TOP DISTANCE EDUCATION INSTITUTES IN INDIA

Distance education accounts a special place in Indian Education System mainly due to its contribution in the increment of gross enrolment ratio as well as being able reach education to a large segment of people through their modern tools and techniques.

WHAT IS DISTANCE EDUCATION?

Distance education is a learning method through which education is imparted between the learner and the teacher separated through space and time. Unlike the traditional education system, the students are physically not pre

sent in the classroom but are supplied with study materials at their doorstep via various mediums such as print, CD-ROMs, audio or video tapes, internet etc. This mode of study was adopted by universities to help the working students and those incapable of pursuing education through regular streams.

OBJECTIVES OF DISTANCE EDUCATION

The course structure of distance education requires a lot of strategic planning as to provide education to the physically absent students. However, there are certain objectives of this mode of learning:

  1. A WIDER OPPURTUNITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION THROUGH AN EFFECTIVE ALTERNATE PATH: The choice of selection to this particular depends according to the different reasons of the people. Some might opt simply because they are in need of a refresher course to understand the latest development of their perfection while there are others who requires additional knowledge in a particular discipline.
  2. A CHEAPER AND AN EFFICIENT WAY OF LEARNING:Traditional means of schooling is neither affordable nor reachable to people owing to the huge population combined with limited availability of resources. Owing to the difficulties to match the expansion of schooling with the sum of money obtained, distance education acts as a more practical alternative.
  3. EDUCATING THE QUALIFIED AND WILLING STUDENTS: This course acts as an incentive to those students who are willing to study but unable to join regular university due to their reasons thereby helping them in the long run.
  4. AN OPPURTUNITY FOR EDUCATED PEOPLE TO IMPROVE THEIR KNOWLEDGE: It may so occur that a person is working on a professional field and as a result they are not able to afford a face-to-face teaching system due to unmatched timings. For such circumstances, distance education is a good choice as it not only helps people to continue their education but also provide opportunities to improve their knowledge.
  5. EDUCATION TO THOSE WHO SEEK IT AS A LIFE-LONG ACTIVITY: opportunities will be provided to everyone be it youth, housewives, agricultural and industrial workers who seeks to explore a new area of knowledge and finds it as a life-long activity.

SCOPE OF DISTANCE EDUCATION

Distance education might need more time to be at par with the regular courses in terms of placements and exquisite amount of salary but they do offer a decent amount of jobs to their students given that the former is quite affordable and cost-effective in comparison to the later.

Now even cities like Jaipur, Lucknow and even Distance MBA offered in Bhubaneshwar are available to a number of students who could not pursue higher education due to financial hardships.
