E-learning platforms allow people to attend a course virtually (also known as 'on-line'), with no distance or time limitations. This is a major advantage, since it implies that more people can access new educational opportunities.

This type of education must be designed with great care, creating materials that will allow on-line submission, as well as activities where students can participate synchronously (that is, on-demand). Furthermore, this education method lacks the ways of communication we are used to (non-verbal communication, for instance), making it harder to provide those competencies that require the students' physical presence. The case of senior students additionally demands the use of adequate teaching methods that will take into account motivation, experience and abilities.
