Abstract: The Internet has revolutionized the learning of the present day students in colleges and universities. A lot of information is available in the resources available through the internet to students. Though internet is a blessing to the present generation of students, the understanding of fundamental concepts, storing them in the permanent memory and application of acquired knowledge for solving engineering as well as social problems appear to have declined. Students as well as young IT professionals spend a lot of time with computers and are deprived of normal sleep. This paper presents the importance of 8 hours of sleep required for preventing memory loss compared to activities that occur while one is awake. Ways to improve memory are discussed. Mnemonics: Memory "Tricks" are explained with suitable examples to enhance learning skills of students. The effect of ergonomically designed class rooms/buildings, design of teaching process and design of educational materials for enhancing learning skills of students are explored
