Lectures are the talk bestowed by one person to another person or group about any matter. It may be delivered by someone qualified or, at times, by someone naive. Mainly, it is used in academic institutions by a teacher or distinguished faculty members regarding any topic and subject.

The lectures keep the student’s progress in check with the subject need and overall curriculum and add examination values. In this method, the listener is generally passive. A lecture in an academic institution is based on the principle that students can learn better via listening. With time, visual and computer-aided learning has replaced traditional lecture methods, making lectures more interactive and easily comprehensible.

Lectures can be attractive to a few students while boring to others. It is also difficult to interact with the lecturer during the process as it interrupts their regular flow and this can disincentive students from asking questions at a later period.

As lectures are based on facts, decision-making ability and analytical thinking take a back seat sometimes. Live classes substitute traditional classes in modern times. It is a two-mode communication process where students interact with the lecturer in live sessions, and it solves the doubt of students in a live session itself.
