E-learning (or eLearning) is the use of electronic media, educational technology and information and communication technologies (ICT) in education. E-learning includes numerous types of media that deliver text, audio, images, animation, and streaming video, and includes technology applications and processes such as audio or video tape, satellite TV, CD-ROM, and computer-based learning, as well as local intranet/extranet and web-based learning. Information and communication systems, whether free-standing or based on either local networks or the Internet in networked learning, underly many e-learning processes.

E-learning can occur in or out of the classroom. It can be self-paced, asynchronous learning or may be instructor-led, synchronous learning. E-learning is suited to distance learning and flexible learning, but it can also be used in conjunction with face-to-face teaching, in which case the term blended learning is commonly used.

E-learning includes, and is broadly synonymous with, multimedia learning, technology-enhanced learning (TEL), computer-based instruction (CBI), computer managed instruction, computer-based training (CBT), computer-assisted instruction or computer-aided instruction (CAI), internet-based training (IBT), web-based training (WBT), online education, virtual education, virtual learning environments (VLE) (which are also called learning platforms), m-learning, and digital education. These alternative names emphasize a particular digitization approach, component or delivery method.


The ILGS Platform

The Institute has built an  e-learning platform beginning with students’ registration through course delivery and a bank of learning resources. The e-learning component is to enhance learning and sharing, reduce cost and familiarise participants with electronic technology. Participants will be encouraged to continue to learn by themselves, share experiences, solicit assistance from facilitators and peers in finding solutions to professional and personal development challenges.


E-Learning Activities

Facilitators will:

  • Make available teaching notes (in PDF and PowerPoint) and other relevant learning resources to participants. The materials will be uploaded onto the e-learning platform;
  • Moderate discussion on the e-forum and summarise the discussion points and present same to the participants
  • Put on the e-platform assignments, collect, mark and submit them to the Dean of Management Development and Training
  • Be available to respond to enquiries by participants
  • Take records of each participant’s contribution to e-platform discussions, etc.
