This paper describes how e-learning is becoming popular and used as an alternative means of solving problems in education. E-learning is usually used in distance learning and may be used to replace conventional classroom teaching. Many educational institutions use Internet for collaborative learning in a distributed educational process. It has been known that traditional communications media can be replaced by electronic communication for the whole educational process and in particular, to assess the role of collaborative learning in a distributed education
environment. It has been found that a distributed educational process naturally supports collaborative learning environments in which students and tutors interact and provide essential support for students studying at a distance. The tutor’s feedback to students help the learning
process and there is indication that tutors are happy to work in the new environment. It is therefore suggested that “blended” online teaching – a combination of the use of the Internet as a medium of instruction and tutors to do face-to-face teaching via a collaborative learning approach – may be implemented to achieve enhanced distance-student performance.
