E-learning means using computers and the internet for learning. Bernard Luskin, who knows a lot about this, says the "e" in e-learning stands for exciting, energetic, enthusiastic, emotional, extended, excellent, and educational, as well as electronic. E-learning uses different things like words, sounds, pictures, moving pictures, and videos. It can happen in a classroom or not in a classroom. It's good for learning from far away and having a flexible schedule.
E-learning has some good things compared to regular classes. You can decide when to do your class stuff if you have a job or family. You don't need to spend time and money on traveling to school. If you have a computer and the internet, you can study anywhere. You get to choose what you want to learn. You also learn how to use computers, which is helpful for your life and job. When you finish online classes, you feel good about yourself and you believe in yourself more.
But there are also some not-so-good things about e-learning. If you're not good at managing your time for studying, you might not do well. You might feel alone because you're not with your teacher or classmates. Sometimes, your teacher might not be around when you need help.
Even though e-learning has some problems, it's still very helpful.
