E-learning refers to on-line learning delivered over the World Wide Web via the public Internet or the private, corporate intranet. The workshop on E-learning on Telecommunications event [ELETE 2005] is intended to provide an overview of technologies, approaches, and trends that are happening right now.

The constraints of e-learning are diminishing and options are increasing as the Web becomes increasingly easy to use and the technology becomes better and less expensive. As the ease of execution increases, more and more institutions are discovering the benefits of delivering training via the Web. Interest in e-learning is at an all-time high, and the workshop wants to serve as a stimulus to accelerate collaboration and dialog among the e-learning providers, trainers, IT researchers and the lifelong, self-directed learners. Such  business trends as an increased global economy, the pressures for rapid development, the necessity of teamwork are shaping the present state and the future of e-learning. Employees are increasingly aware that they must continue to update and advance their skills if they want to understand the state-of-the-art technologies and remain valuable to their organizations. This means that learners will be more and more self-directed, and they will want access to what they need when they need it. The Internet based educational materials and the e-learning providers have to meet this demand.

The workshop focuses on the latest trends in e-learning and also on the latest IT technology alternatives that are poised to become mainstream strategies in the near future and will influence the e-learning environment.

E-learning on Telecommunications workshop participants will consider how, when and where e-learning helps to solve the training needs, what are the challenges of creating and managing vast amounts of e-learning, how the upcoming IT technologies influence e-learning and how the Web based educational materials should be developed to meet the demands of the long-life, motivated and very often self-directed students.
