What is the difference between e-learning, online learning, digital learning and blended learning?
E-learning means learning through electronic media (e.g. television, radio, CD-ROMs, Internet). The term 'electronic media' is often used in contrast with 'print media' (e.g. newspapers).
Online learning means learning conducted via the Internet. Since e-learning is typically delivered over the Internet, it is often equivalent to online learning.
Digital learning means learning involving the use of computing technology. For example, if some learning material is stored on a CD-ROM, it can be referred to as 'e-learning' (a CD-ROM is an electronic media) and 'digital learning' (a CD-ROM stores data that can be read by a computer).
Digital learning can happen online (via the Internet) or offline (inside a classroom). If it happens both online and offline, it is called blended learning.
