E- Learning: Concept and Initiatives in India
Shamshir Singh, Ranjit Kaur
Today's young generation have been raised in a world of science and technology with instant access to knowledge and information just at the click of the mouse button. India is a land of great diversity with students coming from different soicio-economic backgrounds. In the presence of social diversity in India, it is difficult to change the social background of students, parents and their economic conditions. Therefore the only option left for us is to provide uniform teaching learning resources or methods throughout the country. For high quality education throughout India there must be some nation wide network, which provides quality education to all students, including the student from the rural areas and villages. The solution to this problem is Web-Based Learning. India is well placed at the dawn of information and technology era. For India to become a knowledge society, it has to be a learning society first. For life long learning, it is not only the settings of formal education that are important, but also the settings of home, the work place, the community and the society at large are important. The research has shown that web 2.0 technologies have enabled universities to implement distance education to reach more diverse populations and increase the availability of web-based learning environments. The Web holds several advantages over traditional learning. The Web allows interactive delivery with multimedia content that helps overcome the limitations of traditional resources.
