Analysing e-Learning and Modern Learning Environments

Seppo J. Sirkemaa

Abstract—Advancements in information technology have made available tools that allow learning to take place anytime and anywhere. The changes in technology demand changes in the way education is being arranged as well. The answer has been increased involvement of information technology in all stages of the learning process, which has been known as e-Learning, or more recently as m-Learning. The discussion around e-Learning and m-Learning reflects the skills needed in the modern labour market, and it highlights the importance of technology in the modern society. Consequently, there are significant pressures to develop learning environments that use modern technology. With all technology and portable devices available today, are we already in modern learning environments?

Index Terms—E-learning, m-learning, learning environment, modern learning, education.
