Earlier, the closed room teaching with teachers scribbling on black boards was much criticised. However, that was then. The rooms might be the same but the environment within the rooms has changed completely. The conventional black-board has made way for digital equipment, making the learning process not just more colourful but also more interesting.

The traditional schooling experience requires you to attend classes in person and on campus. In traditional classes, the use of board and chalk is observed. While Smart classes use all interactive modules like videos and presentations. Smart Classes improves teaching effectiveness and eases administrative tasks by providing teachers with the easy to use tools.

Class Timing:
In Traditional classes, Schedule is fixed and pre-decided. Students and teachers have little say in this decision. Class duration is fixed and usually not extendable, as the next class waits to use the classroom. While extra classes can be scheduled, they’re often impractical and usually result in low attendance. While in smart classes, Schedule can be flexible, according to the needs of both teacher and students. Class duration is easily extendable, instructor and student time permitting. Schedule extra classes at your convenient time and study from the luxury of home.

Learner groups:
In Traditional classes, Students can be a homogenous group, sharing overlapping social circles and customs. Students typically fall within a similar age, profession, or academic background.While in smart classes, Students can be a heterogeneous group, even global, with a variety of non-intersecting (and perhaps conflicting) social circles and customs. Student composition may vary greatly in age, profession, and academic background.

Teaching methodology:
In Traditional classes, Classes are typically teacher–driven and teacher-centric. Traditional teaching tools are used, such as lecture notes, charts, blackboard writing, showing physical models, laboratory experiments, etc. Learning environment can be dull and fun in class is kept to a minimum to avoid disciplinary issues. While in smart classes, Classes can be technology-driven and learner-centric, with the teacher as a facilitator. Teachers have better teaching tools to effectively engage learners. Virtual classrooms allow students more freedom to create experiment, explore and steer the class. This freedom can produce improved student performance. Modern teaching tools are used, such as multimedia, animation, 3D modelling, virtual, etc. Learning environment can be stimulating and fun. Moderation tools allow the teacher to easily control the class.

Collaboration in learning:
In Traditional classes, Teacher and students collaborate in the physical classroom. It’s hard to address the needs of different levels of learners in a single class. If there aren’t additional resources available for groups such as slower or gifted students, they often have to make do with a one-size-fits-all average class. Usually, one teacher per class is Difficult to bring in guest speakers due to physical and travel constraints. Mostly single subject learning due to space and scheduling constraints. While in smart classes, Teachers and students collaborate online via audio, video, and text chat. It’s easier to work with different learner types. Divide a single virtual classroom into breakout sessions, and let students of different levels work at their own pace, while the teacher moderates and facilitates. Easier to involve multiple teachers, and to bring in guest speakers from anywhere in the world. Inter-disciplinary and off-beat subjects easy to teach and learn, thanks to lack of space and fewer scheduling constraints.

In Traditional classes, Evaluation involves taking tests, and handing in manually-graded assignments. Time-consuming and results are slow. While in smart classes, Automated evaluation conducted through online tests. Results are quick, accurate, and completely transparent. Generate feedback through online polls and immediate results so that further class learning is steered accordingly.

In Traditional classes, Class is held, and if you forget to note something down or can’t attend, you’ve missed it. While in smart classes, Classes are recorded, including audio, video and even screen. Students can review the instructor’s exact explanation and methods, and administrators can review both the instructor’s and students’ performance.
