As far as I can understand, the difference is how you can use the functions/classes inside the module being imported.
1.
import div
#to use any function inside div module, you should do this:
div.function_one()

Open in new window


2.
from div import *
#to use same function as above, you can do like this:
function_one()

Open in new window
