E-learning is sensational for a good reason. If done right, it can decrease costs and improve performance. Also, the elearning course is available for others. This includes the static e-learning course as well as any ongoing conversations in networked communities. Producing learning content is time consuming. With e-learning, each time the course is accessed, your return on investment improves because you are dividing the fixed production costs by the number of users. You also have savings through decreased travel, reduced material, and hopefully improved performance.
The course can be accessed anytime, anywhere, even without Internet access. Real learning requires some failure. E-learning lets you fail without fear. This encourages exploration and testing of ideas. With the right feedback, the combination of multimedia and instructional design with good practice activities can produce a very rich learning experience that is repeatable. E-learning allows you to create a standardised process and consistency in the delivery of content. Besides, it allows you a standardised process in a way that classroom learning doesn’t.

Mother Nature Our world is always changing, Constantly re-arranging.

Mankind, so smart, sometimes blind Leaves common sense far behind.
We’re moving fast and living large, Forgetting she’s the one in charge.
Amazed when she rings our bell, Sending us through living hell.
She can twist our steel, shake any city, If her wrath you feel, we shall pity.

It’s true, we must treat her right, Or we will incur a deadly plight.
Treat her with distinction Or surely face extinction; Edith A. Phinazee
