India is a country with millions of youths, seeking knowledge to move ahead in contrary to their limits. This time is important for India to get prepared for the future. Though, we have many schools, enough teachers and facilities for students and teachers in cities, it is not true w. r. t rural regions. The students in the rural region can not have enough learning resource because of the limitation of time, space and the unequal allocation of educational resources. The situation can be changed with the help of information and communication technology and the use of computers. In this advanced change, more and more tools can overcome the geographic limitations, be utilized in learning and teaching environment, and then provide more educational opportunities for the students in rural areas. Elearning technologies have great potential in disseminating knowledge. However, the benefits of these technologies have to reach the rural masses of India, and otherwise they will be one of the causes of the Digital Divide. This paper presents an emerging multimedia service called Video-on-Demand system and also discusses its potential application for providing education in rural India.
