President Mukherjee, who delivered the fourth foundation day lecture of Central University of Orissa through video conferencing from the Rashtrapati Bhavan here, said that accessibility and affordability will result in greater inclusion.
"Many bright students are prevented by geographic location or economic difficulty from seeking higher education. Our universities must use technology solutions like e-education to address the problems of accessibility, quality, affordability and faculty shortage. Accessibility and affordability will result in greater inclusion," said President Mukherjee.
"It will improve the enrolment rate and enhance the quality of graduates produced," he added.
This is for the first time that video conferencing facility newly set up in Rashtrapati Bhavan has been used by President Mukherjee to address students of a Central University.
