Online Courseware Obstacles in the Developing World
More and more young people worldwide are aspiring to higher education of some kind. But building more universities to accommodate to this growing demographic is not economically possible for many countries. In India alone, over two thousand additional universities would be necessary to correspond to the escalating demand for higher education. Could online courseware be an answer to this problem?
As it is now, the “digital divide”–implying a lack of technological infrastructure in many countries–separates the technological haves from the have-nots, including access to online courseware. However, in both developed and developing countries, the internet holds the power to offer cost-effective means to provide access to higher education and training opportunities. Online courseware could transform dramatically from its elite status to a more popular one.
