1) The origin of e-learning
Computer-aided learning and education have been devised for some time, and various forms have been developed, including CAI (computer-assisted instruction or computer-aided instruction). Later, with the development of CBT (computer-based training) and WBT (web-based training), the term e-learning appeared in the 1990s. In the United States, a system for taking the same course over a wide area using microwave and satellite communications had been established since the 1980s, but in the 1990s, a low-cost, highly interactive system using the Internet came to be widely used. In Japan, the e-Japan concept launched in 2001 has attracted the attention of a wide range of people.
