Abstract

Several universities worldwide have been offering their courses and programs through the e-learning mode, and this offering is changing the landscape of higher education. Disruptive information and communication technology and Internet technologies have been steadily impacting delivery of education. Social net worlds, wikis, blogs, YouTube, interactive websites, and integrated handheld communication technologies have taken over face-to-face meeting for learning. Virtual campuses with massive open online courses such as Coursera already deliver virtually every possible course through e-learning. Open online courses have already become the norm. Learners are utilizing formal and informal learning venues to create competence-based skill sets for higher employability. This article describes the evolution of the web, and consequently the evolution of e-learning, which is changing the landscape of higher education.
