Online interactive learning has entirely changed the method of education. It has completely changed the way students learn. As education has become more interactive, personalised, accessible and flexible, there is an immediate need to improve the traditional method of delivering education. For that; universities have to introduce new tools and apps to make classroom learning more interesting and worth sitting for.
