The eLearning classes aren't easier, but the online structure makes it easier for the students to study around their work schedule.

A student doesn't have to be extremely tech-savvy, but he or she must have proper software training, as listed: familiarity with Adobe documents, saving Word documents, and watching video lectures, etc.
