Enhanced tools for education and communication purposes have been coined with unprecedented efficacy and efficiency. Today anyone can obtain education anywhere, anytime through online education. Thus, breaking the shackles of traditional classroom and adapting to new and electronic learning Technologies empowers all learners irrespective of their diversities. This development in ICT has resulted in a learning environment called e-learning. Some of these technologies (e.g. blogs) have even livened communication and interaction among users.
Title: Teach With Video Technology in Classroom Abstract :
Technology is around everything we do.

Title: Role of Buddhism in the Development of Indian Education Abstract :
In India during the time of Buddha, there was a racial discrimination in the society. This discrimination was according to profession of man and according to birth. In the society there were four divisions of whom Brahman was superior. They enjoyed rights for religious training and education. But other category of people deprived of their religious and educational rights.
It should be observed that it is “the life of holiness” which Buddhism emphasizes much more than the philosophy of life, speculations concerning the mysteries of life and death and such ultimate truths. The entire system of Buddhist education must be rooted in faith (saddhÄ)— faith in the Triple Gem, and above all in the Buddha as the fully enlightened One, the peerless teacher and supreme guide to right living and right understanding. Based on this faith, the students must be inspired to become accomplished in virtue (sÄ«la) by following the moral guidelines spelled out by the Five Precepts. Students should come to appreciate the positive virtues these precepts represent: kindness, honesty, purity, truthfulness, and mental sobriety. They must also acquire the spirit of generosity and self-sacrifice (cÄga), so essential for overcoming selfishness, greed, and the narrow focus on self-advancement that dominates in present-day society.
Title: Transition to Cognitive Learning Theories Abstract :
The roots of instructional theory can be traced to early efforts by educational psychologists to develop a connection between the science of psychology and the practical application of learning theory in educational settings. Two theorists of particular importance at the turn of the century were John Dewey (1910), who envisioned a special linking science between learning theory and educational practice, and Edward Thorndike (1913), who investigated principles of learning that could be directly applied to the teaching process (i.e., the laws of effect and exercise). Thorndike developed a body of instructional design principles that included task analysis and teaching methods based on his research findings and student evaluation methods.
