What is e-learning excellent for?

Continuing my variety of material that response problems I most get requested by studying experts, I consider one that's always challenging answer: what is e-learning excellent for?

There's nearly always an strategy behind this query or at least a excellent amount of problem about the possibility of e-learning. What individuals really want to know is whether e-learning has any importance beyond the obviously limited market of regulatory/compliance coaching. In particular they want to know whether it has the possibility to procedure what they are currently doing in the class room.

As with all of these material, fit complex by the fact that the questioner very hardly ever declares which kind of e-learning they are considering about. All kinds of e-learning - self-study guides, activities and styles, exclusive classes, electronic on the internet material, collaborative on the internet studying - has its own exclusive good and bad points and therefore very different prospective programs. However, it is possible to response the query without determining further:
E-learning, in its many and different kinds, is ideal for any studying action which does not have to be performed face-to-face (or, more hardly ever, using an different strategy such as print).
This is a highly effective statement but not over-stating the situation. E-learning provides the same to all studying activities that would formerly have been performed by other indicates. It also provides possibilities that have no precedent in conventional press. It cannot be used in any situation, however, because of some apparent limitations:
Without amazing add-ons, pcs perform with only two feelings - viewpoint and audio - and can only show so much on a presentation at once (even with a retina display!).
Access to quick methods is still not well-known, particularly moving around.
Not everyone has the necessary system and components, or the cabability to use them.
So what do these restrictions preclude? Supposing that accessibility the right pcs and the right methods is not a problem, then you can definitely eliminate all those studying activities that need an excellent sensors encounter, i.e. the cabability to clearly see activities (i.e. more than you can with a webcam), get in contact with or operate devices and additional aspects, or to actually connect to others or the broader atmosphere. In these circumstances (which only represent a variety of the circumstances with which most studying experts are confronted) e-learning can still usually perform group aspect as an element of a combination, even if it cannot do the whole job.

I suspicious that this fact is not going to fulfill most questioners, so next occasion I'll be more particular about the possibility programs for each of the primary kinds of e-learning.
