This is a very basic Data Model and does not reflect the sophistication of current e-Learning which are called Learning Management Systems, (LMS).
LMS includes Social Software and Second Life which offers a Virtual Learning Enviroment.
You can scroll down the page for a description of Learning Management Systems.
When I get time, I will extend this Data Model to cover LMS.

  • A Learning Management System (LMS) is software for delivering, tracking and managing training.
    LMSs range from systems for managing training records to software for distributing courses over the Internet and offering features for online collaboration.

    They provide registration of students, eg employees, for classroom and online courses. Student self-service (e.g., self-registration on instructor-led training), training workflow (e.g., user notification, manager approval, wait-list management), the provision of on-line learning (e.g., Computer-Based Training, read & understand), on-line assessment, management of continuous professional education (CPE), collaborative learning (e.g., application sharing, discussion threads), and training resource management (e.g., instructors, facilities, equipment), are dimensions to Learning Management Systems.

    LMSs are used by regulated industries (e.g. financial services and biopharma) for compliance training.
    Some LMS providers include "performance management systems," which encompass employee appraisals, competency management, skills-gap analysis, succession planning, and multi-rater assessments (i.e., 360 degree reviews).
    For the commercial market, some Learning and Performance Management Systems include recruitment and reward functionality.
