The term “eLearning” is a term covering a wide set of applications and processes that includes web-based learning or computer-based learning. eLearning is training that is delivered electronically in which a learner sets their own pace and is not being led in real time by a qualified instructor.

ELearning, combined with face-to-face learning, is also referred to as blended learning.

Learners have varying needs based on language, literacy, accommodation, scheduling, and location. As a result, a variety of delivery methods may be considered for approval, including classroom-based and blended learning programs.

When a blended learning program is being designed, the two sections of the training program must be well integrated.

For blended learning, evaluation in the face-to-face part of the training program must support and validate that the learning outcomes covered by the eLearning component of the training program have been adequately met by the learner.
