Abstract: The new education system emphasizes the online based teaching-learning approaches. In particular, all the learners want to secure, open, affordable, and normal educational services. The open educational tools fulfill all the educational related problems to the learners. The study’s key objective is to figure out the level of use of accessible educational services and find out the level of excellence in education among the state universities of Tamilnadu research scholars. A selection of 300 research scholars from 22 state universities in Tamilnadu state is chosen randomly for the study. The thesis was performed by using a survey approach from 17/10/2020 and 26/12/2020. Data is evaluated using percentage analysis and t-test. Findings show that 30 percent of the state universities research scholars have a high level of accessible educational opportunities and 24 percent of them have a high level of excellence in college. Results also suggest a substantial gap in the use of accessible educational services by male and female state universities research scholars. There is no substantial gap in education performance among male and female state universities research scholars concerning gender. The COVID-19 outbreak and paralysis also criticized the schooling of migrant workers and their children. Open educational opportunities are a viable school infrastructure in the future, including in a virus epidemic, storm, hurricane, world war, etc.
