eLearning is the transfer of skills and knowledge via Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) which are often network-enabled (or supported). It encompasses a range of modes and platforms, such as web-based learning and computer-based learning, and a range of mediums, including the internet, learning management systems (LMS) like LEO, video and audio, and DVD. eLearning covers a broad continuum from fully online delivery to face-to-face learning, and can be self-paced or instructor-led. eLearning can encompass the use of a range of ICT tools that support learning theories such as reflective practices and social constructivism via such mediums as blogs (online journals), wikis, social networking, discussion forums, animations and podcasts.
ePedagogy refers to strategies of instruction or a style of instruction to support eLearning. A range of design strategies, many originating from instructional design, can be used to help build quality online programs.
