Digital Education can be characterized as a web based learning which viably makes utilization of the information to give knowledge to the students. Gone are the days of blackboards, chalks and dusters. They have been replaced with web-based teaching which strengthens students’ learning skill. In fact, this has been introduced only a few ages ago and has got a great response from all over the world. It is also known as the Smart Teaching Skill. Most of the learning institutions have willingly adopted this technique, thus, bringing an immense change in the educational system. In the classrooms, students are taught with the help of large screens and projectors which is beyond the conservative way of teaching. Digital Learning helps to learn anywhere and anytime. Education system creates hope and it should never aim to create mere hypes. Over a period of time, many changes have occurred in different sectors of economy including the education system. Education sector unlike any other sector has seen many stages in its evolution. From Guru-Shishya system of conducting the class in open garden under the trees to closed class room lectures, presentation form of teaching with the aid of LCD touch-screen projector to online notes and now instant Whatsapp messages is the buzzword among the students. Whatsapp has gained the status of being authentic formal means of communication among the students and the academicians. Screenshots have taken off the business of many of the photocopy outlets operating within many school and college premises.
