The main and one of the curriculum or prospectus goals of e-learning in school edification is to cultivate apprentices for 21st century aptitudes through their consistently erudition works out. From previous studies in the related fields demonstrates that K-12 schools should take in e-learning sense of how to extend learning odds of apprentices/students for the change of 21st century aptitudes. Six examination problems vital for e-learning in school education has been perceived, to be particular the affirmation of making 21st century aptitudes of apprentices; the traverse or bridging of the gap/breach between instructive modules in school and circumstances in general society eye; the enhancement of learning prospects in the learning development; the amassing of evidence of progress and constructing cognizance of headway; the evaluation of 21st century capacities; and the acquisition of educator transformation for enculturating learners to make 21st century capacities and aptitudes. Several other authors applaud the huge accomplices across over different countries to ponder strategies on the target setting of curriculum or instructive projects tending to 21st century aptitudes revolution and associating fissure amidst society and school; on the convenience of ICT for school edification; on the security concerns of learning data in e-learning process; and on the pre-service or in-service educator/instructor progression. In this paper we discuss the investigation concerns and strategy insinuations or suggestions essential for realizing such an instructive projects objective.
