Overview Of Distance Learning Course In India


Despite of the constant efforts made in reforming worsening scenario of education in post-independence India, only a third fraction of the Indian population has been able to get itself educated. According to a recent study, only 12% of the school children continue their study till 10th standard and about only 10% of the people elgible to take admission in universities get themselves enrolled in one of those 18600 colleges and 360 universities.

It has been said that introduction of distance learning program will bring a revolution in the academic scenario of India. Do you think it is going to bring a change in the current education system prevailing in our country? Or such conventional methods can really take the scale up to meet the educational challenges?

Let us have a look on the overview of Distance Learning in India-

Distance education is often referred as distance learning where the mode of learning differs from a established style of obtaining education from a regular classroom attendance. The scope and demand of distance learning has greatly increased in the last couple of years, due to students entering in jobs at younger age before having their studies completed. Distance Learning System in India is well coordinated and promoted by The Council of Distance Education, which was formed under the Act of Indira Gandhi Open University, in 1985. The organisation also works for strengthening and improving the standards of distance learning in the country.

Growth of Correspondence Education

The education offered to the students by means of distance is much of a boon for them. Such students who are not being able to complete their studies through a regular college for several reasons, can easily pursue their education through distance learning option. In recent years, there has been a growth noticed in the number of students in India who have enrolled for any of the distance learning programs. Another main reason for its increasing demand is limited scores of seat available in universities and colleges that compel them to think and opt for it.

Highlighting the importance and adoption of distance learning education, the governor of Jammu and Kashmir has stated that distance education is one of the most suitable learning schemes that has reached up to remote areas. These are the areas which are far away from traditional academic bodies. In this mode of seeking education, the information imparts to the students by the educator is done either through print or online. However, e-learning is the most preferred way of communication among the students and is constantly increasing.

Distance Learning Institutes in India

One can avail distance learning program in India through a number universities or colleges. As a matter of fact, obtaining distance education is not only confined to the students but working professionals opting for such programs, diploma or degree courses, to improve their skills is on rise. The courses offered by the institues are similar to the courses offered by a regular college or university.

The offered courses are categorized under main disciplines such as Science, Commerce and Arts at undergraduate as well as postgraduate level degree programs. In India, the fee structure of a distance learning program is comparatively low for any particular course, what a regular college asks for. It makes easier for people to avail higher studies. One of the premier institutes offering distance learnign course in India is IGNOU. At present, there are nearly 11 Open Universities in India that are providing courses through distance learning.
