Training

E-learning is a term used to describe any form of electronically-based learning and teaching, including computer-based teaching both in and outside of the classroom, such as the streaming of university lectures  on an institution’s website.

SaaS applications are becoming increasingly popular with educational institutions because of the universal accessibility of the cloud, the large number of students using the software regularly and the high volume of multimedia content uploaded daily. Companies are also using e-learning software because it can deliver personalised and specialised training their staff on any subject – from sales training to management skills.
