The present century is an age of knowledge-based economy. Though India's achievement in the field of higher education in the post-independence period is remarkable, gross enrollment ratio in higher education and the quality of higher education in India is not encouraging. ICT infrastructure is one way of stimulating growth in national innovation and economic productivity. According to NSSO survey in India, in higher education, 85.4% of students are able to operate computers, 81.6% of students are able to search the internet, and 78.2% of students are able to e-mail. The Government of India has taken various innovative strategies in higher education including online courses and facilities. The chapter has also highlighted different digital initiatives in higher education in India. In India MOOCs are offered by SWAYAM, IITBX, mooKIT, and NPTEL. Other digital innovation includes E-PG Pathshala, SWAYAM Prabha, e-Shodh Sindhu, Shodh Gangotri, Shodhganga, AISHE, National Academic Depository (NAD), etc.
