Over the past two decades as of May 2003, businesses have been developing their IT strategies while the education sector has been left behind in the technology stakes. Although there is no doubt that great advances have been made with the integration of ICT in the classroom, there is still a huge gap in the facilities that children have to support their learning and ICT skills at home. Throughout Great Britain, both large and small businesses are increasingly aware of the need for pupils leaving school to be IT literate. E-learning is the ideal medium to achieve this, because it enables children to extend their ability to learn outside the traditional school classroom and timetable, ensuring success later on.
