In 1971 the Open University in England began broadcasting lectures on television and 25,000 students enrolled for courses. In 1989 the University of Phoenix launched its private for-profit online school and paved the way for online education. Today we have top-class institutions offering a wide variety of recognised courses online. Courses range from creative writing and mathematics to chemistry and psychology. 

The Khan Academy is a popular Indian online education provider, which started as a set of instructional videos on YouTube. Online education offers learning to the student at the student’s convenience without the physical limitations of a classroom or forcing people to travel long distances. 
The future holds amazing possibilities - online education gives the opportunity for students in the most remote and inaccessible villages to participate and learn.  By 2019, it is expected that 50% of all classes taught will be delivered online.
