What is a Digital University under e-vidya programme?
As per the centre's e-vidya initiative, a digital university is a web of several major universities in India that will initiate digital programmes using modern teaching techniques. Such universities will work as a distribution centre and the students will be the last thread connecting to these centres. These universities will be set up as per the Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE) standards.
The scheme is aimed at providing quality educational courses to students in remote areas of the country. These courses will consist of technical, professional and management courses among others.
