It has rapidly evolved from a thing of the future to a practical approach towards education and will continue to be an extremely useful classroom teaching tool as well as self-study platform. With the rise of virtual reality technology and augment reality solutions, experimental subjects, skill-based learning and military training will come to depend more heavily on e-learning solutions. Various education technology providers are also hinting towards the rise of mobile learning solutions (also known as m-learning) as the advanced stage of education technology in future. Students can access educational assistance with services such as online tutoring, online programming help and coursework guidance.
