Limitations of e-Learning
Although e-Learning has many benefits for students and organizations alike, it also has limitations.
- Computer literacy and access to equipment. Any e-Learning system involves basic equipment and a minimum level of computer knowledge in order to perform the tasks required by the system. A student that does not possess these skills, or have access to these tools, cannot succeed in an e-Learning program.
- Some topics are not appropriate for e-Learning. Certain subjects that require physical exertion and practice, such as sports and public speaking, are not good candidates for e-Learning. However, e-Learning can be a useful companion to traditional education for teaching background and technical information.
- Students themselves can be a limitation to e-Learning. The flexibility and student-centered nature of e-Learning requires a high level of student responsibility. A successful e-Learning student must be well organized, self-motivated, and have good time management skills. What you get out of an e-Learning program is directly related to the amount of effort you put in.
