Understanding eLearning Development

by Ron Kurtus (updated 16 March 2023)

eLearning includes Computer-Based Training (CBT), Web-Based Training (WBT) and Electronic Performance Support Systems (EPSS). It is important in the business world for providing training of a company's personnel and customers, as well as a means for students and consumers to learn various subject matters on their own. Organizations using eLearning can become leaders in their fields.

There is a need for people who can effectively develop eLearning, CBT, WBT and EPSS material. Your knowledge and skills in this area can help advance your career or improve your business.

The purpose of these free online lessons is to give you a start at improving your eLearning development skills. Before you begin, it is a good idea to go through Succeed in Training or Succeed in Education, since eLearning is a subset of those topics.
