The traditional classroom is merging with the online world, and students need to know how to function in this blended learning environment. E-Learning creates a safe entry-point for young students to begin navigating the online world and allows them to become comfortable on the internet. E-Learning will teach children basic computer skills like typing, sending emails, working with PDFs, and dealing with online videos and files.
With the various innovations in communications networks hitting the world, it is interesting to note that the traditional means of imparting knowledge in schools and colleges have also been impacted to a considerable extent.
