Hello friends.

Nowadays everyone knows about technology. People learn concepts easily by using digital education. Moreover in our country lack of government teachers in rural areas if we introduce digital education in villages they will get advantages. Further, more digital education provides animation and working of the different equipment. From this videos, each and every student understands the concepts very clearly. On the other hand, traditional education has its own benefits. In traditional education students have a chance to ask their doubts at that time only and doubts will get clarified instantaneously. When the teacher says students listen carefully.

Hi ! friends hope you all doing well. I agree with this digital education system instead of the traditional system because of some following points are given below.

1. First of all, it's very "TIME CONSUMING" because if you have an internet connection and a smartphone then you can search your problem and google gives you your exact solution as well as related solution. Its cool you know.

2. Secondly its very "USER-FRIENDLY "because you can access the internet and get your result wherever you are throughout the world. But in case of traditional education teacher may not be available in this particular time for help but it can possible in digital education as I have said in previous point.

3. Thirdly my point is "CLEAR CONCEPT".

It means as the name suggested "TRADITIONAL"leads to clear concept. But it will be overcome by digital education. If you search a full course about a specific topic and then you can get easily.

And most interesting fact is in traditional education you may come under 1 or 2 or max 3 teachers in order to solve your problem but in traditional education I mean to say in "YOU TUBE" you can learn regarding the same problem from numerous videos of individual teachers (10 teachers approax).

4. We all know that no one can exist in this world with purity of 100%. Every system has some merits and demerits. You can take a demerit of a digital system as you can not make a one to one communicate with the teacher when you access "you tube" but it can possible in case of an online conference.

At last, I would like to say now we are in a digital world and we have to keep updated ourselves and for that, we can not depend on traditional education. Now we want more in less time which is possible in traditional education system. That's all. THANK YOU.

I think both the ways has a unique advantages as well as disadvantages.

In digital education we learn things whenever we want like me I like to study in night time so it is very much useful for me and cost of eductaion is also less compared to offline.

In offline education we have direct interaction with teachers it enable to ask douts at a time.

And it helps to meet new peoples and we share our opinions to colleagues and we also learn more things from them.

Yes, from my point of view, digital education has taken over the traditional education system and it is valid enough. It has been most beneficial to the poor students, it has proved to be a lucrative deal for them as a very negligible cost, the poor students are able to obtain a quality education. I said the cost negligible because the cost of internet packs in our mobile phones is really negligible in front of the school fees which we have to pay.

Also, if someone is interested in taking distance education from a university of his/her choice, then sitting at home, he/she can apply for the course, pay for it online and learn the same thing digitally which some of the students are learning there physically. And sometimes it also happens that the universities provide discounts on their fee structures only on their digital learning programs, that proves to be another advantage.

In this case, a student is not bound to any kind of time table if he/she is learning from you tube or similar sites as the concerned may visit the site and attend the lectures any time and from the point where he/she dropped it. This gives one more advantage that the student here has many choices like the faculty which is teaching, the language in which the lecture is being delivered, content, etc. This allows the student to take quality education. And it is fact that a human mind is more responsive to videos rather than looking at the same faculty daily in the same classroom. Here comes the another advantage, digital education is mobile education, i.e. you are not bound to a particular place which helps to keep your mind fresh. Also as compared to traditional system of education, digital education will always offer you ALL THE LATEST facts and figures which is not possible for a faculty in classroom or a book.

But, as we all know that a coin has two faces. So there are also some pros of traditional education like it helps us to improve our presentation skills, it keeps our life disciplined, it enhances our listening skills, grasping power and attentiveness. But these few pros of the traditional education system and the same few cons of digital education cannot dominate those many advantages of digital education. So, digital education has taken over the traditional educational system.

Friends here we should know about the question that what it is trying to say.

Friends according to me, the digital education has overtaken the traditional education because nowadays most of the students in their school can't maintain their study due to many reasons like environment around them but at home, they can learn by YouTube and many other applications and can save their costly time.

They also can clear their confusion by seeing the video again but in traditional education now a days teachers become irritate and scold the students and students become scared and due to this terror students.

Never ask his teacher about his/her other problems. Due to which confusion cannot be cleared which is very harmful for them and that can spoil their whole life.

According to me, the Digital education is better than traditional education because of digital classes students can understand the topics very easily and he/she remember the topic for longer period and its smart way to connect students giving proper knowledge, suppose we can take an example of movies or any sports people are paying more attention to them because it goes deep to their mind.

So, according to me, its a very good to encourage digital era and its very beneficial to students in the present situation.

It has many benefits it develops more interest towards the topic you learning about it upgrades your skills and make you more innovative. Whether the traditional can help you in that manner to make you more active and you can use your own thoughts and willpower to education.

Its enhances the understanding power of students. Most advantage is that Students can relate to the practical Life.

In my opinion, it is to say that digital education has taken over traditional education is no much meaningful.

We can say that digital education enhances the practical knowledge of traditional education, it makes more effective.

In modern times via digital education we get every knowledge via online search engine eg google, you tube video but also there is some contradiction in different videos from which we get some confusion there is a need of traditional education, apart from that digital education helpful for gaining more knowledge, doing some projects online.

So making digital education more effective we.

Should take help via traditional education whenever needed such as making interaction with tutors, seniors to transfer knowledge.

Apart from that, there is a need for tutors having good knowledge of technology tools which is helpful for the area where people are no much familiar with these tools and their benefits.

So we conclude that by the riding of traditional education we make digital education more effective in practical manners for general people.

According to me, as everything in the world has two phases, in the same way, digital and traditional education has two phases.

In favour to digital study:

1. One can study any where at any time.
2. We can have updated information very soon comparing to offline.
3. It is a own learning process.
4. Do course at University level without going there.

In favour to traditional education:

1. We can increase presentation skills by class.
2. We can know how to behave with colleagues and superiors.


I would like to conclude that digital education cannot be a substitute for classroom learning up to graduation level. If a person has more interest on the online education they can do well but if they have no interest a person must be there to create interest in him by general example and to make them study, that is possible only with the classroom.

Digital Education has taken over the Traditional education in a bigger way. In the olden days the only source of knowledge was through books. But it was quite difficult for the common man to know about books where in which they can find the knowledge they want. If somehow they get to know about the book it still difficult to find the market where in which he can buy the book. Even if he could able to find out a shop in which the book is available it is difficult for the common man to bear the cost of the purchase. This was the traditional system. But with the advent of Internet things had changed upside down. Now every knowledge is at the our finger tips. Every problem of the traditional education system is overcomed. If we have the quest for knowledge then the world is open for us. No limit to attaining knowledge.

I can not deny this fact that digital has taken over traditional education completely. But we should make sure what is necessary for our student. If a student uses it in the correct way then no doubt it is more effective for them but someone is always there to tell them that what's the wrong & right. We see in very small age child fond of mobile and other digital stuff but it is not right, their parent must take care of them.

In traditional education, we use to learn about only the part of a work but in modern technology, we use to learn and gather the whole origin of those work. Because of the modern education, we use to gain knowledge by studying and also working on them. Due to modern technology, we gathered much knowledge and also gather the knowledge in the practical side while practising them on day to day in the educational life. So, I use to support digital education because it has more benefits.

Digital learning is a combination of Technology, Digital content and Instruction. Technology is how student receive the content. It consists of hardware and internet access device that can vary from a laptop to a desktop to ipad to a smartphone. Content is what student learn. It is high quality digital academic material that is delivered to the student. It ranges from new engaging interactive and adaptive software to classic video lectures. Technology may change the role of a teacher but it will never eliminate the need of teacher. With digital learning teachers can provide personalized guidance and ensure that student can stay on track. Digital learning gives students element of control over pace, time, place and path.

Speaking of digital education it means education through a means of technology it is a great reform in recent scenario and it has really changed the way students used to learn as the two main points to be considered are i.e. it tends to be much cheaper and secondly student can learn at his own pace but leaving these benefits behind it can really affect the health of students like eyesight issues, so should some constraints be there like age, Maybe it benefits lead the way but there are some factors which may lead to a few limitations.

Digital education refers to a method of providing education by means of technology. As clearly seen, the idea of digital education has taken off in many parts of our country. As compared to the traditional education system it allows students to interact with their course in a better and interesting manner. In schools, the smart classes have successfully replaced the blackboards as they provide a proper explanation in a creative manner with the help of large no. Of illustrations which are in a limited amount in books. Along with this are the distant learning courses which have allowed students to have access to the best of the courses from their home. Also, the students can get their doubts cleared efficiently by consulting other students/faculties online.

Eventually, digital education has also proved to be a lucrative deal for poor students as they do not need to pay heavy fees to study as there are no Of education portals running online like SWAYAM/NPTEL which has been initiated by the government for the welfare of students. The students need not be dependent only on books as all the courses are available free of cost online, thus we can conclude that digital communication has fairly taken over the traditional education system.

Now as we take an another example in this platform many people giving or posting their views over many topics as assuming real platform this also a digital education.

No, Traditional education still exists. Imparting of digital education can be seen mainly in cities and a few schools and colleges of small towns. Schools in most of the towns and villages still give traditional education. This is because of poor electricity connection in those areas and no internet connection. Also, for imparting digital education, skilled teachers are required who have basic knowledge about technology But in those areas, such teachers are not available or present. So, Digital education is still on its way and traditional education is also prevalent yet.

I think digital education has lot impact on current education system in all over the world. However one must note that we must not ignore our traditional system of education because in the grass root level like students those are primary school level for them still traditional system of education is required because it has one to one interaction i.e. between teachers and students. Traditional education system not only teach subjects to kids but also it teaches them how to become good human being how they must respect their parents teachers seniors, all these won't be there in digital education system. So the conclusion is that both the system should complement each other for betterment of society and not only individual upgrades.

Hello everyone!

Agreed to the point, that surrounding and environment created by traditional education can't be created by digital education but it has a condition when the teacher who is teaching has an attractive way of teaching otherwise no one will find interest in the lectures and the process will become burden despite learning.

Whereas on digital platforms we have different options one can choose as per his/her likings.

Nowadays digital education is becoming more attractive as 3D animation and other stuff is making it more attention gaining which ultimately leads to the real learning.

Good morning everyone.

In my point of view, the digital education is one of the upcoming technologies which will benefit us in near future. Most of the college students may find it difficult to understand all of the things taught in the class. So they prefer video lectures on YouTube and other websites and find that more fruitful. So presently digital education has a big impact in education system which I find very helpful for educating India.

But it doesn't mean that it will diminish the traditional education procedure because we all know school and college is the root key and home for students, and the teacher student consultation is not present in case of digital education.

In a nutshell, traditional education is always required and digital education will help all the education process to become more effective for educating all the people.

Hello everyone,

I believe evolution of technology as well as human beings goes hand in hand. With the advancements in new technology and affordability people have become more aware of what's happening all around the globe. With the introduction of tutorials in youtube from various sources and courses like moocs students rely more on online courses rather than classroom as because they get to select their instructor from various other instructors and in case of any doubt they can easily discuss in with their instructors in the discussion forum, which majority of the students avoid due to the fear of being made fun of by their friends, which I personally strongly resent. Other major factors that contributes are that the courses are self-paced and most of them are free of cost. So anyone can access the materials anywhere and with numerous options in the internet students can switch from one website to another according to their preferance and understandability.

Hello everyone,

I am glad that we are discussing on the topic whether digital education has taken over traditional education. According to my point of view productive change must be there rather only change. Traditional education has its own advantages and disadvantages and same is with digital education. Traditional education makes class more interactive and interesting, students can clear their doubts then and there, can also meet the faculty outside and discuss their problems sometimes more information can also be gathered related to the topic. While disadvantages are it's not the smart way of learning things in the present rate of developing scenario, students are not inculcated with the practical knowledge. On the other hand, Digital education helps students to inculcate effective self-learning skills, minimizes the time to learn a single topic. For example Foreign countries prefer digital learning they don't read books all night before exams and vomit out the next day. Practical based knowledge is more important than bookish knowledge.

Online learning is flexible. Online programs allow students to choose the way they learn most effectively. Learning tools and technology enable students to develop effective self-directed learning skills. They are able to identify what they need to learn, find and use online resources. Students using digital learning tools and technology become more engaged in the process and more interested in growing their knowledge base, so they are confident and self-motivated themselves.

In the modern era, Education has become partially digital in most of the educational institute digital method of teaching are used like in most schools smart board is used to teach the concepts to the students. Not only that but also many teachers used online platforms where they upload there lectures and students prefer those lectures over the physical classrooms as these are cheaper than those and student can take those lectures from anywhere in the globe.

As the digital education is providing all the comfort to the students many of them are preferring digital Education. However, the environment that a student got in the traditional education system and the teachings that physically appearing teacher can provide cannot be provided in digital education.
