No it is not the same thing, here are some excerpts to help explain:

Decoupage is done by adding a coat of Mod Podge with a foam brush to the item that is to be covered. You then add your papers in any direction, shape or form that you like. After that portion is dried, you add another coat of the Mod Podge on top of the papers to seal it. This is especially helpful if you know it will be handled frequently. It applies a protective layer and keeps the ends from peeling up. Mod Podge is a definite must-have in the altered-art world.

PVA (polyvinyl acetate) is another product that has been around for quite a while, but doesn't quite have the recognition it deserves. This glue looks the same as Mod Podge, but acts a little differently. PVA isn't usually used as a sealer because it doesn't dry quite as thick. It does, however, adhere paper to just about any surface. When used in conjunction with a brayer (mini rubber rolling pin) it will apply your papers smoothly without air bubbles. I can't do an altered project without this product being used somewhere. It doesn't have a very strong odor, so it can be used indoors with ease. If you prefer the "sticking power" of PVA, but also want the sealer, you can use the PVA on bottom and the Mod Podge on top--a killer combination in my opinion. Both are water based for easy cleanup.

Elmer's Glue-All, commonly called Elmer's Glue, is a glue based on an emulsion of polyvinyl acetate, useful for porous materials such as wood, cardboard, paper, and cloth. It hardens through evaporation of water. While Elmer's white glue used to have a different formulation based on a milk protein (casein), that is no longer true.[1] The product is now derived solely from petrochemical feedstock.
