Level Trigger:

1) The input signal is sampled when the clock signal is either HIGH or LOW.

2) It is sensitive to Glitches.

Example: Latch.

Edge Trigger:

1) The input signal is sampled at the RISING EDGE or FALLING EDGE of the clock signal.

2) It is not-sensitive to Glitches.

Example: Flipflop.
