Greetings to all,

E - learning or virtual learning is a substitute for classroom learning. But it is not that much effective because students are more active and responsive in classes. Most of the students can't afford for the gadgets such as smart phones, laptop which are basic requirements of e-learning. E- learning also lacks the physical exercises which is necessary for the students. Combination of e-learning and classroom learning can be used. However classroom learning is more better.

Greetings for everyone.

We barely know about this e-learning before covid. During covid times almost all students were introduced to e-learning. This online platforms for studying will be useful for those who cannot step out due to various reasons, for the students who are taking coachings along with academics as well, during pandemics such as covid it will help us a lot and these platforms helped our education system not to fall behind.

But for children physical classes are suggested as they will learn more in physical classes and this will develop more skills like communication and will need practical sessions for physics, chemistry and industrial projects. Extra curricular activities are required for students which should be physical. We can learn more when we do projects physically.

Hello! Everyone.

I agree e-learning is good. But only in rare cases or in difficult situations. But physical education is much better than e-learning and takes many things to our experience guide with also takes a positive approach. And one of the most things is e-learning does not give us a real attachment to education.

Hello friends,

E-learning is basically time-saving, the convenient option of education. But, I don't think so it is 100% good for students' healthy and knowlegdable future because there are many advantages as well as disadvantages of e-learning. Like lack of discipline, and lack of eagerness. Everything is far away from just one click so very few students genuinely try to find answers of assignments or homework. E-learning is beneficial for only IT students but for others fieldwork is neccesary. E-learning gives us knowledge but for implementation, we all need a physical classroom.

E-learning is good but at somepoint physical education is also most important. Because without physical education no one can become Milkha Singh, Neeraj Chopra. The most important point there is multiple major issues of networking while e-class, e-exam. Students get stressed due to those network issues sometime student is not able to recollect answers despite doing the study. . E-learning is one of the options not a substitution.

Yes, e-learning a substitute for class learning. Online classes is much better than offline class because my opinion students interact with teachers, improve communication skills. In online classes,so many problems to face due to internet services.

Hello everyone.

Here is giving one of the best advantages of E-learning, this point will increase your selection chances in group discussion.

For example, someone is working in an MNC company and he is working in the Indian branch,

If there is a meeting in head office it is located in the US, we can complete our meeting through zoom, google meet. Etc.

This will save our travel expense as well as time.

Yes, absolutely e-learning is a substitute for classroom learning.

During a pandemic, this e-learning holds the students to attach to their studies and to learn nd complete their respective academic years without any delay.

And we have to accept it gives negative impact also on students like addiction to electronic gadgets even more than before.

But the most advantage of this e-learning is we can clarify our doubts and revise the completed lectures at any time by seeing the recorded videos.

It will be more helpful if the people in village areas also get these e-learning benefits.

Hello folks,

As per my opinion, E-learning is only a substitute for classroom learning. There is no alternative to Classroom study at that time. Here I am sharing my views related to this topic.


1) At that moment we all are facing a covid-19 pandemic all over India. Everything has been closed due to this virus so it is impossible for students to go their school and do proper classroom study. So all the classroom study shifted to E-learning study.

2) By E-learning there is no need to go to school, classes, etc you can get everything via different platforms like zoom, google classroom, etc.

3) By E-learning would be better for those who live in villages and backward areas because they do not need to move anywhere, they can get an education at their home safely.

4) E-learning gives you the benefit to complete your education anywhere in the world.

5) E-learning is cheaper in comparison to classroom study.

6) E-learning process is one the finest thing in this time, 20 years back there is no internet facility no apps no platform for study so that time it was very difficult for a student to complete their course.


1) As per my view e-learning is not a permanent solution for study. It would be only a substitute. Being a teacher I know very well that student can not give their 100% focus and determination in the E-learning study.

2) On these platforms you get lots of options like turn off your mic, turn off your camera etc so some not interested students are taking the benefits of these things. They just turn off their camera and disappear from the class.

3) Students have to sit for a long time in front of the screen so it would be chances that they lose their eyesight to continue using.

4) E-learning is just an option, not a permanent solution we can not stop the learning process of the students so we are on that.

5) In classroom study, faculty can focus on every student who is sitting in the classroom and can also ask his/her doubts in a class.

So, the conclusion is that E-learning is not an appropriate solution of classroom study it's just a substitute.

The topic which has been given is very serious and important. Due to the pandemic situation, We all waste our precious time without learning. So E-learning is the online mode lectures which help us to learn from home. E-learning also benefits such that recorded lectures If any doubts we see the lectures any time. In traditional learning, this is one of the drawbacks. E-learning is important but it is necessary to survey the rural region's students also to evaluate they have all necessities or not.
