Due to the ideal bonding of technology and information most institutes and universities run their own e-learning, via students can download course materials, communicate with their tutors online and participate on online webinars. The majority of courses now include a digital component, giving students the chance to work collaboratively through forums, blogs, wikis and video conferencing.

In distance education Universities it is defined as a planned teaching/learning experience that uses a wide spectrum of technologies mainly Internet to reach learners at a distance. Lately in most Universities, e-learning is used to define a specific mode to attend a course or programs of study where the students rarely, if ever, attend face-to-face or for on-campus access to educational facilities, because they study on-line.
