The omnipresence of internet and new technologies has an impact in education too. Apart from the traditional classrooms, students may attend lessons remotely. A good internet connection enables students to attend courses offered from various educational institutions regardless of time and space. Therefore, there is no doubt, that e-learning is becoming a new way of learning.
E-learning is distinguished on purely web based courses and mix courses- that is to say- a combination of physical presence and remote learning. The main benefit of e-learning is that people who are working full time are able to attend the courses they like. Among others, e-learning promotes active and independent learning, and it facilitates the access to learning material 24/7.
There is no doubt that e-learning requires advanced digital skills as the students should be able to navigate on the internet effectively and efficiently.
