A learning environment may be a physical training room, digital learning platforms, learning apps etc.
Learning material may constitute printed material, digital content of any form like Off-the-self-content, content, game, video, animation, podcast or a mix of everything.
Learning activities include classroom sessions, workshops, events, demonstrations or eLearning content in various modalities.
Whether the learning is online or offline, Learner support system is most important part of a program’s long-term success. Learner support system may constitute Forum, Chat, or phone support to the learner to ask questions and clarify doubts.
