E-learning has proven to be the best method for corporations, primarily when MNCs conduct training programmes for their workforce worldwide. In e-learning, a teacher no longer directs students; instead, a step-by-step guide has replaced the teacher. The idea of web 2.0, life-long learning, open education, and social constructivism is often linked with this term. Librarians can benefit from e-learning as well as students and researchers. Staff training through additional online programmes assists employees in learning the latest ideas, handling new challenges, and meeting reader demands. E-learning is becoming more and more popular each year at universities across Canada. E-learning is a practical and effective option to practice on-the-job abilities, such as web searching, and address problems that stem from Internet resources. E-learning programmes can be custom-tailored to the profile, requirements, and collection features of academic libraries. Using e-learning in an academic library may provide many genuine benefits for users and instructors while also helping the institution. According to a new study by the University of Guelph's Department of Library and Information Technology, E-learning is essential for the growth of library facilities. India has 35 million students enrolled in higher education, compared to China's 51.6 million. The government is dedicated to achieving inclusive education, which necessitates an e-Learning system. Online learning must be prioritised to achieve the NEP 2020 goal of 50% GER by 2035. Some conventional institutions have twice the amount of ODL courses registered. The UGC must simplify its laws and streamline rules, says Naveen Thakur-Ganjibayyan.
