Disaggregated media: you know that thing we did where we made some slides, and we shot a short film, and then built an interaction and a quiz – then  wrapped them all together with 'next' and 'back' buttons and called it ‘a course’? It’s time to stop. Now we think about the useful/powerful bits of media or tools we can create and how they will reach people.

E-learning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

E-learning includes all forms of electronically supported learning and teaching, including Edtech. The information and communication systems, whether networked learning or not, serve as specific media to implement the learning process.[1] This often involves both out-of-classroom and in-classroom educational experiences via technology, even as advances continue in regard to devices and curriculum. Abbreviations like CBT (Computer-Based Training), IBT (Internet-Based Training) or WBT (Web-Based Training) have been used as synonyms to e-learning.

E-learning is the computer and network-enabled transfer of skills and knowledge. E-learning applications and processes include Web-based learning, computer-based learning, virtual education opportunities and digital collaboration. Content is delivered via the Internet, intranet/extranet, audio or video tape, satellite TV, and CD-ROM. It can be self-paced or instructor-led and includes media in the form of text, image, animation, streaming video and audio.

It is commonly thought that new technologies can make a big difference in education. In particular, children can interact with new media, and develop their skills, knowledge, perception of the world, under their parents' monitoring, of course. Many proponents of e-learning believe that everyone must be equipped with basic knowledge in technology, as well as use it as a medium to reach a particular goal.
