Distance learning has grown in shape and size, and at present, accounts for 22% of the total GER of students in the higher education segment. Considering the needs of the Indian mass, who want to pursue higher education while continuing to work, distance education can be the bridge for aspiring students/working professionals to achieve their dreams.

According to a survey, close to 24% of all enrolments in the higher education system is from the ODL system. Distance Learning Universities can focus on opening up information/learning centers in regions with low GER but vast student potential to boost this percentage. This apart, given the internet penetration in the country, the online medium of training and studying can be adopted in regions with a prominent internet presence.
