With the evolution of the computers, the internet and supported by the increase in data network speeds, the online distance education is the go-to solution to many students, faculties and academicians. Over the last decade, there has been a slow transition from traditional classroom learning to on-line e-learning.
Also many schools, to be in line with this trend, have the regular classroom sessions supplemented by online e-learning sessions to help their students. e-Learning is an excellent complement to full-time study and aids in improving the quality and effectiveness of traditional training.
