An e-learning course enables people to learn material at their own pace, with no instructor present. Machine learning programs optimize learning with supervised, unsupervised, semi-unsupervised, and reinforcement methods.
While individuals use these courses the most, the highest-paying customers include higher education institutions and corporations.
Of note, although the term is often used interchangeably with "distance learning" or "virtual classroom," these terms refer to a learning environment overseen by a professional educator. E-learning is self-directed.
