In those times Nalanda and Taxila were the important institutions of learning and considered to be favorites Teqip of a number of foreign students.

Now with the change in times education system of India has undergone a sea change. Now pre-primary and primary, elementary and secondary, undergraduate and postgraduate are the different levels of education in India. Government too is making great efforts so that everyone can get access to education.

According to the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009, children between 6 to 14 years of age group will get the education for free.

Not only curricular but also extra-curricular activities are organized in these schools resulting in the all round development of the child. Although parents can also teach their children at home using the required resources yet home schooling is not welcomed to a nice extent. Government of India is also paying attention to vocational training at the secondary level of education so that the students can better understand their interests and accordingly choose their career.

As we open and peep into the News headlines every alternate day we see that all the nations small or big are implementing Video conferencing in important activities. There has been a drastic change in the approach of the political leaders in using Video Conferencing as a tool to acquire instant vision of the news as it happens. As Video conferencing is the only tool which can help to see and interact with the people in news instantly. Now it is to reiterate that Video Conferencing is becoming a common tool every where, whether it is much popular political leaders or health care of common man. Society where fast technology like 3G is being implemented and mobile video conferencing is more taking shape, schools play an important role where molding the children with trending technology becomes a responsibility.

As the child of today has to be proficient in diversified fields, the time, staff and the resources have to work in integration in order to make many concepts clear to the students. As the resources are scattered around the country and across the countries the sending the children to all the places is not possible as it involves expenses as well as time-consuming. Implementing Video Conferencing in Educational System as a powerful weapon can bring about awareness of skills and training programs for children through people who are proficient and are far of places from their class rooms.

Children learn by seeing people who are already successful. They keep role models in their mind and love to see and interact with successful personalities. Very few lucky children have the chance to interact with such personalities. If the successful people interact with children through Video Conferencing many schools which are remote and cannot even afford to come out of their village will be able to see their dream come true to interact with their role models which brings about new confidence in them, which helps in molding them into a great citizens of the nation.

Arranging a competition and participating in a competition requires the children to go to the venue leaving their regular classes. But if it is academic competition other than sports all the academic competitions can be held in all the schools by connecting them through Video Conferencing where the children can see and interact with other children of different schools and have the same feeling as if the competition is in the same room. Many of the handicrafts of India are from very remote villages where one can find skill full artisans at work. The handicrafts found in one place are unique to that place only and cannot be found in other places. Through Video Conferencing skill full art from one place can be introduced to children from various parts of the country which is impossible for the child to meet and learn from a skilled person located far away.
