Education is a constantly evolving industry. From only academic knowledge it has come a long way. Do you remember the time when teachers would quickly scribble some notes on the blackboard and you would have to mug it up without fully understanding the context? There were few questions asked and even fewer answered and mugging up was probably the easiest form of learning.
