These terms typically emphasize a particular aspect or delivery mode.

Online or e-learning provide lessons using various types of media to deliver text, audio, animation, images, and video.  These can be delivered over a number of transmission methods including: tape, satellite TV, CD-ROM, and computer-based, as well as local intranet and web-based training.

Because of the delivery modality, e-learning can happen in a classroom, at home, in the office, or via you smart phone. Because it is asychronous it is inherently self-paced, or it may be instructor-led, synchronous learning. E-learning is flexible, but it can also be used in conjunction with face-to-face teaching, in which case the term blended learning is commonly used.
