E-Learning: A Broad-Spectrum View toward Benefits and Pitfalls
Ebrahimi, Pouria
Online Submission
In a world on the move, the need for technology in any of its form is desired every minute of every day. For any type of technology to stay in vogue, real-time information is to be delivered to the applicants; otherwise, it is doomed to fall. The process of updating information and delivering it to the applicants needs education--with no doubt. But it seems that education is also employing technology to upgrade itself. Electronic learning, known as e-learning is becoming popular day in day out. This paper studies e-learning in a broad sense. Then, it goes through a general evaluation of e-learning in terms of the benefits and pitfalls. Put simply, although e-learning has proved itself beneficial in many aspects, it seems to bear some weak points still in need of more work and research. Thus, an absolutely positive look at e-learning as a substitution for traditional classroom would be harmful to the body of education in a way or another.
