E-Learning, or Online study as it is preferably called, refers to technology driven learning, especially through the internet. It can be defined as instructional content or learning experiences delivered or enabled by electronic technology. Currently, online training in India focuses equally on school and college-based courses as well as mid-level professional courses.
