eLearning vs. Udemy
A generic definition of “eLearning” would be “any learning that happens via electronic media”. In this sense, Udemy courses fall under the umbrella of eLearning. Udemy i a MOOC (massive open online course) platform that has its own LMS (Learning Management System) that allows course creators to create and sell a course.
However, eLearning is an industry that goes well beyond the Udemy platform. eLearning has come to mean something slightly different than what Udemy courses offer. Nowadays, the term “eLearning” and the “eLearning industry” generally refers to what we think of as “corporate training”, or, “online education” in a school setting, such as K-12 programs.
