They’ve opted to raise value through a process of integration: content, evaluation/assessment, system to host the content, instructor resources and videos, and so on. India needs to build about 800 new universities by 2020. Value is a fuzzy concept.

It starts with the references to scale (40 mn Higher Ed students by 2020). Another surprising omission was a lack of discussion on new innovations (except for a brief session on New Frontiers in Assessments, which I thought was good and not just because I was one of the speakers) that could prove to be critical in a country this size. The good thing in the Assessments panel, moderated by Madan Padaki (from Manipal who incidentally was given a well deserved award for his contribution to the education sector), was that I heard something which was music to my years.

In the last 25 years, Higher Education enrolments have been growing at a CAGR of 6% with the current tally of 16 mn students expected to be 40 mn by 2020. .
