eLearning Glossaries

Think about e-Learning.

  • e-Learning applications and processes are constantly changing and evolving, and
  • the e-Learning community has members all over the world.

These two facts make communication and common understanding of e-Learning issues hard to follow. It is important that e-Learning professionals, researchers, experts, and learners have a common basis in order to communicate effectively. In other words, they need to “speak the same language”.  Therefore, I have created the following list of e-learning glossaries.

We support Free eLearning! Do you?
