Abstract

In the sixty odd years after independence, Indian education system has seen remarkable transition from colonial root-elite system to an egalitarian or mass system committed to society needs. To accelerate the sectoral growth, Universities were started in each state of the country. New professional courses, technical and skill based curriculum were also introduced. At the moment, there are 567 Universities on national level and Tamil Nadu being the state having most number of universities, counting 55 in total. The multi-cultural study atmosphere, multinational work environment, fiercing competition to secure good jobs warrants every student either in school or college to be more informative for every minute. The age old system of learning within the walls of the class room will not be sufficient to face the emerging challenges in knowledge based society. The electronic revolution stated from seventies now turns every one computer centric. Hence it is imperative to keep our students tune with new learning techniques through latest web based communication gadgets. In this context combination of the instructional methods in other words blended learning techniques should be used at college level teaching so as to make the teaching-learning process effective and purposeful.
