By leveraging technology, the world is moving quickly towards adopting innovative methods in teaching. It is imperative to provide students in India with efficient means of education and transform them to excel globally. Owing to Digital India initiative by the Government, India is becoming a digitally connected country. Many educational institutions began to transform their teaching methods by equipping their classrooms with the latest digital technologies to reap the benefits of e-learning. Embracing this e-learning trend, many vendors came up with solutions to digitalize the classrooms. However, Smart classrooms and implementing e-learning is not limited to digitally equipping the classrooms and converting the content in books into digital format. Another difficulty with e-learning is a huge disparity between the actually prescribed syllabus and the available digital content.
