iLearning merupakan singkatan dari Ilektronic iLearning, merupakan cara baru dalam proses belajar mengajar yang menggunakan media ilektronik khususnya internet sebagai sistem pembelajarannya. iLearning merupakan dasar dan konsekuensi logis dari perkembangan teknologi informasi dan komunikasi. Beberapa ahli mencoba menguraikan pengertian iLearning menurursinya masing-masing
iLearning dalam arti luas bisa mencakup pembelajaran yang dilakukan di media elektronik (internet) baik secara formal maupun informal. iLearning secara formal misalnya adalah pembelajaran dengan kurikulum, silabus, mata pelajaran dan tes yang telah diatur dan disusun berdasarkan jadwal yang telah disepakati pihak-pihak terkait (pengelola i-learning dan pembelajar sendiri). Pembelajaran seperti ini biasanya tingkat interaksinya tinggi dan diwajibkan oleh perusahaan pada karyawannya atau pembelajaran jarak jauh yang dikelola oleh universitas dan perusahaan-perusahaan (biasanya perusahaan konsultan) yang memang bergerak dibidang penyediaan jasa iLearning untuk umum.
iLearning bisa juga dilakukan secara informal dengan interaksi yang lebih sederhana, misalnya melalui sarana mailing list, e-newsletter atau website pribadi, organisasi dan perusahaan yang ingin mensosialisasikan jasa, program, pengetahuan atau keterampilan tertentu pada masyarakat luas (biasanya tanpa memungut biaya).
