THIS IS A TIME THAT THE QUALITY OF E-LEARNING IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES SHOULD BE IMPROVED AS AN ESSENTIAL DEMAND

The demand for higher education is increasing day by day and students are looking for alternate options to choose but the service is not available at present.e-Learning can meet the demand for enrolling these groups of students and professionals.
the infrastructure and primary awareness among the policy makers have already been developed, and we need to enforce the e-Learning issues from the competent authorities.( Md Shahid Uddin Akbar,2004).
The educational technology depends mainly of teacher and the students must physically participate in the learning process. Regardless of obvious advantages as a direct contact between a teacher and students and immediate feedback the traditional classroom education has many disadvantages. For example if the student has no ability to take part in some lesson he or she will miss the training material.
These disadvantages lead to search for new and more effective educational methods.
The rapid growth of information and communication technologies and rising computer
knowledge of the students make possible appearance of these new educational forms.
E-learning is any learning that utilizes a network (LAN, WAN or Internet) for information/knowledge delivery, interaction or facilitation. This would include distributed learning, distance learning (other than pure correspondence), CBT (Computer Based Training) delivered over a network, and WBT (Web-Based Training). It can be synchronous (real time), asynchronous (self-paced), instructor-led or computer-based or a combination.
