Hi friends,

E-Learning cannot replace classroom learning. It is something like that innovation in learning. E-Learning has so many advantages- Education is everywhere, Remotely accessible, Learning makes easy, Learning in your own way, No need of the tutor, Get a wide range of knowledge about a specific topic to name a few. On the other hand, Classroom Learning helps in so many ways- Easy to ask the doubts, an Instant solution of the doubts, Promotes collaborative learning, Enhance critical thinking skills, Improved social skills, Build organizational skills etc.

E-learning is good up to a certain extent.

It can't replace classroom studies but can help it to become more effective. In e-learning, our course is completed within the given time. Which sometimes not possible in the classroom.

This is the 21st century.

We have so much advantages- what we don't understand in our class, we can easily get information on that topic from videos or texts. Often, online videos are like invisible or virtual teachers who give us information on various topics in a rather lucid manner. We can gain a great deal of extra information and knowledge on a topic than we get from our textbooks. Most households in this generation own a PC. So, people instead of wasting time on games, can use their facilities for gaining knowledge through e-learning.

In my opinion, any well-developed technology cannot take the place of a teacher in a student's life. From childhood, it's our teachers who took care of us gave us basic knowledge, work hard with us. If in case smart board would have taught us that time we would have started calling your friend namely "Ajay" as "AJ" as per their pronunciation. It's good to have developments in education, learning methods and one must take full advantage of it but without forgetting our teachers. I know sometimes it is hard to understand what the teacher is teaching but on the hand, it is the teacher who keeps on motivating you to do well for your future.

E-learning is where students don't have to carry books and copies and everything is done or learnt online with the help of internet. In classroom learning, the case is opposite. Both types of learning have their on merits and demerits. In case of classroom learning, students have to incur the cost of books and copies but E learning reduces that cost and students don't have to carry the weight of books. But e-learning methods bring huge expenditure on the part of institution which is ultimately born by students in the form of higher fees. Also, many students are still not comfortable with learning without books. They want to hold books physically in their hands. Also, continuous use of computers may lead to some eye problems as it puts strain on eyes. So, e-learning cannot be a substitute for classroom learning which is far more effective than e learning.

E-learning which is running in the present world is a nice only to some extent. Like for example, a clever student can watch lessons which he missed by the process of e-learning but when we come to the weak student when he wants to learn through e-learning, he may get some doubts and he has to clarify that to understand the next word. And that clarification can't be done in e-learning.

I would like to highlight that since every child is different, there might be a case where the student does not understand the language or the way of teaching of the e-classroom. However, that's not the case in classroom learning wherein even if there are doubts they can be catered personally by the teacher and also if there is any problem in learning a topic, a solution to that may be found out by the teacher itself.

In my view, e-learning can't be substitute for classroom, because teaching cannot be effective without classroom but teachers should take advantage of existing technology for providing quality education. With the blending of technology and education learning becomes more easy, interesting and durable. Lessons converted into digital format and taught in classroom with proper interactions can enhance the learning.

Hello guys,

E-learning is a virtual learning program which is done by the electronics sources like a computer, laptop via the internet. Yes, definitely in this 21st-century e-learning has become a substitute for classroom learning, and it is playing an important role in our education system. It has many advantages:

- Your Schedule, Your Pace, Your Place.
- less fees in comparatively classroom program.
-no transportation charge.
-can attain our class from any location.
-can got the same quality of education from any organisation (example the student who could not get a chance for study from NIT and IIT they can also learn the same thing. ).
-environment-friendly (saves paper).
-introduction of animation and video make it more understandable.
-one teacher can teach a lot of student at a time.
Only the thing is student must be more disciplined and more focused.

Every coin has some pros and some cons, and definitely, also it has.

-it does not develop the inter personal skills.
-does not develop communication skills in the public.
-it is little bit distractable.
- required internet connection and electronic sources.
- all site does not provide a certificate of particular courses.

In spite of all the disadvantage, it is more beneficial for the student especially after launching of JIo. Hence it is one of the substitute for the classroom program.

Classroom teaching is far better than e-learning. In a classroom teaching. A student can be judged by the teacher individually and the weakest one also can be taken utmost care but in e-learning. It's not there.

Apart of this, In the classroom, a doubt can be clear at the same time which will pave the way for a good starting. But in e-learning. It's not there. One has to wait for the ending.

E-learning can be a assistance for the classroom teaching but it's not the replacement of it. So classroom teaching has the vast effect.

In my viewpoint, e-learning has positive and negative attribute both. Positive is that through this e-learning requirement of good, the knowledgeable faculty is less because one teacher can teach many students through the internet. Lack of good teacher is a major issue for India. Which can be fulfilled by the e-learning. NPTEL is one of the initiatives taken by the IISc and IITs.

Negative point is- In e-learning, the teacher is not aware of the level of student as in classroom program. For e-learning, the student uses a laptop, smartphone etc. Which causes more distraction towards social media.

YES, With e-learning a person can study at his own pace.

Since the curriculum is shown before the e-lectures commence, thus the person knows that he has a certain amount of task to be completed, so would be able to cover every aspect of it.

2nd most obvious reason would be Sickness.

If a person suffers from a prolonged sickness, she cannot attend classroom lectures.

Whereas there is no time boronation to e-learning she can complete pending work without missing any bit of it.

BESIDES, E-learning paves way for students /people who live in different spheres of the world to get teaching from worlds best teachers for ex. From IVY league colleges.

Also, Since E-learning is cheap compares to live classroom, this gives the weaker section of the globe access to education.

Yes, In my view beauty and brain both are important for a person.

It just like hardware and software of a system. Without h/w and s/w a system is nothing. So for us both are reflects our personality.

First I want to discuss beauty. Here beauty means I am not talking about looks or color complexion. Here beauty means your attitude, your behavior also reflects your beauty. And the second thing is a brain. God gives brain to every person. Some people utilize it perfectly. Brain helps us to gain knowledge. If you have the knowledge you are already beautiful.

I want to give you some example- Mr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam said once "I am not handsome but I will give my hand to someone in need.

You know about the beauty contest let's take an example like Miss world competition. In this competition, the winner is who have beauty with brain.

I saw a post on facebook few days ago people are trolling Miss Kenya 2017 who is the contestant of miss world contest because of colour complexion. I think it's not a good way to judge someone. If you have the power to attract someone with your knowledge. It means you are beautiful. You believe in yourself.

Hello friends, There is no doubt that classroom teaching is definitely a better way of education but it also depends on the different contexts. For example, For a country like India which is still struggling to produce good teachers and academicians despite its tremendous population, the e-learning platforms are solutions to it and it is only because NPTEL came into picture which has been a huge success although. It provides access to good teachers and great learning stuff to the remotest part of the country which is just a click away from the learner.

First of all, my opinion is that a combination of these two modes of teaching will tremendously help to improve the knowledge and learning capacity of the students.

Because some teachers always try to convey the whole subject as well as the basics.

And some other just teach them to how to pass the examination and bag more marks.

The second one is the majority.

In the class room learning, if a student has a doubt in some portions of lecture, he can immediately ask the teacher to solve it.

And if the teacher is good enough the doubt will be cleared as well as a little bit of communication skills will get improved.

If the same happens in case of e- learning, the student have to observe the hole things many times to solve it. Sometimes it remains unsolved. So for the subjects taken by a good teacher, it must be learned from a class and the ones which are boring can be learned through the e learning process.

So that a student can improve the knowledge, communication skills, and can make the process of studying stress free.

A.Nagaranjitha said: (Sep 1, 2017)  
Hai friends,

In my opinion, class room teaching is better, because in a classroom a student can have a time and freedom to ask doubts or questions to a teacher. In a classroom, if one cannot understand the topic they have a chance to ask their friends and share their thoughts. In e-learning we just follow the things said by a lecture in the video, we should not think of it.

In classroom teaching sometimes a teacher may also share his/her experiences about a particular topic.

In a classroom, all students are emotionally connected to each other and easily they can discuss and grasp the topic in their own style. Classroom teaching leads to raising many doubts about the topic, in this way both teacher and students can get some knowledge about a topic. Students have competition among them, so they can compete for each other any they can get to know about competition in the world.

So I think classroom learning is better for education.

Thank you guys.

Hai friends. In my point of view, the classroom teaching is the best way of teaching when compared to the extent learning. Because a can explain the subject in the manner of understanding of the lower class students also and he observes that all the students are able to understand or not then he changes the method of explanation. Then all are will gain good subject. And the teacher can explain in a useful manner to all stages of minds which are present in the classroom. That's why I am supporting the classroom teaching and my suggestion is that the e-learning with the presence of teacher's explanation is the best way to learn.

Hello everyone,

I really support this idea that e-learning is a good substitute for classroom learning, since the students who live poles apart from good institutions face problems for transportation which is also time consuming. So, e-learning can convert this travelling time into study time. One of the biggest advantages of e-learning is that the phenomenal concepts can be visualized into motion which prove to provide a better understanding among students. It is also beneficial for the teachers because sometimes they too find it challenging to explain and make students understand some hard concepts that require deep imagination. But e-learning makes it simple. Hence e-learning is a better substitute for classroom learning.

In my point of view, E-learning is good for only some cases like if you are not getting good teacher nearby or you have a job then E-learning can be a good option for you and also if you want some extra knowledge beyond your academics.

Otherwise the conventional method in the best way of learning because in this we get some extra things like if a person is questioning something then we learn how to think advanced and also conventional method also gives some behavioral knowledge that is very necessary for kids and if we got bored in class then teacher can understand our feeling and either he gives us another method to that problem or make some joke so that class environment become good and also in E-learning method there are some health issues also like eyes get affected and we can't get instant solution to our problem and as it is human nature we require some external force to do our work so in class room study teacher also force us to do study at home and that is very necessary atleast upto age of 16 buddies as they are not enough mature.

My contribution towards this is that since learning is a process of acquiring knowledge or some thing. It's at a larger extent that the world is running into modernity where people will be served by robots with time to come. The characteristic of these robots is that they are computers in nature that evolved as means of technology. This means that e-learning has improved people's modes of education in that we have the bachelors, masters, and Ph.D. being conducted through e-learning. It's also reducing the distance and transport costs of far away institutions. The e-learning programs have got many people of different races from different continents sharing knowledge in accordance with their view of content, it can minimize congestion in a classroom. Furthermore, e-learning is both teacher centered and student centered which enables the movement of knowledge from the higher level (teacher) to the lower level (student), thank you.

But e-learning is a major defect for kids, scientists said that under age 10 kids have high grasping power. If kids start E-learning at this age it effects their mind, and also lost thinking attitude,

Hi friends,

I want to add something to this discussion that As a coin has two sides, E-learning as a substitute for classroom learning has also two sides.

Advantages:

-> Anyone can learn anything from anywhere & at any time.

-> By doing E-learning, there is no expense of travel, coaching fees, hostel fees, etc.

-> In today's digital world, a very famous social networking site YouTube is providing many learning videos. So that, anything like learning, cooking, dancing, machine handling, art & craft, or any kind of stuff can be learnt from it.

-> E-learning is more flexible because it can be done in short chunk of time that can fit around your daily schedule.

-> There are many sites providing content explanation like Wikipedia, Tutorialspoint, etc. So it makes learning easy.

-> 3D images can be easily visualized.

Disadvantages:

-> Everyone may not have access to the internet at lower rate.

-> There are many courses available on-line. But they are providing video lectures so that those people having broadband connection or higher bandwidth connection can only view video without interruption.

-> There is no interaction between teacher and student, so doubts can't be solved at that point of time. As well as teachers are not known whether the student has understood it properly or not.

-> Students must have learning approach, otherwise he/she can't learn anything. As well as Everyone may not be comfortable with E-learning, they can't understand it by themselves.

-> Student's skills like discipline, morality, human values, respecting elders, friendliness, brotherhood and many other skills can't be developed.

-> It reduces the employment opportunities as teachers will be replaced by computers.

Finally, I conclude that E-learning with combination of the classroom is better for students so that it can help in all round development of students. And also E-learning is the best way for those people who have some doubts for handling new things or making new things, and also for those who are exciting to get out of the box learning.

E-learning has both advantages and disadvantages. If we say of 'Deforestation' and 'Paper wastage', it is an advantage, but if we say of respect, then it is a disadvantage.

ADVANTAGES:

Books are made from paper. The paper is obtained from trees. Trees are planted by humans or naturally. Humans get an education from books.

(1) The advantage in this aspect is that E-learning is effective on the understanding skills of a child. The understanding skills will improve as if we see the book, it has very long paragraphs that irritate the minds of children and their desire slowly decreases. Some children see it as a burden on them. They think that their studies are very difficult and boring. With this in mind, they don't learn it, instead, they ratty it. Today is a day where knowledge is not about learning new things, but it is about getting good marks.

(2) The 2nd advantage is that the children wear very heavy bags on their shoulders which are not good for health. Earlier, at the time of my grandfather's school years, he just brought a slate, book and chalk which is very amazing as in my father's school years, he wore a heavy bag. If E-learning is established, then it will have an effect on the weight of the bags. In fact, if E-learning is practiced, then we don't even need a bag. We just need a bottle, tab, tiffin and a thing that we need like a hand sanitizer.

DISADVANTAGES:

(1) The disadvantages of E-learning is that there are very large scale book brands like Saraswati, NCERT, etc which will vanish from the society after this concept. Billions of people work in the factories, offices, etc just to earn money and live their lives easily but if the E-learning concept enters the society, these giants will be eradicated. Where will they find new jobs? If 50% of them find then what about the leftover?

(2) The 2nd disadvantage is that the tabs are very sensitive and can break if it falls. This is the most horrifying point as if a child breaks the tab, he would have to buy a new one and slowly the materials used in the making of the tab will reduce and will lead to the scarcity of those certain materials.

In my view, everything has both advantages and disadvantages. Choosing e-learning or classroom learning depends on the individuals because those who are sharp, talented and enthusiastic they will learn a lot through e-learning but normal students cannot have that much ability to understand the content and stuff. They need someone to explain it but through e-learning, there is no face to face interaction. Poor students also unable to access this e-learning.

But an overall development like discipline, morality, human values, respecting elders, other genders, friendliness, brotherhood, and many others skills like communication skills, intrapersonal, interpersonal skills, activeness, punctuality, how to make decisions, hope to manage the team and also we get many experiences through class learning. We can get practical experiences. Teachers give many suggestions which are very useful. We can develop good character by taking inspiration from good persons around us. It also gives us sweet memories which we cannot forget throughout our life.

We can get good friends here. We can learn how to face problems in life bravely and many things.

Finally, I conclude that e-learning with the combination of the classroom is better for students so that it can help in all round development of students.

In comparing e-learning and classroom options college students need to recognize their own learning styles and needs relative to these two formats. Students who struggle with technology, need regular interaction with professors and peers, and lack self-discipline and accountability may need a more traditional structure. Working adults who need flexibility and possess strong technology skills, prefer to learn from the comforts of home, and have the discipline to schedule reading, work and assignments may benefit from e-learning opportunities.

I think classroom program + e-learning can become effective for both lower and higher class students.

AS through classroom program one can learn knowledge along with ethical values but this not possible in e-learning classes.

Wherein e-learning classes along with knowledge one can sharpen their minds as there is no one to teach each and every point i.e. not under stable to you.

At last, I want to say both should be used for overall development.

It is not possible that the Internet is available at every place and also, We must have the proper knowledge about the computer system. As compare to E-learning student would like to prefer a teacher in the classroom because of face-to-face communication.

Also, online learning is not suitable for all students. As every coin has two sides that the E-learning and Classroom learning have some advantages and disadvantages also. It depends on upon the learner status, capacity to understand and self-motivation.

I think classroom learning is the first part of our life and after that e-learning. Being a human we have 6 sense and one most important sense is touch sense, this sense helps us to remember things like any answer of a question for a better way and for a long time, and this writing environment only can create in classroom, but the major disadvantages of classroom learning is that most of the schools (their teachers) using chowk and duster which is very harmful to teachers and students too. So finally I conclude that classroom learning is for lower standard students and e-learning is for higher standard students.

Hai friends! I want to share my view on this topic.

In my view, everything has both advantages and disadvantages. Choosing e-learning or classroom learning depends on the individuals because those who are sharp, talented and enthusiastic they will learn a lot through e-learning but normal students cannot have that much ability to understand the content and stuff. They need someone to explain it but through e-learning, there is no face to face interaction. Poor students also unable to access this e-learning.

But an overall development like discipline, morality, human values, respecting elders, other genders, friendliness, brotherhood, and many others skills like communication skills, intra personal, inter personal skills, activeness, punctuality, how to make decisions, hoe to manage the team and also we get many experiences through class learning. We can get practical experiences. Teachers give many suggestions which are very useful. We can develop good character by taking inspiration from good persons around us. It also gives us sweet memories which we cannot forget throughout our life.

We can get good friends here. We can learn how to face problems in life bravely and many things.

Finally, I conclude that e-learning with the combination of the classroom is better for students so that it can help in all round development of students.

Hello friends,

As this discussion, I agree with all friends. E-learning is most important for any person life. They give advantage as well as disadvantage. The advantage is that to save the tree, also save money and time. For this learning, we can find any information about any place, person, plant, village etc. Everything that we need and give knowledge within few second. But disadvantage that for this learning human are lazy, they are not self-dependent. Every person dependent on the Internet.

Disadvantages:

-> Internet is not accessible everywhere.

-> It will reduce the employment opportunities as teachers will be replaced by computers.

-> There are pre-recorded lectures so doubt session is not taken simultaneously.

-> There are always some network connectivity problems. So e-learning can not be used as a substitute till free flow of network is ensured.

-> More electric power will be consumed as it is required for the operation of computers.

-> Practical knowledge can be imparted in lab and not online.

Advantages:

-> No need to go to schools or colleges. We can attend the classes while sitting at home.

-> 3-D images can be easily visualized.

Hi, everyone.

I am going to add some points to this discussion.

Today is the world of Internet. Whether someone has something to eat or not but he will have Internet for sure. And during this time e-learning is the best way to learn anything at anytime at anywhere. I want to tell you some points in favor of e-learning.

1) The most important thing is we can save trees by saving paper.

So, we can have a better environment.

2) Take an example like if a teacher wants to teach about 3D, then he will not able to show it on board. But by images, the students can able to realize it.

3) If an aged person has the interest to learn anything, he need not join any Institute. He can have it by this.

4) The rural area students can get better stuff of learning if they want.

Due to all these advantages, we should go for e-learning.

Thank you.

I would like to stress upon the fact that People are used to learning in their native languages in their initial years and are comfortable in their own surroundings with their own friends. Consider a rural place in India. Villagers in that place will have their own mindsets, traditions and dialect. We can not bring them to a common platform because they are not advanced enough. They need people from their own community who can understand them. Suppose, for an example, You are showing a video of an airplane and explaining concepts based on that video. If the students have never seen an airplane in their life, they won't be able to relate it to their life or understand the underlying principle. Teachers are not just guides, they are people responsible for understanding the child psychology and help them in infinite ways. We can't achieve it all using e-learning.

Hello,

What do we learn in a classroom and what do we learn from e-learning are totally different from each other. In a classroom we not only get the knowledge of the subject but we learn about being a leader, how to manage a team, to make friends, to resolve problems, activeness, punctuality and many out of the books qualities. We cannot learn these by simply watching a video and seeing a presentation. By watching a video we can understand what we have seen but we cannot experience the same, through classroom we have a practical aspect of learning. Making e-learning a substitute for classroom makes students to be lazy and to be know-it-all kind.

E-learning can be used along with classroom learning to learn in a easier and faster way. We can also be updated to the technological growth through e-learning. Hence it has its own way to be involved in classroom.

Hello everyone, I am Mounika Rayaprolu. This is a quite interesting topic. Everything in this world has two sides of a coin. In the E-learning process, there are advantages as well as disadvantages.

Coming to the advantages, it saves the time, helps to learn whenever we want, through visualization one can easily remember or understand the content, etc.

Talking about the disadvantages, the E-learning cannot be a substitute for class learning. For instance, if we buy a book of learning English in 30 days and started practicing it we will definitely learn something but that knowledge doesn't get equal to that knowledge learnt in classrooms. Apart of that classroom creates an environment where there will be distributing of knowledge but also interaction of relations with one another that enhances the strength of student.

So E-learning is helpful but can't have competed with classroom learning

So e-learning in schools and colleges very important to improve the speed and accuracy we can want to update our classrooms.

It is also an using an chalk is difficult to the teachers and waste of an papers. To produce an paper we can using an trees so the collapsing of an trees gives an pollution and increase an global warming.

Hi guys,

Lets start with cons and end with pros this is my opinion if you like it or not feel free to express your views by clicking like or dislike button.

Cons :

1) It can't teach morals, ethics, being punctual.

2) It can't reach the level of understanding as that of in class room teaching.

3) It can be only used if class room teaching is not efficient.

Pros :

1) For rural people class room teaching may or may not be good there we can use this.

2) This can be used for referential purpose and research driven people.

3) We can access vast education in less economic cost in home or where ever you want.

4) Multiple videos are available if one wasn't understandable we can go for another video.

Summary :

Where there are no trees the Azadirachta Indica is the biggest tree so if no good class room teaching or access to education then only E-learning is efficient.

If I think from economic point of view then India is not a rich or developed country like USA it is developing country where people are employed in different fields with minimum salaries.

I am not against classroom learning as it is traditional method of teaching, where a students are taught by teacher sitting in a room called class. As the technology has developed now so much that we can study online also but we also need a teacher a guide who can help in our difficulties, who make students learn about good and bad things, who teaches students how to think how to learn.

E-learning can be used as a guide. Students can take help from that, read from that and can ask doubts from the teachers. Internet has made our life very easy. Now one can easily socialize with their teachers through social media sites such as Facebook, g mail etc.

Many people disagree with this concept of E-learning as they think it has many disadvantages. Yes there may be. But it all depend on the student who want to study. There are many students who score low marks under classroom studying. It's all in the mind of the student who want to study or not. In the end I would like to say that classroom learning and e-learning go hand in hand. They both compliment each other. And schools should focus on both equally and make students gain knowledge from everywhere.

But, classroom learning I think it is a practical knowledge because someone was explained what they knew. So many people said school days were very good. Because they were enjoyed their studies with friends. Those are most memorable moments in our life. But according to education point of view we can save our time or we can give so much information about that topic. But, some are very interested to explaining from others, according to that they were easily understanding the situation.
