The advent of eLearning has been met with skepticism from many entrenched educational traditionalists, but such side-eyed glances at breakthroughs in online learning aren’t just unwarranted – they’re detrimental for students who could be benefiting from the Age of eLearning and simply aren’t yet. Traditional education is in an undeniable rut, with efforts to get students up to speed taking a back seat to red tape and an archaic approach to teaching methodology.
