Abstract

This paper argues that the University system is under great pressure from industry (society) to deliver such finished products (graduates) from its system so as to be directly absorbed into industry and that too at a mass scale and in a short period of time.

For this the University system has to undergo a process re-engineering so as to be able to deliver to industry needs. There needs to be a new Knowledge Management System in place, in the University, that is based on the new Pedagogic System that is skill augmenting. For achieving this, three strands of process re-engineering of the University System are needed.

1. e-learning 2. distance / open learning 3. an outcomes approach to pedagogy
