Education is a process as well as a product. To create good product out of education it must be consistent reconstruction. The aim of education should, educate for vocation, knowledge, culture, with the qualitative process of methodologies. Education must have a good method in its systems, especially teaching and learning, so that effective and desirable end products are evolved. Hence quality improvement in educational methodology, whether in teaching or learning, often comes under the purview of educational character, leisure, spiritualism, individual development, social efficiency, complete living. For building up a new generation of men and women, committed to the process of modernization, an appropriate training and motivation of the individuals is impressive.
