Digital learning refers to any type of learning that uses technology – in the broadest sense of the word. Thus, Anything that involves digital platforms, tools, systems, and applications by learners pertains to digital learning. This means that online courses, conducting internet research, even watching online videos, or using digital tools and devices face-to-face with their teacher in a traditional classroom are all considered digital learning.
It differs from online learning in that the latter only involves learning through the internet. The former is a broader term that includes the use of both internet and digital devices, tools, systems, and applications. Online learning uses the internet as a form of communication and learning. This means that students and the teacher can all be in the same room together and still adopt online learning.
