  • Student takes whole responsibility of himself in learning process. So that he becomes more confident.
  • Students will become more flexible with computer, which is much essential in present generation.
  • We can do the course in the university of foreign countries without going to there.
  • Students can become comfortable in face-face to conversations which is very important in career.

In Against:-

  • Through classroom learning, we can clarify our doubts immediately.
  • Through classroom learning, we can increase our presentation skills.
  • Through classroom learning, we can know how to behave with colleagues and superiors.
  • Teachers in classroom can know whether students understand the topic or not, and explains the topic clearly using general examples.

             E-learning has its own advantages and disadvantages. It can’t be a substitute for classroom learning up to graduation level. But after graduation level E-learning can be a substitute for classroom learning. If the student have more interest in studies, he can go for E-learning. If he has no interest, a person must be there to create interest in him by general examples and to make him study, that’s only possible with class room learning.

  1. According to me E-learning is not substitute than class room learning. Though E-learning is time saving and money saving but class room learning there is any problems student can ask with their teachers or faculty. Class room learning student make it discipline and punctual, this is the asset in their whole life. E-LEARNING there is question of discipline and punctuality, student can learn as per their choice.Yes those are professional people E-LEARNING is good for them because they don’t have time .At least upto graduation E-LEARNING is not good. Class room learning student he is not lots of students are there so they can interact with each other they could solve their problems but E-LEARNING you have to study alone. Those people they don’t have time E-LEARNING is good for them. But not substitute to class room learning.

  2. according to me e-learning is better than classroom learning because it provides us all the information at a single place without heavy expenditure but just for educational point of view. It also clear our doubts whenever these live sessions are going on we can ask our queries to them as we do in classroom learning and through this we be able to study at anytime and will not hesitate to ask about our queries because some students do hesitate while asking queries in classroom but out here he will not.

  3. E learning is very important for students to build up their knowledge easily.It is very important for every one

  4. Ya ,Now I actually got a clear cut idea of what e-learning is.Because I have so much experience in only classroom learning and only a little experience in e-learning and thank u sooo much.

  5. I believe that rather than listening to things it is better to visualize them.So e-learning has its own advantages as above and coming to the point of classroom we can clarify our doubts.But recent e-learning sites are developed with interaction type of interfaces.So we can say that e-learning is better than classroom learning when it is facilitated by doubt clarification interface.
