The Simple Stuff
eLearning allows modern technology to deliver learning to a device of your choice at a time that works best for you. The courses and topics available are about a diverse and far ranging as you can imagine. They can be broad or niche, help you to perform more effectively at work, learn a new language, change your behaviours or modify your opinions.
They are courses lasting a matter of minutes, through to a fully integrated learning experience from which you could be awarded a recognised qualification. What they have in common is that they can be viewed from a pc, phone or tablet and you can decide where, when and for how long you want to continue the experience.
