Soon, networked learning to become global both for knowledge access and governance
In the digital age, networked learning is being advocated to make learning life-long. Networked Learning (NL) is regarded as a process of developing and maintaining learning connections with people and information along with communicating in such a way so as to support one another's learning to make it mutual and on-going.

Thus, in the NL, the exchange of knowledge takes place both in relation to others learners and various available learning resources for functional efficiency and curriculum coverage with flexibility.

The idea started developing when Ivan Illich envisioned 'learning webs' in 1970s as a model for people to network their learning when landlines, radio and TV were the resources for connections between people.

In the US, that time the 'city's curriculum network' was envisaged to let youth, children, families, neighbourhoods and institutions build new educational facilities in a way which extend and enrich them through NL.

Since the development of the Internet as a significant medium for access to information and communication, the practice of networked learning has tended to focus on its use.

These days, the NL systems not only facilitate access to learning but also the management of students for the administrative concerns various educational institutions. Digital India is an example of NL and governance in our country with individuals as nodes on the network.

The idea of NL has become all the more popular with the emergence of social media and emergent new ways open sources and access to them. Currently, networked learning environments exist to connect students from different parts of the world.
