The main purpose of this study is not to compare online and traditional face-to-face instruction merely to prove which one is better. This paper aims to highlight some of the possible risks and strengths which may help to improve the role of teachers in both methods. The study can be designed using a quantitative and qualitative methodological combination, and focus on the dimensions of “theoretical content”, “practical content”, “tutor/student interaction” and “design” of the training activity. Teachers in online classrooms primarily need to understand distance education and how it differs from conventional methods. These people are required to be subject matter experts, education designers, social facilitators and teachers in an online environment. The “face” of an e-learning course may not be an actual face, but more the overall look and feel of the design. Classrooms are teacher-driven, whereas an e-learning course is student-driven. Instruction in higher education has developed significantly over the past two decades, influenced by two trends. They are (1) promotion of active learning methods and (2) integration of Web technology in e-learning. Many studies found that active teaching improves students' success, involvement and thinking skills. Let us consider teacher (t) as source and student (s) as a customer. We establish various parametric impacts on teachers and students and represented in the form of general mathematical model. e-learning is to integrate technologies and new knowledge to allow learners to learn new knowledge anytime and anywhere without constraints of time and space. With the increasing prevalence of e-learning, many cram school operators have released their own instructions based on e-learning methods, including CD or cassette-based distance learning, single-learner online learning, and multi-learner multimedia-assisted instructions. Their primary purposes are to promote e-learning among students. Moreover, effectiveness and satisfaction of learning, instructors, and environments can be compared between E-learning and face-to-face learning. Students who used e-learning method will be more satisfied on learning materials and learning environment compared to traditional face-to-face learning method, using data mining techniques.
