    Nagi, Kuldeep (Digital Production Press, Assumption University, 2015)

    Nagi, Kuldeep (2016)

    Since the beginning of this new century eLearning has come a long way. A decade ago, it was perfectly acceptable to just record a Power Point presentation and upload it in the Learning Management System (LM). In 2016, this approach is not viable.
