The number 2 corresponds with the second page in the Acrobat PDF.

It's only an 8-page PDF so don't accept any 'haven't got the time excuses'. If you were to ask a sample of e-learners in your organisation to describe their experience of e-learning in one word, there's a fair chance the most common response would start with a 'b'. And that's not 'beautiful', 'blistering', 'blinding' or even the just about acceptable 'beneficial'. It's quite likely to be 'boring'.
