to educational materials anywhere, anyhow and at any time. The new media is a very fascinating place for entertainment and information sharing globally. Look at the case of social media platforms that allow users to share their thoughts, upload pictures, exchange ideas with each other, chat live with people from other continents and so on.
Nowadays, people do not have to be in a classroom physically. It has even gone as far as people obtaining degree certificates from ivy league schools by simply attending classes and taking exams online.
