The Landscape of E-Learning is a
random landscape of specific subjects related to all training that is
delivered with the assistance of a computer. Delivery of e-learning can be
via CD, the Internet, or shared files on a network. The term E-learning
evolved from CBT (Computer Bases Training) along with the maturation of the
Internet, CDs, and DVDs. E-learning also includes Internet-based Learning,
Web-based Learning, and Online Learning.
In higher education especially, the increasing
tendency is to create a Managed Learning Environment (MLE) in which all
aspects of a course are handled through a consistent interface that is
standard throughout an institution, giving students a consistent user
interface. MLE is a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) combined with a
Managed Information System (MIS).
This word storming (brainstorming) is a mental exercise for producing ideas
by right brain thinking (random, visual, subjective, emotional, holistic,
intuitive, creative, divergent).
