Organizations need to develop a large number of e-learning modules quickly and at a low cost. These stringent requirements cannot be fulfilled using Flash and other tools, which require specialized skills to work with. Hence, organizations are increasingly relying on interactive e-learning software to expedite the online training development process.
With the introduction of computer and technology in the 20th century, the process of accessing information took a momentous turn. The very first online learning systems were used in schools, but it was only in the 2000s when the corporate world realized the potential benefits of e-learning for employee training. Fast forward to the present (a good 17 years) and online learning or web-based learning is – without sounding prudish – everywhere.
