E-Learning FAQs

Introduction to E-Learning

What is E-Learning and how will it help me?

E-Learning is electronically supported learning and teaching. It can be self-paced or instructor led. It is delivered by the internet including images, animation, video streaming and audio. It is a cost effective, convenient learning method.

What are the advantages of using E-Learning?

It’s flexible, it can be scheduled around your personal and work schedules making it very time efficient. There are no travel costs which can be incurred with traditional “live” training. It’s tailored to your needs, with self-paced learning and you can select your learning materials that meet your knowledge and interest.
