iArchitecture for improved adoption of eLearning in India

Dr. Ashok Bhansali

Abstract


Abstract—eLearning is fast becoming part of the life and has huge potential in India. eLearning technologies have great possibilities to spread learning and have the potential to redefine the education delivery mechanism in schools and colleges. However adoption has been slow and driving an eLearning implementation campaign in a diverse country like India is a tough job and requires coordinated efforts not just from the government side but from all the corners of the society. Moreover many of the concept of eLearning and many such courses emanated from western countries and may not be suitable for the typical socio-economic-geographic condition of India. This paper concentrates on the eLearning in Indian education scenario, various eLearning models and makes significant observations which could be critical to embrace eLearning into the existing education system. We also propose an iArchitecture which aims at bridging the gap between the basic building blocks of typical Indian Engineering Education system namely government, school, teachers, students and parents to connect them in a loose but effective and efficient manner. It has the potential to become the defacto standard for the implementation and enhanced adoption of any eLearning system in India. It is intended to support closed loop feedback and monitoring system to support the open learning, supplement blended learning and extends the reach of education to all corners of the society.

Key words—eLearning, Education in India, ICT
