Various Modes of e-Learning for Students

Students always feel bored while studying the same books every day. They always need something new which can make studying a joyful task. For those who want to study and don’t want to get bored, e-Learning is the ultimate solution for them. So, what is e-Learning? e-Learning is the use of technology to connect the instructor to the students. The sessions can be delivered in a number of ways. In the past, these were done using floppy disks, interactive video disk, and CD-ROMs.

Most recently web technology is being used as a mode of learning for students.

As most of the web-based contents are in the audio-video format and these audio-video contents also have interactive animations and images which makes it a user-friendly medium to deliver the study material.

Offline Learning or computer-based learning

This type of training can be accessed offline on computers or at any mobile device.  As these study materials are loaded in a memory card or in a hard drive, users can just plug and play the videos or they can read the study materials at their own place and at their own pace. Using these kinds of study materials will help those students who live in places where there is no internet connectivity.


A webinar session is like an online workshop or just an online classroom where different students from different corners of the world study together from an instructor or from a group of instructors. One of the best parts of this kind of sessions is that one can host a large group where they can share their thoughts and can ask questions in the ongoing class or training session. In addition to these, they can also share study materials or documents to each other. For example, you are taking a class of statistics and you are not able to understand a formula or some part of it, you can inform the instructor instantly that you are not able to understand the formula.
