Abstract


UNESCO has designed the education concept through the EFA movement; thus, the SDGs can be achieved optimally. This movement is expected to create quality education that can be reached by all people, mainly to whom live in villages far from big cities. The effort to equalize education must be supported by recent technology, especially since the penetration of technology into various fields had been introduced simultaneously. E-learning has many benefits, and it can support wide-scale learning. The e-learning concept in Indonesia has been adopted through a digital platform, namely Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). There are various publications related to e-learning application for formal education, while the discussion of e-learning for non-formal education is still limited and has not much explored. Following are the results of this literature study (1) e-learning is a digital-based learning tool that has been implemented in most of the universities and higher educations; (2) e-learning application for society cannot be realized because there are many problems (such as low technical skill of the society, so they have difficulty in accessing technology and the facilities support have not been distributed well. Hence it can not be reached massively by the society), resulting the technology utilization for training or counseling have not been implemented optimally yet; and (3) MOOCs are part of e-learning that can be employed by everyone, not only for academics but also for the general public, providing various features like formal education.
