This paper gives an overview of the skills that are necessary in our century and provides a hypothesis that a dynamic and self-regulated e-learning system can help reach the same learning outcomes as the means of traditional classroom training. The paper emphasises the role of analogical thinking within the context of 21st century learning. It is also argued that effective e-learning comprises of individual learning, learning by collaboration, and learning in a real world environment which motivates learners to use e-learning materials independently, and, at the same time, provides a dynamic and collaborative learning process. Two case studies provide practical examples for proving the viewpoint that e-learning can provide successful learning outcomes if specific factors are taken into account.
