E-LEARNING has been a catchy word to many educators and trainers especially in the developing countries. To some people, e-learning is a ‘magic’ word that may give some positive meanings or great values to them and/or their organization. Yet, the definition and scope of e-learning is relative. To some people, e-learning is nothing more than the use of electronic devices for teaching and learning. Others look at e-learning as a new way of educating and training their staff and customers, including students and trainees, using various electronic gadgets. Supyan (2008) offers an operational definition and conceptual definition for e-learning.
According to him, conceptually, e-learning means a form of learning whereby learning process takes place in an environment which employs electronic technology, in network-based (local area network, LAN and wide area network, WAN) and non-networked, i.e. independent of network such as self-directed learning materials in forms of CD, DVD, MP3 or MP4 players.
