Our definition for e-learning

The main result of the research project "The e-learning conceptual framework" was the creation of an inclusive definition for e-learning, accepted by the majority of the international scientific community that participated in the project. Our definition is the following:

E-learning is an approach to teaching and learning, representing all or part of the educational model applied, which is based on the use of electronic media and devices as tools for improving access to training, communication and interaction, and which facilitates the adoption of new ways to understand and develop learning
