Similarities and differences with children learning

You don’t need to be a web developer, software engineer, or graphic designer to create
e-learning. You can use simple, intuitive tools to create rich, interactive e-learning that
captivates your learners and gets the job done.
E-learning is learning content that’s delivered using electronic devices such as
computers, tablets, or phones. They’re self-paced and interactive.
People use learning management systems to deliver and track training. So when you’ve
created your e-learning, you might want to use an LMS to deliver your course to
learners and track how they do
LMSs came about for three basic reasons:
 To control access to e-learning courses
 To track how far learners get with their courses
 To store and archive your e-learning courses
 Provide information regarding learner activity
 Lets you mass-upload a list of learners, via an Excel file, for example. Useful for
large organizations that need to manage hundreds of learners
 Allows you to host and sell your e-learning courses
 Generates certificates for learners who successfully complete courses. This way,
companies (and individual employees) have physical proof that employees have
completed the course.
 Lets learners switch the language of the interface. Perfect for global companies
 Adds collaboration through social media elements such as chat, forums, etc.
These tools are a nice way to increase user engagement with your online training
 Allows learners to access courses via their mobile devices
 Learning paths: Enables you to create training programs for individuals or groups
of individuals with specific learning needs.
 Lets you create quizzes directly in the LMS instead of using an authoring tool.
Perfect if you don’t have access to an authoring tool and you want to add a quiz
to your PowerPoint presentation.
