Study Through Correspondence


Correspondence education has brought about a tremendous change in the education system of our country. It was predicted that in the next two decades of this century, teachers from conventional teaching would ‘perform live’ to learners across the country with the help of satellite communication, low power transmitters and through the information super highways. The beginning has been made.

There are 10 open universities and 64 regular university running distance learning programs in our country. The emergence of the distance learning mode is providing benefits to many categories of learners in particular to late entrants, people on the job, people who do not have access to higher education in their place of stay and to those who wish to supplement their educational qualifications.

Open universities offer flexible course options which can be taken by entrants who may not have any formal qualification but have reached the required age and also have cleared a written test. The course can be taken at the student’s pace. Distance education centres of universities grants admission to candidates who fulfill minimum eligibility which is the same as for regular courses. Correspondence educational institutes provide students with course materials, contact classes and conduct examinations. Most of the teaching learning process incorporates printed learning material as well as the multimedia facilities set up at nodal centers or through the television and radio networks. These universities offer graduate, post graduate courses, M.Phil and Ph.D and also diploma and certificate courses many of which are career oriented.

In the article given below you can find the names of the universities conducting distance learning education programs.
