The enrollment of online higher education in India is expected to increase by 14.5 percent i.e it will reach upto 63.63 lakhs by the year 2022, reported PTI. This enrollment growth will be somewhere close to the USA and Europe.
According to the report generated by Schoolguru Eduserve (a TeamLease group company), the aspects that will give a boost to the industry are the UGC (University Grant Commission) regulations for online programmes allowing universities in India to offer online degree programmes and the government’s impetus on improving Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER).
“Online learning can provide a potent alternative for the massification of higher education thereby helping the country improve its GER rates from the current 25% to the targeted 30%” said, Shantanu Rooj, CEO and Founder, Schoolguru Eduserve.
Schoolguru was founded in the year 2012 with a 5 members team and now, which has grown to 125+ employees, spread across 11 locations in India. It provides the improved Open and Distance Learning (ODL) programmes to the students seeking higher education in India to pursue online.
The services of Schoolguru are used by universities not only in serving their ODL students but also making them employable and assisting them in getting employed.
