“Critics of e-learning are quick to point out that many course offerings are nothing but digital page-turners. Some refer to the act of taking an e-learning course as ‘e-reading.’ Many reasons are attributed to this prevalent condition — from time and budget constraints to limitations of traditional instructional design.
