e-Learning requires a minimum
level of computer knowledge
Although e-Learning has many benefits for students and organizations, it also has limitations:
- Computer literacy and access to equipment. Any e-Learning system involves basic equipment and a minimum level of computer knowledge in order to perform the tasks required by the system.
- Some topics are not appropriate for e-Learning. Certain subjects that require physical activity and practice, such as sports and public speaking, are not good candidates for e-Learning. However, e-Learning can be a useful companion to traditional education for teaching background and technical information.
- The flexibility and student-centered nature of e-Learning requires a high level of student responsibility. A successful e-Learning student must be well organized, self-motivated, and possess good time management skills.
