Abstract—In recent days, learning has radically changed and become beyond the conventional way of classroom teaching. With the advent of e-learning, the higher education aspiring students can leverage knowledge at their own time, own place and own pace. In West Bengal, e-learning has not been incorporated as a tool for higher education and as a result of which the GER is not at all impressive. This paper discusses the percentage of students’ enrollment in higher education in traditional way of learning and after incorporation of e-learning in higher education up to what extent the percentage increases. This paper also classifies the students who are willing to go for higher education along with the students who are not willing to go for higher education in both traditional ways of education as well as when e-learning is incorporated in higher education using Fisher’s Linear discriminant analysis.

Index Terms—Covariance matrix, e-learning, Fisher’s linear discriminant analysis, GER, Kolmogorov-Smirnov Z normality test, pooled estimator
