Abstract

E-learning has received considerable attentions in both universities and enterprises. However, a few related studies have advocated the benefits of social features as an important factor of E-learning but have not explored much
further. In this work, we utilize social support theory to argue that embedding the social features into e-learning system is necessary and appropriate. Collectively, potential direction of e-learning has been simple summarized from theoretical and practical prospect. We hope our reviews on current literatures can benefit both scholars and practitioners.
