E-learning is learning using any electronic medium. We began learning through computers and the Internet as soon as people began using computers for the Internet, decades ago.
Textbooks – the ubiquitous companions of students – play a significant role in instituting a structured approach to information dissemination and retention by learners. The internet is one giant source of information that brings enough information with questionable credibility. A well-researched book, compiled and edited by scholars and subject experts to match various levels of learning, helps filter through materials and deliver relevant information that will help students advance in their learning journey.
Remote learning with the imposed acceleration in adoption will play a crucial role in the education ecosystem. Remote learning helps people — who would otherwise have opted out — access education at their own pace and their convenience. The use of digital tools and virtual learning can add much to the current classroom-based learning system and will complement classroom-based teaching and learning.
