What is e-learning?
To get started, let’s define eLearning. eLearning or electronic learning is a system of learning-based systematized teaching with the aid of electronic resources such as computers, mobile phones, tablets, and sundry. It’s a type of learning that delivers learning and training through electronic resources. It is effective and can be used anywhere and anytime, it gives this sense of not being obliged to work at a particular time which makes study much easier and stress-free with little to no restrictions.
The History of eLearning training
Long before the internet was launched, distance learning was offered to students with education on a particular aspect in subjects or skills, and exams were done with pen and paper, in 1924, the first examination machine was designed to test students, it wasn’t until 1960 that the first computer-based training program was invented. With the introduction of computers and the internet in the late 20th century, people were able to own a computer in their homes, then virtual learning environments began to flourish since people have started gaining access to online information.
eLearning has been in existence since 1999 when the word was first used by Elliot Maisie at a computer-based test system seminar. In the 2000s, businesses inaugurated the use of eLearning to train their employees.
Since then, eLearning training has developed into the important sector it is today and it is one of the most popular and effective ways to deliver training from any ort of the world. But you should know this growth was facilitated by the development of some technologies like:
The Internet: the rise of the Internet helped increase the flexibility of using eLearning training as there is no more need for printed manuals, CD-ROMs, and other restrictive methods that were used for learning before the internet.
Affordable digital devices: coupled with the rise of the internet, the availability, and affordability of digital devices have a great influence on the growth of eLearning training. It is understandable knowing that e-learning employs the use of a lot of digital resources.
Improvement of learning management systems (LMS): The e-learning management system is the software application used for delivering and managing online courses or training. The improvement of the system such as the integration with cloud-based computing, etc. has made them easier and faster to use. These improvements to the LMS give it the functionalities and support to meet your objectives for your e-learning course and audience.
How to Deliver eLearning courses
We’ve explained what an eLearning course is and we’ve explained the history behind eLearning training. Whether you want to use eLearning to aid your customers to understand your goods and services better, or keep your employees up to date on company strategies, or provide students with formalized education, there are several eLearning methods you can use.
Deploy an LMS system
LMS means a learning management system, it’s a software application that is used in delivering online training. LMS allows you to host your eLearning training courses, manage learning content and track users’ progress.
In 2021, LMS must support mobile learning: mobile learning is the delivery of education or training materials on mobile devices such as phones, tablets, and sundry. The design of online courses and the LMS itself has to be mobile-friendly, so content should be able to adjust to different screen sizes.
According to research conducted by Brandon Hall Group, a huge percentage of users want the eLearning training to be broken into multiple, smaller fragments.
There has to be a social platform among learners where they can communicate with each other thereby increasing competition among students which in return, affects the student performance in a positive way.
- An LMS has to be easy to use: A good learning management system is user-friendly and intuitive to whoever the user may be. It should be quick to learn how to use it. Ease of use is the most important feature of a learning management system. A good LMS must have the ability to easily share eLearning training data across organizational systems.
- LMS Content management. content management is a set of processes that supports the collection, management, delivery, and publishing of information in any format. We have different types of digital content management, we have social media content management, web content management, mobile content management, and enterprise content management. All the types of content management mentioned above are self-explanatory. In addition, some CMS (content management system) tools are WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla.
- Another must-have LMS feature is content management, content management is a set of processes that supports the collection, management, delivery, and publishing of information in any format. We have different types of digital content management, we have social media content management, web content management, mobile content management, and enterprise content management. All the types of content management mentioned above are self-explanatory. In addition, some CMS (content management system) tools are WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla.
- Another important feature of LMS is its flexible testing and assessment options, it has to keep track of the user’s progress. but the kind of feature you use is dependent on you.
- Data security is one feature we can’t ignore. An LMS doesn’t only hold the personal information of learners but also the eLearning training material of the website.
We are happy to deploy Moodle LMS on a cloud-based Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure server and provide you with access in 1 day!
SCORM online courses
SCORM is an acronym that stands for Shareable content object reference model. It provides the communication method and data models that allow eLearning and LMSs to work together. SCORM tells programmers how to write code so that what they develop will work properly with other eLearning software. To those new to the eLearning world, SCORM appears to be like a complex concept. But we will break it down for you in the section. SCORM provides your learner with a more interactive, engaging experience, and it gives the user greater control over the time spent on the eLearning training. We develop SCORM eLearning courses as this format fits perfectly into Moodle LMS as well as most other LMS systems, or alternatively, the SCORM course can be used stand-alone and be published on a web link just like any website is.
Why should you use SCORM?
The biggest benefit of using SCORM is its ability to integrate with other systems to exchange and make use of information. SCORM takes care of making sure the content you are about to use is compatible with LMS and that LMS would be able to import, launch and track course progress.
Without SCORM, the integration of a course with LMS would be time-consuming and expensive.
xAPI stands for experience API, it is often described as the next evolution of SCORM, it has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences. It is a new learning technology that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of experiences a person has both online and offline. xAPI is an ideal tool for sharing learning between multiple systems.
The main difference between xAPI and SCORM is the ability of xAPI to track the user learning activities from multiple contexts both online and offline, but SCORM focuses only on LMS.
xAPI offers a level of flexibility that suits today’s fast-paced world. In the modern world, learners want to study while working or doing whatever they like doing, and getting a flexible eLearning method comes in handy.
Types of e-learning Training
eLearning training enables the learners to learn anytime and anywhere People use eLearning for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s to learn a new skill or learn about your class subject, or for online classes, mostly for remote learning, the convenience, and accessibility eLearning offers are very significant. There are two main types of e-learning training namely, synchronous and asynchronous eLearning.
Synchronous eLearning is the type of eLearning where the learner and tutor have online interaction, the users receive learning resources through the virtual classroom, audio, and video conferencing, or webinars, or application sharing, or internet, or chat. Synchronous eLearning is gaining much popularity because of improved technology and the recent COVID-19 lockdown.
Asynchronous eLearning is the kind of eLearning where the teacher and the learner do not need to be online at the same time. Asynchronous eLearning may use technologies such as blogs, discussion forums, email, CDs, DVDs, and sundry.
Learners have the freedom to learn anytime and anywhere, all they need to do is to download documents, chat with the teachers and chat with colleagues. Many learners prefer asynchronous eLearning because it doesn’t affect their everyday life. We have other types of eLearning training like:
Benefits of e-learning for your organization

- eLearning Courses are very cost-effective as they don’t cost a lot when compared to traditional seminars and face-to-face onboarding sessions. eLearning removes the cost of printing out using materials and onsite instructors. It also allows flexibility for both the instructors and the learners as you can easily update and edit your e-learning materials.
- eLearning courses save time as you are allowed to learn at your own convenience. Moodle LMS allows you to automate a huge number of manual tasks usually performed by HR and Managers.
