    E-Learning Application educators must not overlook in this era

Technology has changed the face of education across the globe and it’s a system that will continue to improve on its past achievements. Teaching in the 21st century has become easier, convenient, and less stressful with the introduction of E-Learning applications.

E-Learning applications have played a huge role in the advancement of education across the globe and its important educators get themselves familiar with the application they must be well-equipped with, in a bid to develop themselves.

What is an E-Learning Application? 

E-Learning App is a social networking website for education which connects students, teachers, parents and school or institution in a safe and unique network. 

This App is just like other prominently used social networks but doesn't allow you to divert from the topic and help you to stick on to the topic. One benefit of these types of apps is that they can keep students connected to the classroom, even while they’re away from school.

Highlighted below are E-Learning Applications educators must be well-equipped with in this era.

Microsoft Teams is a persistent chat-based collaboration platform complete with document sharing, online meetings, and many more extremely useful features for teaching in the classroom.  It has become one of the most used platforms across the globe. With Microsoft Teams, educators can quickly converse with students, share files and websites. It also allows educators organize interactive lessons and provide effective and timely feedback.

Each grid is like a message board where teachers can pose questions, called "topics," and their students can post video responses that appear in a tiled grid display. Flipgrid is a simple, free, and accessible video discussion experience for learners and families.
