It is ultimately the inventions that have made the process and procedure of handling things in a very easy and comfortable zone. These inventions could enhance and influence a great deal in education since it has become the part of the educational institutions not only to educate the students, but also to make them an employable person in the case of higher education. In this case ICT, Information and Communication Technology play a vital role in improving the students’ worldly knowledge and exposure to recent materials and trendy happenings.
