Is E-Learning competitive enough if compared to Class Room learning?

With so many modules promoting E Learning / E Studies hitting India and the world, the question is whether this platform will be as beneficial as the old class room method.

  • Jan 20 2012: When one is looking for an education one shouldnt be looking for competition. One should be looking for growth of oneself and his or her capabilities. Any form of education is great, the idea that one should stick to an education system simply because it will propel you forward faster does not serve the purpose of education. Education has nothing to do with diplomas or grades, they say nothing about the person in all honesty. So I agree will e-education and think anyone who chooses such an option should be considered as qualified as anyone who goes through the "Norm".

      Jan 23 2012: I, too, was a little perplexed by the idea that learning is somehow a zero-sum game.

      Why should education be competitive?

      Is there an inherent reason why 2 people cannot both be taught the same thing to the same level of proficiency?
