What is online learning?

Online learning refers to the use of a web-based system for the delivery of curriculum content and assessment activities. Using a computer with internet access, students log in to a website, read or listen to scholarly articles or recorded lectures, participate in 'live' lectures or discussions, and complete online assessments.
