Highlighting changing scenarios and emerging needs in Technology Enabled Learning (TEL): A feedback study from IGNOU Learners Ashish Kumar Awadhiya, Dr. Anshu Miglani, Dr. K. Gowthaman and Dr. V. P. Rupam ABSTRACT With the advancement in Technology Enabled Learning (TEL) and its easy accessibility, learners’ community is now going towards digital learning. It provides flexible learning, where learners can learn anytime, anywhere at their own pace. IGNOU being one of the largest mega Open University in the world is also providing Technology Enabled Learning in order to reach to the unreached section of the society. With the advent of availability of low cost internet and newer means of digital learning, IGNOU needs to adopt and upgrade its technology based teaching learning and support services. A survey was conducted during 2016, to assess the internet accessibility and emerging requirements of IGNOU learners. Total 2136 learners from 56 Regional Centres across India responded to the survey. The results of the survey indicated that learners frequently accessed internet and accessibility was not a limitation factor for them. Learners were inclined towards the use of technology enhanced learning opportunities and are using web as well as mobile based platforms. 68% learners liked to avail course content in e-content format. Learners selected English as their preferred language for e-content followed by Hindi. 89% learners suggested that IGNOU should launch a mobile app for effective support services, teaching and learning and other administrative services. Accordingly IGNOU should work towards enhancing Technology Enabled Learning experience of its learners by finding newer ways and technologies. It is also important to generate interactive e-content and m-content in a cost effective manner. IGNOU should also launch its mobile app for the learners for providing its services at their finger tips.
