Pakistan’s e-learning community has tremendously grown in the past 2-3 years. This has especially been true post-covid since a lot of educational institutes had no option but to restrict themselves to distance learning or e-learning. Despite the challenges that come with e-learning platforms Pakistan has been able to adapt itself to the educational structure that is practiced all over the world.

The widespread use of 3G and 4G networks have also aided in the increase in the use of not just e-learning platforms but also m-learning platforms. The rise of e-learning platforms took place in 2020. Naturally, Pakistan was unable to adapt to the scenario at once – it was a challenge for both the teachers as well as the students. Since then there are efforts made to train faculty members to improve the quality of education and the delivery of lectures.

Here are some of the top e-learning platforms in Pakistan:
