A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. For instance, many websites like 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 an independent site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for college students aside from the primary school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.
