E-learning has made it a lot easier for students to learn as it is extremely convenient and user friendly. These various tools are used to make a boring chapter more colourful and interesting. Technology can add audio visual effects to the contents of a bland chapter which will make you want to study it. When you look at chapters in a fat, black and white text book, do really feel like sitting and reading them? Of course not, who will like to sit through boring classes?

Technical tools make long chapters seem short. For example, those who aren’t good at reading and remembering can resort to other methods of learning, like listening to the audio recording of the chapter. Those who remember better with pictorial clues can study a chapter by watching videos of it being taught in class. Distance education colleges use various technical tools to make the syllabus easier for the learner. Technical tools for distance learning courses helps students evolve as they step into a new world. They become more technology friendly and learn to accept technology. As the world is taken over by technology, the faster one adapts to it the more productive they will become in the near future. Educational technology also helps one to learn on their own without disturbing others for help.
