The program was excellent. Chairman sir has cleared many points as far as ICT based education or e-education is concerned. But i also agree with the other guest of planing commission that we have to make human resources habituated to ICT, only expensive technological infrastructure or concept or ideas cannot make the people skilled. My findings are....
Generally there is still a lack of awareness amongst the population, especially parents, of the effectiveness of e-learning. Many parents feel the traditional learning mode is better.

2. Bandwidth Issue And Connectivity
Due to bandwidth and connectivity limitations, downloading of engaging content to the learners will be slow. This creates frustration and boredom among learners and affects the ease of learning.
3 Computer Literacy And Digital Divide
In Bangladesh, there is a large segment of the population that is computer illiterate or half-literate.. This hinders the introduction and implementation of e-education.
4 Lack of Self-driven learners
Many of the students are NOT self-driven learners in Bangladesh. Students of developed countries leave their parents after the age of 18.

Recommendation is creating awareness, motivate the human power to enjoy learning on their own. Bottom line is, we have to create knowledge based economy on which China and India are progressing very fast. Our country is not a poor county, it is a poorly managed country... E-education has huge prospect when we can develop our power sector and the speed/bandwidth of Internet.
