Nancy Makhijani commented on My personal story in finding a full Scholarship.

hi diana

In my opinion, these innovative online courses should encourage interactive learning sessions forproviding student teacher discussions and intra student discussions. These new learningprogrammes will not only nurture the talents, but also, it will encourage innovation culture and ascope for continuous improvements. This online education will provide mutual benefits for boththe needy students and the universities as well. The students from the weaker sections will getcost effective education, the universities will meet their profit objectives by inducting a largenumber of students in its virtual study centre. For example, some major universities in US andacross the world have started introducing cost-effective online courses for such students.

In my opinion, under the learn and earn programme, the students can pay their own tuition fees. We can take the examples of some major US universities who are providing simultaneous employment to their post graduate students by employing them as teaching assistants to teach and assist the under graduate students. The talented overseas postgraduate students are inducted in such learn and earn programmes in order to pay their own education cost.
