E-Learning: A Substitute for Classroom Learning?
E-learning is a method in which one learns through computers. It is the better way of utilizing technology in education. This is certainly a welcoming educational practise that saves time n avoids us from boring and lengthy timings of classroom learning. But. In this practise of learning, there will not be interactions among students, which leads to lack of communication. E-learning can only provide bookish knowledge but it does nothing to develop character of students, and no motivations are given. Through this e-learning, one can visualise the things easily as it picturizes everything but not al the students can understand everything easily. Only skiled n knowledged student understands everything. Then what about students of low standard?
Here comes the necesity of classroom teaching. In classroom teaching, a teacher understands the mentality, ability of students and teaches according to that! Moreover discipline, communication skills, relationship management, moral values etc can only learnt through classroom experiences.
Not that e-learning is bad but, it is better learning method for graduates rather than school students. Finally I want to conclude that e-learning should be added to classroom teaching but should not replace it.
