Abstract: E-Learning, of late, has been witnessing an unprecedented expansion as an opportunity for higher education. This expanding alternative mode calls for ensuring and imparting a sound and qualitative education. It is not sufficient to use online learning and teaching technologies (lecture notes, printed material, PowerPoint, websites, animation) simply for the delivery of content to students in e-learning courses. The present study made an attempt to provide the strategies for using the new set of e-tools such as Blogs, Podcasting, Wikis and YouTube, in teaching, learning and supporting of e-learning courses within the education. The findings of the study further demonstrate that if the concept of using new set of tools in e-learning is imparted with a better approach and perspective, the reach will be phenomenal. This study reiterates the relevance of imparting new tools for qualitative education through e- learning.
