I’ve been both a student and a course administrator of eLearning courses.
I have personally taken an eLearning course that was sold as an online course, but was little more than a pdf of a book, slapped together with an assignment to accompany it. This to me is the laziest and worst form of eLearning, and in fact isn’t truly eLearning at all. This particular one was sold from an eLearning course onseller, so there was very little student support. There was no contact from the RTO and I did not complete the course.
