It depends! In many ways yes a digital learning specialist is a close fit for an instructional specialist. An instructional specialist can either design for the digital world or the non-digital world or both. As the title states, the Instructional specialist's focus is instruction and the presentation of the materials. A Digital learning specialist is focused on providing materials so that the children can learn in a digital environment. They do work with the teacher to determine instructional strategies in order to determine the best way to present the materials so that children can learn in a digital world.

I disagree, eLearning has the same focus as if they were in a brick-and-mortar school. However, I know people feel that e-learning education is "more fun" than brick and mortar. Again I disagree because e-learning has different types of activities and (in my opinion) more planning is involved. This form of learning is designed to create online communication between the teacher and the student. Many schools are now using eLearning in order to complement the learning that's done in the classroom.
