Difference between 'touch' & 'e-learning'

Touch: This can be downloaded to a tablet or smart phone where you can read through the learning materials, watch videos, fill out your knowledge reviews and even take quizzes offline, then 'hand in' your homework and quizzes when you are online again. 

E-Learning: This must be done from a computer or device with internet access as this does not have an offline option.
