Facts show that around 41% of the total population falls under the category of youth (age of 15 – 24), who now focuses more towards the online ways of learning. The internet has revolutionized the way of education. Now the new learning methods include e-learning techniques, i.e. through the electronic media such as mobile phones, laptops, smart classes, computers, tablets etc. which is generally through the use of the internet (online mode).

Online education removes the barrier of borders of different countries to access home education.

This will enhance the skills of students in a better way.
