Satellite communication has opened new doors for the widespread dissemination of education. Space technologies have created a distance learning system that has enhanced learning opportunities for people in remote areas, provided learning resources to learners in developing countries, and provided opportunities for direct communication among education stakeholders to discuss future developments. In addition, it allows conducting joint projects and simplifies the exchange of experiences for continuous development.

Space technology has also enabled the transfer of lectures from anywhere in the world and enabling millions to see them simultaneously, saving effort, time and money.
