The World Health Organization (2006) defines eLearning as "The use of any electronic technology and media in support of learning”. However this means many different things to many people. The Dasman Diabetes Institute brand of eLearning is designed to develop a knowledge-based society in Kuwait targeting all age groups and to promote health awareness and healthy lifestyles. It may be delivered in the form of interactive eLearning modules or short clips, using communication tools such as educational videos, compact discs, online websites, online forums, and games.

The Dasman Diabetes Institute has already developed, and is continuing to develop, eLearning programs in different formats and languages on various health subjects and is accumulating an eLearning library. eLearning provides a medium to allow the introduction of health related matters into the school curriculum early in life, and the expectation is that it would help to mould attitudes in younger students and modify behaviour in older students.
