Abstract

The advantages of electeronic learning technology over the traditional class room learning system are discussed. In comparison with the traditional class room learning that centres on instructors, electronic learning offers a learner-centered self-paced learning environment. More multimedia based e-learning systems are becoming available to integrate and present learning materials in diverse media like text, image, sound and video. A multimedia-based electronic learning environment enables well-structured, synchronized and interactive multimedia instructions. A learning by asking (LBA) system allows the learners to type in the questions in either key words or conventional English to effect an interactive electronic classroom.
