Origins of “eLearning”
NOVEMBER 30, 2008
The term eLearning also enjoyed simultaneous discovery. Learning is whatever gets past their personal firewalls (AKA skulls) and lodges in the brain. No wonder eLearning sprouted up in many places. Elliott Masie's bio says he is "acknowledged as the first analyst to use the term e-Learning." I have been credited with the first use of eLearning on the web. Update : I just came upon an article on the web that talks of eLearning in 1997.
