Abstract

E-learning is referred to the use of networked information and communications technology in designing, delivering, selecting and extending learning. It is the convergence of learning and the Internet. The universalisation of education has become the top priority, especially for the developing countries. But the extension of quality education to remote and rural regions becomes a Herculean task for a large country like India with multi-lingual population separated by vast geographical distances. Satellites can establish the connectivity between urban educational institutions with adequate infrastructure imparting quality education and the large number of rural and semi-urban educational institutions that lack the necessary infrastructure. EduSat is satellite designed by ISRO and it is exclusively devoted to the field of education.  Many states are implementing EduSat project and imparting education through satellite technology as an essential part of education system. In this paper we will focus on role of EduSat satellite in e-learning.
