    The benefits of digital learning in this dispensation cannot be overstated.  But first let's look at the difference between e-learning and traditional method of imparting learning:

The differences between e-learning and traditional learning  No. Traditional learning  Electronic learning

1. Depends on traditional culture and focuses on the production of knowledge and the teacher is the basis of the learning process.Presenting a new kind of culture which is a digital culture that focuses on the processing of knowledge and helps the student to be the focus of the educational process and not the teacher.

2. Traditional education does not require the same cost of e-learning from infrastructure, training teachers and students to acquire technical competencies.It requires high cost especially in the beginning of its application to equip the infrastructure of computers and the production of software , training teachers and students on how to deal with this technology and the design of scientific material electronically and also need to help to provide an interactive environment between teachers and assistants on the one hand and the learners on the other and between the learners among them

3. All students receiving traditional education in the same place and time.E-learning is not committed to providing education in the same place or time, but the learner is not committed to a particular place and time to receive the learning process

4. The student is considered to be negatively dependent on receiving information from the teacher without any effort in the research and survey because it depends on the method of lecture and dumping.It leads to the activity of the learner and its effectiveness in learning the scientific material because it depends on self-learning and on the concept of learning abstraction

5. The learner is required to attend school and regularity throughout the week and accept certain ages without other ages and does not combine study and workIt provides an opportunity for education for all groups in society from housewives and factory workers. Education can be integrated with work.

6. The student’s educational content is presented in the form of a book with written texts, although some images are not available and technical accuracy is not available.The scientific content is more exciting and more motivating for students to learn. It is provided in the form of textual texts, stationary and animated images, video clips, drawings, sketches and simulations, and is in the form of an electronic course or visual e-book.

7. Communication with the teacher determines the time of the lesson and does not take some of the students the opportunity to ask questions to the teacher because the time of the quota is not enough for all.The freedom to communicate with the teacher at any time and ask the questions he wants to be questioned about it is done by different means such as e-mail, chat rooms and other means.

8. The role of the teacher is the vector and the source and the source of the information.The role of the teacher is a guide and a guide to the information, as well as a consultant and assistant student to provide the necessary advice.

9. Colleagues are limited to those in the classroom, school or student residence.Student colleagues vary from different places around the world. There is no remote place or difficulty in identifying colleagues.

10. The language used is the language of the country in which the student lives.The student must learn foreign languages so that he can receive the scientific material and listen to lectures from international professors. The Arab student may be organized to an electronic university in America or Britain

11. Registration, administration, follow-up, duties, tests and certificates are conducted electronically. The student must learn foreign languages so that he can receive the scientific material and listen to lectures from international professors. The Arab student may be organized to an electronic university in America or Britain

12. Limited numbers are accepted per academic year according to availability.Allows unlimited admission of students from all over the world.

13. Does not take into account individual differences between learners and provides the lesson for the whole chapter in a single explanation.Taking into account the individual differences between the learners is based on the provision of education according to the needs of the individual.

14. Depends on conservation and memorization and focuses on the cognitive aspect of the learner at the expense of other aspects, focusing on the preservation of information at the expense of the growth of skills and values and trends and neglect in the cognitive side of problem identification and resolution skills and critical and creative thinking and ways to acquire knowledge.It depends on how the problems are solved and develops the creative and critical ability of the learner.

15. Feedback does not have a clear and satisfactory role.Attention to immediate feedback

16. Educational materials remain unchanged for many years.The ease of updating educational materials provided electronically with everything new.

17. The teacher is the primary source The teacher is an advisor and facilitator of educational resource.

Benefits of e-Learning

    The main advantages, justifications and benefits of e-learning include:

1.Easy access to the teacher: The e-learning has made it much easier to obtain and access the teacher as soon as possible outside the official working hours, because the trainee can now send his inquiries to the teacher through e-mail, and this advantage is more useful and appropriate for the teacher rather than remain restricted to his office. It would be more useful for those whose working hours were inconsistent with the teacher’s schedule or when there was an inquiry at any time that could not be postponed (Kulik, 1989).

2.Increasing the possibility of communication between students among them, and between students and school: Through the ease of communication between these parties in several directions such as discussion boards, e-mail, dialogue rooms.

5.The possibility of changing the teaching method: It is possible to receive the scientific material in a way that suits the student. Some of them are suitable for the visual method. Some of them are suitable for the audible or readable method. Some of them correspond to the practical method. E-learning and its sources allow the possibility of applying the sources in many different ways that allow modification according to the best method for the trainee.

The student has immediate access to the information in the specified place and time, so there is no need to go from home to the classroom, library or office. This saves the time from loss, and the teacher can keep his time from Loss because it can send what the student needs through the line of instant communication.Abed / Electronic Learning and its Benefits in Education6 / 8

13.Reducing the administrative burden for the teacher: The e-learning allows the teacher to reduce administrative burdens that took a lot of time in each lecture, such as receipt of duties and other e-learning has been alleviated from this burden, it has become possible to send and receive all these things through electronic tools with the possibility of knowing receipt of these documents.

14.Reducing the workload of the school: The e-learning Provide tools that analyze grades, results and tests as well as the development of statistics about them and also to send the files and records of students to the Registrar of the College
