E-learning and classrooms ‘not mutually exclusive’

When trainers and educators debate the merits of e-learning in relation to traditional classrooms and lecture halls, the argument often becomes one of polarised opinions, in which the two are seen as mutually exclusive. Both have strong arguments for and against, but in taking such a stance and seeing the two methods as fundamentally incompatible, educators will by definition be stuck with the flaws of their chosen approach while losing out on the benefits of the other. While classroom learning environments can provide much more immediacy and direct communication between students and teachers, they are also limited by time and location, and can be too expensive to repeat for those unable to attend.
