A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For instance, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students in addition to the primary school website. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
