The traditional model (face to face) of learning has always been our way since time immemorial. Through this article, I will share with you the little experience I encountered with respect to online learning and eLearning. I know people might get confused with these two terms but trust me they are similar but not the same. Let’s throw more light on the two terms to differentiate them.
e-Learning allows the students to interact with their teacher only through the internet. They cannot learn or communicate with their teacher even if they are on the same premises. Online, on the other hand, allows the students to use virtual conferencing software like Big Blue Button, Zoom, etc. to interact with their teacher face-to-face along with learning online through the internet. With this explanation, these terms are similar in nature.

Most teachers visit their social media handles weekly and monthly, this time around, you would have to change that habit because you will lose a lot if you do that. Students are to note that social media platforms such as WhatsApp and telegram will be additionally used even after you migrated to the online learning platform.
However, the institution may adopt s blended form of learning where students will have online lectures and write a face to face exam on their various campuses.
