Today, educational technology is expanding rapidly into new areas such as virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) and learning analytics. Beyond hardware and software, educational technology also includes E-learning, M-learning, and distance learning:
“E-learning”, or electronic learning, is the use of computers and the internet for learning purposes.
“M-learning”, also known as mobile learning, is the use of mobile tech, such as mobile phones and tablets for educating.
Distance learning, which uses the the internet to educate across often large geographic distances, utilizes both m-learning and e-learning.
