What is it about?

E-learning, or learning and teaching facilitated and supported through the application of technology, is presently being used widely in all fields of education, and also being utilized extensively in medical education. We enlist the various ways e-learning can contribute to medical education in India (and other developing countries), and give relevant examples from e-learning usage in developing countries.
