English abstract

e-Governance and e-Learning are two important facets of electronic transmission of information on two different planes. If electronic government programs are vital for the improvement of public services, then 'e-Learning' is a boon for ensuring qualitative education all around. Many people are still confused if 'e-Governance' and 'e-Learning' are synonymous. This paper attempts to unveil this confusion by highlighting some of the assorted facets of each concept. Moreover, the paper explores the potential impact of e-Governance upon the modern society, focuses on the latent advantages of e-Learning in academic environment, and addresses the core aspects of the two sides of the same coin. The authors deduce that 'e-Governance' and 'e-Learning' are the two emerging concepts of modern ICT that are introduced and implemented at government and institutional levels respectively to promote efficient and effective communication of electronic information so as to bridge the gap of digital divide worldwide.
