E-learning is the delivery of a learning programme by electronic means; it includes web-based learning, virtual classrooms, digital collaboration and delivery of content through internet. It can be combined with face-to-face learning with a teacher, in blended learning.

Example
A learner may choose to sign up for an online language skills programme, which will offer reading, writing, listening and live speaking activities over the web. There may be a tutor who will monitor his progress, organise speaking sessions, and mark written work.

In the classroom
The face-to-face class time in a blended learning programme will be used to clear up organisational problems, for an emphasis on speaking skills, and as an opportunity to help build a good class dynamic between group members.
