Developing technologies has necessitated a re-evaluation of certain basic concepts from new perspectives. As such, the concepts of education and learning have evolved beyond their conceptual dimensions into a process redefined by new developments in technology. Through the technological foundations it encompasses, e-learning eliminates the various distances between educational organizations and learning individuals, thus providing fast, economical and flexible learning opportunities. This situation reflects one of the newer perspectives in the information society. In this paper, the economic contributions of developing e-learning technologies for educational organizations are being discussed by the perspective of technology management.
