E-learning is explained, the major fields of expertise are explored, gurus and experts are listed and a comprehensive range of links is provided.

- A growing and adapting resource. The field is growing quickly and knowledge is expanding quickly. This e-journey will be updated on a regular basis. Look for new information and resources at the beginning of each month.

The major topics include answers to such questions as:

What is e-learning? What types of e-learning are there?

What are the benefits of e-learning? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

What is the relationship of e-learning to online education and/or training?
