Abstract

If an educational institution is committed to give high quality education, it should be built on values and ethics, and be innovative in offering its teaching programmes. E-learning is not a single strand but is multifaceted, covering a wide range of approaches and methods. The present study was conducted to find out the current status of e-learning in higher education. Thus, in order to study this objective 2919 teachers (839 teachers from professional courses and 2080 teachers from non-professional courses) and 7717 students (4512 students from professional courses and 3205 from non-professional courses at UG & PG levels) were selected as a sample from the eleven state universities of U.P. for the present study. It was found that below average number of professional courses’ teachers in higher education are using e-learning mode whereas only a few non-professional courses’ teachers are using e-learning mode. There are three modes of e-learning: online mode, hybrid/blended mode and e-enhancement mode but only e-enhancement mode is being presently used by the professional and non-professional courses’ teachers in Indian higher education.
