Abstract: This paper addresses understanding E-learning from the constructivist teaching perspective. It also outlines the different types of E-learning delivery systems (online professional learning community, video broadcast, individualized self-paced instruction, voice over internet protocol (VoIP) and hybrid formats) aligned with the tenets of constructivist approach. This paper further explores how the six tenets of constructivist teaching approach (learning should be context based, conceptual learning is through active involvement, learning is through collaboration with others, learner should have personal autonomy and control over learning, learning is personal growth and learning outcome is a perspective and an understanding) was defined within an E-learning Advanced Technology course.
