“Tomorrow’s illiterate will not be the man who can’t read; he will be the man who has not learned how to learn.” Herbert Gerjuoy.


Learning is something we do from the very moment we take birth. It can be explained as

an act of trying to grasp a skill or acquire knowledge. There are a variety of ways in which one

can learn, two popular methods being traditional learning and e-learning. Traditional learning is

where there is physical interaction between the teacher and the learner while e-learning is done at

a distance, typically via the internet.


After having understood both techniques, we might wonder which one way is better than

the other. Some may say that, E-Learning is a new approach that is growing in popularity and is

a better way of learning. While a few others may argue that the traditional approach is the best

way to go about it.


Traditional learning plays a vital role in shaping students personality. Learning in a

classroom environment promotes collaborative learning; they tend to adopt different ways of

learning that are practised by their friends. Engaging in classroom discussions provide them with

an opportunity to think critically and develop healthy competitiveness. Traditional learning is

very crucial at a young age. The experiences that children go through and the environment they

are in, have a great influence on how they are shaped as human beings. Being in a classroom

setting with other students will help them develop their social skills and organizational skills.

Even though we can obtain a great deal of knowledge via e-learning, the skills that we need in

our career and a work environment are best learnt through practical experiences. A few abilities

like resolving conflicts, interacting with peers, working collectively and being a good listener

can only be picked up when you are learning in a traditional setting.


Although traditional learning is a good approach, we are seeing an increased number of

people who prefer e-learning due to its convenience and affordability. E-Learning can be

attractive for people who love a large variety of course options that are not accessible otherwise.

It promotes independent learning and gives you the chance to learn and train yourself at your

own convenient timings. The downside of e-learning can be that it doesn’t give you an

opportunity to have a physical one on one with the teacher and more importantly, it is mostly

knowledge based rather than practicality based.


Even though e-learning and online learning are gaining popularity, nothing can replace

the conventional methods of learning, at least not in entirety. Teaching is not a technical job

requiring you to meet set deadlines. Teachers have upon themselves to mould the minds of

young people, which would define their future. On the other hand, learning is not merely gaining

the most amount of knowledge, instead, it is to gain the ability to analyse and apply the said

knowledge in the real world. This is particularly true in today’s age of artificial intelligence. Vast

amount of knowledge is available at our fingertips, so today’s students require more than mere

assimilation of knowledge. In my opinion, such wholesome education is possible better through

the traditional methods of learning.
