A virtual learning environment (VLE) is an education systems based on the Web that models conventional real-world education by integrating a set of equivalent virtual concepts for tests, homework, classes, classrooms,and the like, and perhaps even museums and other external academic resources.

The lecturer is able to present lessons through video, PowerPoint, or chatting. The students are able to talk with other students and lecturer, as well as collaborate with each other, answer question, or pose questions.

E- learning comprises all forms of electronically supported learning and teaching. The information and communication systems, whether networked learning or not, serve as specific media to implement the learning process. The term will still most likely be utilized to reference out-of-classroom and in classroom educational experiences via technology, even as advances continue in regard to devices and curriculum. Content is delivered via the Internet, intranet, audio or tape, satellite TV, and CD-ROM.
