e-Learning: Paradigm Shift in Higher Education

Education is given very high importance as a priority of life in many societies. Access to quality education on the other hand is not equitable, with a vast majority deprived of good tertiary, school, professional and community education.

e-Learning is identified as a means of providing access to education of a larger community who are unable to obtain access to education through traditional means. Thus e-Learning, if introduced in a well planned manner, would be of immense benefit to a wide audience who would be able to access quality education at low cost.
