The term ‘e learning’ in general refers to learning facilitated and supported through the use of information and communication technology.

It can cover a spectrum of activities from supported learning, to blended learning (the combination of traditional and ICT enhanced practices), to learning that is entirely online.

E learning, therefore, is an approach to facilitate and enhance learning through both computer and communication technology.

E learning today allows student to get fully involved in interactive and collaborative learning processes through the use of Internet –may be though asynchronous activities like e mail, discussion forum, blogs, wikis or through the synchronous activities like chat session, video conferencing etc.

A web based learning management system allows students to have access to rich digital content in multiple format and try out different thing with the inbuilt high level of interactivity features and makes the learning community-based through the ace to teacher and fellow learners.
