In recent times world there are big number of distractions invade the concentration of a student in the classroom. With the advancement in technological gadgets for example laptops, notebooks, smart phones etc. major addition is of distraction. It is more difficult and challenging to maintain the interest and concentration of students in virtual environment where instructor/teacher is not physically present in the classroom which is typically a model of distance education. The lack of concentration level directly influences the quality of education. In the present studies, we have proposed a model and develop a software to use information and communication technology to increase the concentration level of the students studying in distance mode which will directly improve the quality of education imparted in distance mode.
