Abstract: With the advent of new technologies, “digital learning and teaching” has been gaining more ‎attention and is becoming an inseparable part of new curriculums. Although most of the ‎studies demonstrate the effectiveness of Electronic-lectures (E-lecture) in improving learning ‎and teaching, there are experts who warn against the trend of changes claiming that the ‘live’ ‎lectures may very soon become obsolete. They argue that E-lectures do not provide an ‎interactive environment required for learning and teaching. ‎This paper is intended to investigate the effectiveness of E-lecturers on learning of Master ‎level Electrical and Electronic students at Swansea University, UK. Since most of the ‎previous research in this area lacks the students’ view on the matter, a survey will also be used ‎to hear the students’ voices on the concept of digital learning/teaching.
