Apart from learning stuff conventionally from schools, students have been given the opportunity to grasp additional knowledge from online resources in the Internet. E-Learning has revolutionized education to a major extent and helps in rendering a beautiful, intuitive and holistic experience to the learning process. There are many sites which cater to the needs of students, right from the school, high school level to the college level as well. Earlier, the Internet could function solely as a repository of information, but now it has metamorphosed into a place where a bidirectional exchange of information could take place.
