With the growing popularity of e-learning, a much-debated topic is whether e-learning is a substitute or a supplement for classroom training. My answer to this question is, it can be both. Those who understand both media – classroom training and eLearning – may agree with me. E-learning can be used either as a substitute or a supplement; it depends on the situation.When the content is conducive for self-paced learning. E-learning or self-paced learning can take the place of classroom training if the content is conducive for self-paced learning. E-learning can be used for content which can be easily understood and sticks with the learner when delivered in the online format.
