University of Massachusetts,BOSTON
Online education is now way beyond a novelty. Some 4.6 million students took at least one online course during the fall 2008 term, or one in four enrolled students, according to the most recent Sloan Report on Online Learning.
Online education courses are delivered entirely via the Internet. Typically, students download the course materials right to their computers, and interact with professors and classmates in online discussion groups. Homework and tests are submitted through the computer. Many courses also incorporate video and audio lectures.

UNESCOPlace de Fontenoy, Paris,France
A variety of studies have evaluated the impact of eLearning and concluded that - supported by holistic approaches that include appropriate policies, infrastructure, professional development, and curricula - eLearning can help produce positive outcomes.
One-to-one (1:1) eLearning provides each teacher and student with a dedicated laptop for use at school and, in many cases, at home. Laptops serve as personal teaching and learning tools that are used throughout the day for many educational tasks and subjects. In a 1:1 environment, students get the maximum value from access to PCs, Internet connectivity, and their integration into the education environment.

Michigan State University ,East Lansing, Michigan, United States
Many studies of e-learning programs have concluded that the key to ensuring successful outcomes is to blend more traditional classroom approaches with those that use technology. E-Learning approaches should be treated as a powerful tool that teachers can use, but teachers need to learn how student learning changes with e-learning, and how to alter their teaching methodologies with pedagogical approaches that take advantage of the opportunities afforded by e-learning. A blended approach mixing face-to-face classroom methods with technologymediated activities seems to provide the highest learning outcomes.

E-learning is the use of Internet technologies to enhance knowledge and performance. E-learning technologies offer learners control over content, learning sequence, pace of learning, time, and often media, allowing them to tailor their experiences to meet their personal learning objectives
The University of Illinois (illinois.edu), United States
"Compared to the more traditional educational paradigm - the broadcast model, where knowledge is delivered from professor to student from on-high - e-learning turns teaching and learning into a shared endeavor,"
E-learning is defined as technology-based learning. Lectures, homework, quizzes and exams are delivered almost entirely or completely online. In some instances, no in-person interaction takes place over the length of the course.

Rochester Institute of Technology ,New York ,US
The creation of the Innovative Learning Institute (ILI) is a strategic response to the rapidly changing e-learning and educational technology landscape in higher education. This has been exemplified by schools such as Stanford, Harvard and MIT, as well as other universities that have aggressively used technology to redesign their existing courses. In Dr. Destler's words: "We must move to ensure that RIT will be a leader, not a follower, as these new educational paradigms are developed."

'E-learning' describes teaching and learning methods that are supported by the use of technology. Content such as lecture notes, timetables, reading lists and web resources can be easily uploaded to course pages, providing a constant and easily accessible reference for students to consult. A key benefit of e-learning is the increased opportunity for dialogue it offers to students and teachers, which in turn enhances the learning experience
