The new modes of learning need to be explored to determine possible impact and most suitable choice of strategies. Understanding our student extents and capabilities of learning on their own coupled with the availability of basic and necessary equipments required for e-learning will have profound impact on the choice of e-teaching, e-learning and e-education delivery mode. A right choice of delivery mode is very essential and fundamental in moving forward to attain the much needed greater height in quality education. A wrong choice however, could deal a devastating blow on any progress made so far in the implementation of e-learning which would in turn have a ripple effect on the quality, acceptability level, pass rate and cost.
