e-learning Suite is a highly robust, scalable, secure yet cost-effective e-learning solution. It is fully conformant with leading international standards like SCORM 1.2, and QTI, thus giving you the flexibility of choosing content from any of the vendors. Moreover it is built on flexible architecture and hence can be easily customized.

Early e-learning systems, based on Computer-Based Learning/Training often attempted to replicate autocratic teaching styles whereby the role of the e-learning system was assumed to be for transferring knowledge, as opposed to systems developed later based on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), which encouraged the shared development of knowledge.

e-learning is defined as instruction delivered on a computer via internet or CD-ROM (Clark & Mayer, 2007). It can be self paced or instructor led and includes media in the form of text, streaming video & audio and builds user knowledge to improve organizational functioning. E learning commonly refers to training delivered electronically in an organizational setting while Online Learning is used to differentiate courses delivered via the internet in educational settings.
