E-LEARNING; AN END TO TRADITIONAL TEACHING
Before the launch of the internet distance learning was offered to the students. The students would get education material and they would send their assignments and tests using surface mail. Computer testing starting in early twentieth century but with the establishment of internet at the end of the century the tools and delivery methods for e-learning really expanded. In courses where didactic lectures are involved eLearning is going to be the future because it is student friendly and can be repeated and attended at convenience of the students. Although controlling attendance is much easier in traditional classroom setting. On the other hand, courses involving skills lab or clinical teaching a mixture of traditional and eLearning (blended) learning is the way forward. Considering the benefits of blended learning institutions in our country should plan on incorporating this as part of their Undergraduate Medical School curriculum.
