First online tutoring – when and where
The first online tutoring was a private for profit online school launched in 1989 by the University of Phoenix. Four years after phoenix’s first online tutoring ‘Criteria’, a creation by William Graziadel III was instituted. It was the first easy to use, scalable and affordable e-learning system addressing two very important aspects of e-learning even before the word e-learning was coined.
The year 1999 was the first time the term e-learning or electronic-learning was coined at an educational seminar.

The your tube was used in 2004 by Salman Khan to record instructional videos, to help his cousins solve some problems in math. This later evolved into a non-profit Khan’s academy which was then considered the equivalent of today’s e-learning
