The method of communication of knowledge is changing very fast from single teacher and a group of students at one place to single teacher and several groups of students at different places. From one way communication to two way audio & video communication to students group in different locations, from synchronous to asynchronous educational communication and packaging of knowledge from print to electronic form. Finally, from XML & HTML content to instructional design based self learning video embedded modules. All this is facilitated by new communication technology and a new paradigm has evolved in teaching profession in the world.
