e-Learning is an umbrella term that refers to the use of any digital device or media (multimedia) for teaching and learning, especially for delivery or accessing of content. Thus e-learning can take place without any reference to a network or connectivity. The digital device used by the learner to access materials need not be connected to a digital network, either a local area network or to the Internet (or even to a cell phone network if a tablet is used as a terminal or access device).
