It would be made available to them via internet or video lectures. This way not only will the students benefit by seeking much needed education, but the teachers too will be able to impart education to people at large.

Designing modules, online courses would benefit teachers and students equally. A process that would be made available by academicians and university professors will be well designed to serve the purpose. Not only this, but it would help them understand how they can contribute their best utilizing the latest technology. After all it is all about providing best education to maximum number of students. The confines of classroom will no longer be restricting in knowledge sharing. Working in collaboration with several universities and tie-ups with foreign universities would be a good start.

The time gap will be covered when there is not restriction to sharing and working on common projects. It is all about working with the latest technology in hand to the best of students and academicians.
