In the previous installment I externalized the adverse effects that hyperlinks have on our cognitive development, the focus was based on the impact that this form of accessing information has on our ability to concentrate and increase our cognitive development.
In this sense, although this type of technology limits direct interaction with the medium, fundamentally because this way of accessing knowledge is through links or digital links, which subsequently display electronic documents that have been previously hosted on certain web pages, without any interaction that facilitates the organization and structuring of knowledge.

That said, it is also worth mentioning that there are tools on the Internet that provide access to the construction, reasoning and interaction with the environment, among these the most prominent are electronic learning platforms or E-learning as they are usually identified to the portals or virtual learning campuses under models of distance education and training via online.
E-learning platforms, unlike search engines or hyperlinks, have the advantage of promoting interaction between teachers and students through the so-called virtual classrooms, which are tactical spaces mounted on web pages that allow the exchange of knowledge, assignment of activities, execution of virtual evaluations, and exposure of content.

If browsing through search engines on the web to access hyperlinks that point to information that does not directly impact our cognitive capacity, e-learning through E-learning portals on the other hand is a resource that combines the power of the internet with meaningful learning, through E-learning platforms that provide constant interaction that tends to increase the pace of learning.
