IT ICT Adoption in indian higher education
Higher education plays a pivotal role in the development of a country, as it is viewed as a powerful means to build knowledge based society. In India, higher education imparted by universities is facing challenges in terms of Access, Equity and Quality. The Government of India has taken several initiatives during the Eleventh Five Year Plan period to increase access to higher education by adopting state specific strategies, enhancing the relevance of higher education through Curriculum reforms, Vocational programs, Networking, Information Technology adoption and Distance Education along with reforms in governance. However in terms of Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER), India still lags behind the worldwide average and emerging countries like Brazil and China.
