Over the past decade, e-learning has become a common educational option for students in post secondary education as well as in corporate training milieus. Yet, e-learning, defined here as learning at a distance via the web using computer technology, is only now establishing a firm foothold in the arena of adult basic education (ABE). One state currently developing a statewide e-learning program for adults is Virginia. eLEARN Virginia (eLEARN-VA) is a new e-learning program created and managed by the Virginia Adult Learning Resource Center in Richmond, Virginia. eLEARN-VA takes a blended approach to online learning, closely coordinating with local ABE program managers across the state, and supporting learners both virtually, with online mentors, and on-site, at the students local adult education center.
