By making the process technology-intensive, from content development using graphics, animation and webinars to e-learning modules and virtual classroom virtual sessions, even the evaluation and evaluation process will require that HEIs have a robust computerized test system for online examinations with features such as integration with Aadhaar for student authentication, screen and webcam recording for live surveillance.
A student will get an additional three years to complete the program’s actual duration of the formal mode of education. So for a three-year course, a student will be six years old.

A committee of experts will examine the “suitability of the courses to be offered”, as well as the target groups and the implementation mechanism, the curricular aspects and the effectiveness of the evaluation criteria.
