The rapid growth of technological advances in recent years has opened a completely new dimension to progress in education and training. The emergence of e-learning has created not only business and educational opportunities, but also significantly improved the standard of the society. This chapter explores the implementation of e-learning and its impact on a community, similar to a university or corporate setup. To this aim, a brief introduction into e-learning technology and an example of using the Blackboard Learning System are brought forth, along with some critical success factors. Projecting the e-learning advantages along with the digital library concepts, the economic benefits of such implementation are highlighted. The discussion then moves to the perspective of students and teachers on e-learning. As the trend in the technological world is moving toward mobility, the wireless e-learning perception is also conferred. In the concluding remarks, e-learning implementation is noted as a positive endeavor to boost economic growth.
