E-learning represents convergence in the education, training and information fields. The term e-learning group together education, training and structure information delivered by computer / Internet. The recipient of E-learning today is mostly the adult learners. When we discuss learning design for adults, all our thinking is based on three more or less universally accepted truths about learning: Adults learn differently from children. There is general agreement that this is true. Andragogy, the science of adult learning, shows that there are valid approaches, which are specifically valuable when designing learning for adults. These include a focus on learner-centred design, layering knowledge development, signposting throughout content, and making strong emotional connections between learning content and the application of that knowledge.

Individuals learn differently at different times with different content and different motivations. There has been plenty of interesting work from Piaget to Honey and Mumford on the way different people learn. This paper doesn¶t discuss learning styles, but we believe that all learning should be designed to embrace a range of content styles wherever possible, to accommodate personal preferences. Learning can be accelerated and retention improved through the application of specific techniques and strategies. E-learning design uses diagnostic tools, information layering, and quick reference tools to accelerate learning. It uses colour theory, image, text, audio combinations and gaming theory to improve retention. So, in answer to the question posed E-Learning design is all about designing the right learning for the right audience, catering for different learning styles and maximizing the opportunities for effective learning. E-learning facilities all this and more, offering customization of programs to suit individual needs. Following are the advantage of e-learning: 1. E-Learning makes learning an active experience. No longer a passive experience. It is learning by doing. 2. It makes learning exciting, engaging and compelling. Boring subject can be made easier, more interesting, and appealing. 3.
