REVIEW: Research on E-Learning and ICT in Education

Reviewed By Harun BOZNA

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have had a substantial impact on current society. The way we communicate, work and entertain has changed deeply. Education is one of the fields where ICT applications have been used expansively over the years. Educators have recognized the importance of digital materials since the early days of computers and believed that these materials can be easily managed and distributed to learners to improve the quality of education via multimedia, hyper media and interactivity. The advent of the Internet and the web has given the opportunity to educators to distribute the digital learning materials and support new forms of web-based learning. Accordingly, the development of e-Learning systems, which support sharing of digital learning material and facilitating communication between learners and educators, has become a vital issue in education platforms.
