Mere traditional classroom teaching is now a matter of the past. Introduction of technology has revolutionized the way teaching is conducted. It offers the flexibility for learning to be available to students at any desired time or place. Digitalization of education has also blurred the borders that were previously defined by students and teachers being present in the same location at the same time. Over the last decade, distance and online learning is becoming increasingly popular in India. Online learning courses are on the rise and have been facilitated by the increase in digital technology now being available in most of the country. Additionally, with the introduction of the learning management systems (LMS), student assessment through digitalization technology is now a reality. Students can also interact with their peers in and outside of the classroom. The aspect of peer centred learning has also helped to steer the soft skills of the students. LMS would positively impact the teaching process and student assessment. Furthermore, it provides an opportunity for students and faculty to attend or conduct a session from an off - site location, therefore making the world seem smaller and more accessible.
