The Future of Higher Education in India: Online Programs

University 4.0 is an upcoming phenomenon that is advancing rapidly in higher education services, where the traditional hierarchy of the Universities will be challenged for its sustainability. In India, only universities that are able to adapt to the automation of pedagogy will be able to transform themselves into modern Institutions and deliver a hi-tech experience for students. We may witness a revolution in higher education, where technology will have a pivotal role in the emergence of new era universities.

Event Agenda

Auditorium Hall,

Netaji Subhas Open University

The Future of Higher Education in India: Online Programs is organized by India Education Forum in partnership with Netaji Subhas Open University exclusively for the leaders of HEIs, to understand, interpret, discuss and brainstorm on the trends and opportunities for Online Learning in India. The summit will assess the current situation, challenges and opportunities relating to the Distance Education in India in light of the recent developments. Participants will be encouraged to share their experience and best practices on the technological advancements leading to the future era of Universities. The speaker panel will focus on the vision of Online Universities in India with a focus on legal, economic, cultural and technological parameters.

Why You Should Attend

The implementation of University 4.0 model isn't as simple as it appears, given the condition that the Universities need to obligatorily meet the measures of UGC regulations for online programs in India before the set due dates. We are at a turning point of a revolutionary change and there is a dire need for all the leaders of higher education to come forward for a collective contribution. The Future of Higher Education in India: Online Programs is an opportunity, where the leaders and associated stakeholders of HEIs can focus on specific areas from their own perspective and academic experiences. The summit will address every clause defined by the UGC for online programs with an objective to create a profound plan of action for implementing online programs in India.
