In old days, Gurus would recite information to their Shishyas and they were expected to remember it. Later, the human civilization found a better way and started writing scriptures. These texts made remembering things easier. With the advent of print technology, we started printing books which had pictures and text. Today, e-learning tools on tablets, smart classes are going to set new benchmarks in this legacy of learning.
E-learning is the use of electronic media and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in education. It includes usage media that deliver text, audio, images, animation, and streaming video.
