  • Amarjeet Singh Mastana


Various measures have been made to restrict the spread of Covid-19, resulting in the establishment of a new normal life order. Changes include performing all tasks at home, always washing hands, using a mask, and keeping a safe distance. The new normal is also strongly tied to digital technologies (IT), as various operations are carried out with the assistance of information technology. In the present Information and Communication Technology time e-learning assumes a crucial job being developed of an individual and therefore eventual fate of a country. Many individuals have known about terms, for example, distance education or distance learning, yet with the presentation of e-learning, distance education took on an entirely different significance. The electronic learning (E-Learning) deemed as computer helped education has been around since the 1960s anyway its choice and advancement transcendently started after the headway of the web and the Internet. New patterns in e-learning being secured under artificial intelligence (AI), virtual and enabled reality, cloud e-learning, blended learning, mobile learning, gamification, Internet of things, and online video. In the modern age, there has been a significant increase in creativity and use of technologies. As a result, all of us must be able to grasp IT, particularly in the domains of education and health care. Work For Home (WFH) is one of the technological advancements that have evolved in today's work environment, along with home study, online classes or webinars, online health consultations, and several other advances. This Article recognizes different aspects of E-learning and ongoing trends of technologies shaping the quality of E-learning life during pandemic.
