Abstract: The purpose of this research is to find out integration of Knowledge Management tools and ICT to facilitate student support services in all stages of e Learning (i.e. pre-admission to post qualification stage) in more effective way and e-Learning for the Higher Education (PG studies) courses in India with reference to Maharashtra would be adopted by more and more learners from across the countries with reducing the attrition rate in such courses which is very high in USA and other countries as talked about in literature. This research will develop a Knowledge Management Model which will be based upon understanding the learning styles and profiles of different learners from India. Here the learner profile and learning style will be incorporated for getting perfect match between learner and course by providing required student support services by flexible and a personalized approach to facilitate greater adoption of the course. The six variables will be analyzed viz. Relate, Adapt, Attract, Engage, Learn and Use for the same from Pre-admission to Post qualification stages. Relate and Adapt are variables at Pre-Admission stage, while Attract, Engage and Learn are during the course conduction stage. Use of the Knowledge gained during course comes after successful completion of the course and about applying that knowledge for the career advancement. This research will try to prove that the student support services are very important and if offered with flexibility, better personalization and customization for the learner would reduce the possibility of dropout of the learner to a greater extent.
