E-LEARNING-AWAY OF LIFE! ODFOLLOWER’SORATE VenkateshGanapathy Internet has become an intrinsic part of our lives today. Despite the various forms of abuse that prevail, the fact is that internet has revolutionised the education sector in many ways that were unimaginable in the last decade. Modern technology tools enable you to stay connected despite the geographical barriers. E-learning has therefore become the next logical step in the process of learning. Special classes are being conducted by schools via tools like video conferencing and Skype. Students in schools are being given projects that are impossible to complete without a computer with an internet connection. Working professionals are realising their dreams of completing their MBA by correspondence but in the process they are suitably aided by e-learning tools. Theoretical papers that were subjective evaluation by examiners are being replaced by online examinations that have objective type questions. However, we need to bear in mind that it is only now that Internet has started reaching our villages and other mofussil areas in India. The success of e-learning is greatly dependent on technology. So, if we have slow internet connections or prolonged power outages, the interruption in e-learning can’t be avoided. Despite these drawbacks, e-learning will become a way of life in the future.

Many schools have started using a projector instead of a black board. This is a progressive step indeed; however one can’t help feeling that black boards have their own charm and also biology/chemistry diagrams are best drawn on black boards. To enable e-learning to become more popular, it is important that such courses are offered at an affordable price. So, yes, definitely, e-learning is the next revolution in training.
