What is E-Learning Design & Development?

E-Learning is the use of digital technology to facilitate and enhance learning and training. This use of technology has become so important in today's world that high schools, colleges, government organizations, nonprofit institutions, and businesses both large and small use e-learning to educate, train, inform, and coach.

Nearly all industries today use e-learning to further professional goals.
