Simple answer you can understand, the schema is the details of database objects, the columns of a table along with their data types, indices, constraints, checks, rules, identity etc. In views the SQL of the view and column names, view indices etc. The difference is that the proper schema guides to proper database design, also documented schema allows you to re-design the database again in case it has been lost for any reason. Sometimes we talk about a database that is not yet implemented; we then use its schema to identify. I hope this simple and clear.
