Technologically Sustainable and Accessible Higher Education is new found theme of researchers, practitioners and educators across the globe.

Due emphasis is now laid upon integrating the modes offered by technology for not only creating a sustainable educational environment but also providing quality driven accessible support services to the target group. Evidently, the ways and methods of reaching the target groups for providing learning opportunities in the realm of higher education through open and distance learning methods needs to be analyzed from this perspective. With the development of various ICT tools and their implementation in the educational sector, greater emphasis is being laid on integration of technology with education. Thus, calling for a transformation in the way educational opportunities along with support services were being rendered to the learners so far in open and distance learning. Transitioning from conventional methods of providing support services to distance learners, time has come when the educational institutions need to focus on adopting latest ICT based methods of reaching the learners and providing them support services through the digital media, thus, adapting to the environmental changes that are being ushered in through technology. With the mandate of moving from traditional methods to digital means of out reaching the stake holders, this national level seminar proposes to be a platform for all the partners to focus on the challenges posed by the onset of technological interventions brought about in distance education institutions, deliberate and discuss the various issues and perspectives, and formulate strategies for the implementation of the ICT based interventions with the objective of enhancing the outreach of quality educational opportunities to the length and breadth of the country, thus contributing to the “Digital India” mission of the Government of India.
