It comes in various shapes and sizes
A large variety of eLearning is offered from non-profit organizations such as Khan Academy who provides a bank of free video lectures given by charismatic academics to popular software platforms such as Moodle, Blackboard and Canvas, allowing teachers and students to connect more effectively online.
MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses), which are free short online courses offered by reputable universities and lifelong-learning institutions in both formal and non-formal setting. MOOCs are becoming increasingly popular and often comprise multimedia material and interactive game-like environments.
MOOCs are free, yet with a good business potential
The biggest US Mooc network, Coursera, hosts courses from 100 universities worldwide. Free courses are usually introduced to encourage people to sign up for paid modules.
The UK is already being "MOOCed"
The British equivalent to Coursera, Futurelearn, now offers courses from more than half of the top 40 UK universities.

Advantages of eLearning
"E-learning" is a very broad term
It refers to all internet-based education, which could be anything from a free maths lecture on iTunes to a colour-coded language app or even a fully interactive ten-week course in analytical chemistry from a top university.
It's been around for nearly 40 years now
Introduced by UK and USA universities in the 1980s, since 2000 the web has been widely used by schools and universities as a means of distributing audiovisual material and course documentation.
People need maintenance and upgrades even more than machines do.
Retraining is maintenance.
Training is an upgrade.
Development is the next generation model.
