E-learning has started to make way into developing countries and is believed to have huge potential for governments struggling to meet a growing demand for education while facing an escalating shortage of teachers and other educational infrastructure. E-learning is seen as a tool for raising the number of students who have access to higher education, especially marginalized groups in rural areas, by being a cheaper and more flexible alternative. Among several challenges are the costs of providing, installing and managing e-learning hardware infrastructure. This paper is set to build a network model that will conserve bandwidth, will stream audio and video rapidly and at the same time require minimal administration. This means that high speed communication/data access can be achieved at the lowest possible cost, thereby enhancing e-learning.
