(…) India, which accounts for a quarter of the developing world’s population and has the third largest higher education system in the world. Today, 23 percent of all higher education enrollments in India are in distance education–specifically in 13 national and state open universities and 106 institutions, mostly public, that teach both on campus and by correspondence. The government’s target is that by 2010, 40 percent of all higher education participation will take place using distance education.
