Accelerated Learning continues to grow in popularity, endorsed by learning gurus and orthodox educationalists alike. An area that has been underestimated by traditional designers of training is the emotional state of the learner, both during and preparing for learning. Good e-learning design should address the relationship between stress and learning. The brain chemistry of a positive state differs from that of one of fear or anger. Stressful environments cause the brain to downshift naturally. Eliminating excess stress, fear of failure and negativity all enhance receptivity. In turn learners come to realize that learning can be joyful and natural. The left and right brain hemispheres have distinct and different roles. The left side manages linguistic, logical and deductive functions. The right handles the emotions, intuition, visio-spatial orientation, music, art, imagery and pattern awareness. In the last two decades there has been a revolution in how e-learning has been perceived and defined.
