In approaching e-learning, two aspects are identified: (1) teaching and learning in class, and (2) self-learning platform after class, such as Moodle. In line with the former aspect, PowerPoint seems to be dominating in the entire process. An instructor serves as a presenter reading the contents of the slides and students being audience passively watching and listening to what the teacher is delivering, which is actually distorting the virtuality of teaching and learning. In my presentation, some cultural observations of e-teaching and learning circulated are identified and interpreted. Some useful references will also be forwarded so that we can be inspiring from such experiences in excelling our teaching competence.
